Building IPTV specialist, Exterity
, debuted its new AvediaStream Transcoder, which use High Definition (HD) video streams to create lower bitrate alternatives, enabling video content to be streamed to the widest possible range of screens and devices. The new additions to Exterity’s portfolio aid organizations across a wide variety of industries (broadcast, corporate, hospitality, stadiums or education) to distribute video content easily and efficiently, regardless of the viewing size or the bandwidth available for transmission.
Traditionally, organisations have struggled with streaming the high quality video available inside their building or campus to employees outside of the company’s local IP network. However, Exterity’s new AvediaStream Transcoders enable HD content used locally to be easily converted into low resolutions or bitrates for effective streaming over an Internet connection or Wi-Fi. This allows content to be delivered efficiently to remote workers, students or in remote offices/locations worldwide.
Distributing AV content without the need for increased bandwidth or infrastructure costs is important for organizations wanting to communicate effectively with all stakeholders. Transcoding, as part of Exterity’s broad range of integrated, end-to-end Building IPTV solutions, enables organizations to create multiple versions of low bandwidth channels while maintaining the original HD version. This cutting-edge transcoding technology creates duplicate channels for use with a variety of platforms and applications. For example, the original HD source for use on LCD screens in reception areas can be transcoded to SD for embedding into an internal webpage and QVGA for streaming to mobile devices.
This is possible due to Exterity’s live transcoding capability, further reinforcing the company’s leading position in AV over IP distribution. Using the technology HD streams can be easily converted into a SD stream (transcoded) and lower resolution (transrated), efficiently scaling the content for delivery to mobile devices, embedding in web pages or integration with digital signage. Furthermore, the Transcoders can convert new video formats, such as H.264, into MPEG-2 for compatibility and integration with legacy devices such as SD set-top-boxes.
Exterity’s Building IPTV solutions enable organisations to use existing building, campus, or wide-area networks to leverage the power of TV and video for success.
