An IP media server is a common, shared IP media-processing platform that can be used in transcoding IP streams in real-time, in addition to powering voice quality enhancement, transrating and IPv4/v6 address scheme normalizing.
Recently, Motama, a provider of solutions for delivery, processing, and presentation of audio and video content in IP networks, revealed it will be displaying the complete set of IPTV (News - Alert) server products at the 2012 IP&TV World Forum in London.
The company’s IPTV server solutions are considered important for building a streamlined and cost-effective backbone for live OTT streaming.
TVCaster by Motama represents the next-generation of IPTV server appliances. It is a turn-key solution offering all the cutting-edge functionality you would expect from an integrated DVB receiver, descrambler, remultiplexer, and IP streaming server.
When leveraging an IP media server, there is large degree of flexibility offered in network location support. CodecCaster is a turn-key that provides high-performance and high-quality IP-based format conversion, and fully supports transcoding to multiple bitrates for adaptive streaming.
In addition, RelayCaster server appliances from the company allow for optimized transmission of IPTV streams. By using the RelayCaster Streaming Protocol, reliability and data rates of streaming live content along long distance links, such as the public Internet, can be greatly improved.
Another important product is TimeshiftCaster, which is an IPTV media server allowing for compensating for time zone differences.
All the products from Motama are compatible with existing conditional access systems, OTT streaming servers, and set-top boxes and can be seamlessly integrated into any existing infrastructure.
