RGB Networks revealed the expansion of its Enhanced Video Intelligence Architecture (eVIA) yesterday, Sept. 4. The upgrade will feature an updated TransActEncoder/Transcoder to add integrated encoding to the already existent TransAct Transcoder product, which is bound to change the meaning of live TV.
These enhancements now offer the capability of taking in uncompressed SDI-sourced live content, as well as IP and file input, allowing for live or on-demand delivery to smartphones, tablets, PCs as well as connected TVs and traditional set-top boxes.
RGB: Advanced Video Leader 2010
Detailed capabilities of the TransActEncoder/Transcoder include; SDI I/O for live video streaming, packaged formats like Apple’s HTTP live streaming (HLS) Microsoft (News - Alert) Smooth Streaming , Adobe HTTP Dynamic Streaming (HDS), MPEG Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (MPEG DASH) or RTMP; and mezzanine format for just-in-time packaging. All these capabilities are aimed at ensuring that broadcasted content reaches the audience as fast and as smoothly as possible.
The enhancement to RGB’s multi-screen delivery and monitoring strengthens its TV Everywhere ecosystem, providing video service providers (VSPs) the gateway to prepare for the next phase multiscreen. Nabil Kanaan, Sr.Director of Product Marketing in the company said that "the strengthening of eVIA opens up new opportunities for video service providers to develop compelling live and on-demand services.” This is an act that will change TV from constant boring schedules to a dynamic self selected viewing adventure.
The demonstration of a complete eVIA solution will be on display at the IBC on the 7th of September this year in Amsterdam, Netherlands with a RGB team available to offer assistance on a hands-on demo at stand number 4.C78.
Other products in the eVIA family include the Video Multiprocessing Gateway (News - Alert) (VMG) which features real-time transcoding capabilities and the Transact Packager that includes a just-in-time capability to package video streams for major IP streaming protocols.
It is with no doubt therefore that RGB Networks, a private profitable company based in Sunnyvale, California, with offices around the world, has a vision of helping video service providers to migrate to a multi-screen environment. This will help achieve linear and on-demand delivery of video content over managed and unmanaged IP networks.
