German production services provider nobeo has used Digital Rapids’ StreamZ Live adaptive streaming encoders for live streaming production both within its studios and in its new @-car production vehicle. The @-car allows nobeo to offer broadcasting for event and business TV plus live online streaming.
One StreamZ Live encoder is deployed in the @-car for live productions from the field, with additional StreamZ Live units in nobeo’s Internet TV studios for producing live online shows. The encoders transform live HD source feeds into multiple output streams in a variety of resolutions, bitrates and formats for live OTT delivery as well as creating VoD assets.
“The Digital Rapids systems meet our expectations perfectly and are straightforward to use. In live situations in particular, it is extremely important to be able to rely on the technical components fully and entirely,” said Guido Amann, CTO at nobeo GmbH. “Alongside the technological benefits, it is worth highlighting the excellent support we have received. We wish more products were like this – being simple to use and accompanied by excellent support from the manufacturer.”
“A rapidly growing number of outside broadcast service providers are capitalising on the audience-expanding opportunities of multiscreen delivery and producing dedicated online and mobile experiences directly in the field,” said Clive Vickery, managing director, EMEA and Asia at Digital Rapids. “The unmatched flexibility, comprehensive feature set and robust reliability of our StreamZ Live encoders make them ideal for meeting the rigorous demands of live on-site production environments, and we’re pleased that nobeo has chosen our solutions for their operations both in-studio and in the field.”
StreamZ Live encoders provide multiscreen output format support for audience-expanding live streaming applications, allowing content and rights owners to reach viewers on devices from tablets and mobile phones to game consoles, PCs and ‘smart’ TVs.
