Signiant awarded patent for Intelligent Transport Architecture

Signiant’s Intelligent Transport Architecture has been officially recognised by the US patent office.

The architecture leverages machine learning to adapt to network conditions in real-time. It chooses the optimal number of parallel transport streams and selects either standard TCP or Signiant’s proprietary UDP-based acceleration protocol based on a variety of inputs including current and historical network conditions, available compute, storage type and the characteristics of the data set.

It is capable of multiple Gbps transfer speeds and is already deployed in Signiant’s SDCX (Software-Defined Content Exchange) SaaS platform for transfers between public and/or private Cloud services and/or storage.

“When early transfer tests showed speeds greater than 10 Gbps using settings derived through machine learning that weren’t intuitive or obvious, we knew we were onto something disruptive,” said Signiant CTO, Ian Hamilton. “As networks evolve and increase in bandwidth, Signiant’s transport becomes even more valuable and is now capable of speeds of 10s of Gbps. Standard transfer tools simply aren’t designed to take advantage of available bandwidth and so with today’s fatter pipes, this new architecture becomes even more critical as datasets get bigger and workflows are increasingly globally distributed.”

MediaKind launches Aquila on-demand solution

MediaKind has launched a VoD solution for the processing and delivery of video files over any network (cable, IPTV and OTT) to any device.

The solution enables the encode, transformation, processing, packaging and delivery of file-based video content, addressing VoD applications. It also delivers premium on demand streaming services whilst enabling fast provisioning for content, ultimate scalability, reduced operational complexity and flexible deployment choices.

It also supports high compression ratios across multiple codecs including MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC and HEVC as well as 8K and CMAF and transforms filed-based content for on-demand delivery.

Dejero announces new European channel partnerships

Dejero has strengthened its market presence in Ireland, Hungary and Portugal after forming new partnerships in each country.

Pantalha in Portugal, Rexfilm in Hungary, Creative Technology (CT) in Ireland, and INA TV in Greece all carry the company’s flagship products.

“As we continue to grow in the European market, we’re seeing increased demand for our connectivity solutions in a number of untapped geographical and vertical markets, as well as demand for on-the-ground support,” said Rob Waters, Dejero’s director of sales for EMEA. “These new partnerships bring in very local and experienced representation and prove our commitment to address the needs of our European customers.”
