Updates for DMNG app11 September 2016
A new version of the DMNG app and a contribution and distribution video encoder that supports HEVC compression are among the product highlights on Aviwest’s IBC stand.
The DMNG app, for iOS and Android, allows video to be transmitted from the front or rear camera of a smartphone.
It now includes an improved interface and the addition of advanced camera settings such as focus, exposure and white balance. Dynamic resolution and video quality improvements are also included.
It is also available as a Software Development Kit (SDK) allowing broadcasters to develop their own bespoke application based on Aviwest technology.
Also on show at IBC is a new version of the company’s DMNG Manager that includes video grid and statistics view.
The grid feature allows users to allocate system resources using a drag and drop action while the statistics feature supplies information on SIM card consumption and bandwidth.
DMNG Manager can be used to monitor and manage a fleet of DMNG equipment.
The contribution and distribution video encoder is the HE4000.
This device supports HEVC compression for the distribution of SD, HD, and 4K content over unmanaged networks including the public internet.
It uses an HEVC/H.265 video encoder that allows broadcasters to deliver the same visu-al quality as H.264/AVC but with 50 per cent of the bitrate, in up to 4K.
The HE4000 also makes use of Aviwest’s SafeStream, a technology that incorporates
IP bonding stack and contribution network protocols, such as the H-ARQ (Hybrid Automatic Repeat Request) mechanism, to ensure safe delivery of live video.
