Mezzanine contribution encoder unveiled9 September 2016
A low latency 4:2:2 mezzanine encoder to be used for content contribution during coverage of sport and other live events has been launched at IBC.
DVEO’s Premio DIG/IP: Telco is a real-time encoder that can receive one SDI or HD-SDI input from a camera, editing system or video server and encode it to a single mezzanine quality H.264 or H.265 1080p stream at .1 to 50Mbps, complete with 4:2:2 or 4:2:0 colour sampling.
Laszlo Zoltan, vice president, DVEO, said: “This is a premium quality 10 Bit 1080p encoder, able to encode video to mezzanine quality, that is designed for critical contribution applications and has many redundancy features.
With a latency of 200 milliseconds and 50Mbps support, this system is ideal for streaming sports, concerts and other events to telco and cable headends.”
The system is Linux-based and allows users to overlay logos, text and closed captioning to the stream. It also supports SCTE 35 triggers for ad insertion via SCTE 104 triggers.
In addition the Premio DIG/IP: Telco features up to four audio pairs in order to support different languages. 400GB of stream archiving is also included.
The H.265 output is available as an optional extra.
Further options include H.265/HEVC and/or DVEO’s patented DOZER UDP packet recovery technology for sending video reliably over the public internet and across long distances.
