The company’s new Multiscreen Launch Platform (MLP) is being showcased at IBC. Described as an all-in-one carrier-grade product, it is a high-density transcoder, packager and origin server in 1RU that is said to be ideal for high-value internet video services.
This MLP inputs up to 12 HD or 24 SD sources and outputs HLS streams to up to 500 subscribers simultaneously. It’s designed as an OTT solution for video operators and integrators actively planning multiscreen trials, small deployments, or hospitality applications.
The end-to-end multiscreen solution is multilingual-aware, to better serve global operators, with DVB-subtitle burn-in and multi-audio support. Set-up is claimed to be simple with VidiOS, WISI’s management and monitoring tool.
Inca Networks, WISI’s transcoding team, is currently adding HEVC support to transcoding and streaming products with general availability expected in early 2018. HEVC integration will provide operators with an additional 60 per cent in compression savings, the company said.
