Faster file encoding for HLS15 September 2017
A ‘faster than real-time’ file encoder for HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) and VOD is being debuted at IBC.
Called the Quick Segmenter: VoD Files, the device is said to be able to encode files at approximately one-fifth of the video’s actual playing time. It has been designed for telcos and multi-screen operators that deploy IPTV and OTT services and stream content to mobile devices, content delivery networks (CDNs) and remote video devices.
Laszlo Zoltan, vice president, DVEO, said: “We go straight from a master or mezzanine file to multiple encoded segment files for use by a variety of devices. The Linux-based system automatically pushes HLS playlists and segments to CDNs or any media server for VoD distribution via HLS Webdav or with file transfer.”
Quick Segmenter: VoD Files re-encodes video content folders to multiple packaged profiles and pushes them to CDNs for ABR VOD (Adaptive Bit Rate Video on Demand) distribution.
Also on show is a real-time high-speed file transport offering called Faster File: Secure AFT (Accelerated File Transfer) with RIFT (Real-time Internet File Transfer).
