Going end-to-end with IPTV10 September 2016
Four new product lines form part of the ATX presentation at IBC this week, including end-to-end IPTV solutions, encoding with reliable video delivery over the internet, licence-free transcoding, and an IP to PAL mini headend.
VidiPlay middleware is a part of ATX’s end-to-end IPTV solution.
The system can include IP set-back boxes and smart TV clients to deliver IP video to large-format displays (TVs) as well as clients for PCs, tablets and mobile devices.VidiPlay also manages client authentication and access control, provides client UI customisation and supports advanced features such as an interactive programme guide, VoD, nPVR, digital signage and more.
ATX claimed the DigiVu II multi-channel encoders are ideal for encoding locally generated content and studio feeds, as well as for transporting video feeds between locations. These encoders provide best-in-class video quality at an affordable price and are simple to configure and use.
Video inputs include HD/SD-SDI, CVBS, HDMI and Component. Outputs include MPEG-2/H.264, SD/HD and multiple output profile encoding.
They feature optional integrated Zixi Feeder or VideoFlow DVP technologies for reliable video delivery over the internet. ATX said its VersAtivePro licence-free transcoding platform provides users with the freedom to transcode what they want, when they want and how they want in a cost-effective manner.
Finally, the ATX next-generation UCrypt IP to PAL (IP2PAL) mini headend is designed for conversion of IP video streams to PAL in a space-efficient and cost-effective manner. This device can ingest up to 60 MPEG-2/H.264,
HD/SD video streams and convert them to PAL.
