Exterity, which delivers IPTV (News - Alert) communications solutions, has revealed its revamped encoder ranges that boast capabilities similar to that offered by IP media servers. These devices are capable of streaming digital content to mobile devices, as well as enable digital signage integration.
The new AvediaStream e26xx and e36xx encoder ranges enable users to stream video for a variety of user platforms including computer desktops and TVs. Like IP media servers, these encoders stream video on platforms that use IP networks, as well stream video to mobile networks or mobile devices using the Wowza (News - Alert) IP Media Server.
Wowza Media Server 3 is the latest IP media server featuring powerful multi-threaded software that has the ability to deliver up to 10Gbps per-server video streaming performance for on-demand and live streaming.
“By integrating the Wowza Media Server, a market leading solution for streaming video over Wi-Fi, with our new e26xx and e36xx encoder ranges we’ve provided a way for our customers to seamlessly stream one piece of content to all digital devices, from a smartphone to a desktop, at the same time,” said Colin Farquhar, CEO at Exterity, in a statement.
“Like our class leading AvediaStream TVgateway range, which offers the most flexibility, features and performance, the release of these new AvediaStream Encoders ensures we continue to give our customers the same standard for their expanding encoding requirements,” Farquhar added.
The AvediaStream modules offer greater flexibility thanks to the support for both MPEG 2 and H.264 encoding. It also accepts a wide range of SD, HD and PC video inputs.
