A new codec, the Aqord *LINK/LE has been released, promising cost-effective transport of high-quality video over IP networks (fibre, xDSL, satellite). Digigram is also demonstrating the enhanced encoding capabilities of its Aqilim *SERV/FIT IP video codec, including the ability to encode multiple streams at multiple resolutions simultaneously.
Designed for video contribution in broadcast, live event, and live distribution applications, Digigram said its new addition to the Aqord family allows users to begin streaming almost immediately. With both H.264 encoding or decoding capabilities, the Aqord *LINK/LE offers flexibility in system deployment. Housed in a 19-inch encoder/decoder rack, the unit features SDI raw video I/O and network I/O for IP-based live streaming.
The company said the minimal configuration required for the new codec makes it easy and affordable for users to get into IP-based video transport without compromising on video quality.
The Aqilim *SERV/FIT lets users publish content in multiple containers to multiple content delivery networks (CDNs) at once. In addition to increasing encoding density and reducing the cost per output stream, the Aqilim *SERV/FIT streamlines provisioning of content to all variety of display devices via OTT services.
