Digigram to Showcase OTT-Focused Enhancements to AQILIM *SERV/FIT Video-Over-IP Codec at IBC2014
Reduction in Cost per Output Stream and Integration of Octoshape Technologies Yields Direct Return on Investment for Broadcasters and Telcos With High-Density Encoding Requirements
MONTBONNOT, France — Sept. 2, 2014 — Digigram today announced that, at IBC2014, it will demonstrate the enhanced encoding capabilities of the company’s AQILIM *SERV/FIT IP video codec, including the ability to encode multiple streams at multiple resolutions simultaneously. With this single solution, users can quickly, easily, and cost-effectively publish content in multiple containers to multiple content delivery networks (CDNs) at once.
“Due to the high volume of content they process and distribute, large broadcasters and telecom operators require high-density encoding capabilities, and the AQILIM *SERV/FIT IP video codec meets this demand,” said Laurent Gros, video product manager at Digigram. “We’ve made a major upgrade that equips this AQILIM codec with a multiple-container output feature, in turn enabling users to output more streams in a greater variety of resolutions and streaming protocols. This capability not only improves operational efficiency, but also simplifies and streamlines delivery of content to consumers on virtually any type of screen.”
To ensure reliable, high quality distribution of video to each of these target devices, Digigram has also incorporated Octoshape’s Infinite Uplink technology into the newly enhanced AQILIM IP video codec as well as MPEG-TS, HLS, and RTMP streaming protocols. In addition to increasing encoding density and reducing the cost per output stream, the use of Octoshape’s Infinite HD client side transmuxing features drastically simplifies the number of encoding outputs, and further reduces encoding related expense.
The AQILIM *SERV/FIT IP video codec will be on display at Digigram’s IBC2014 stand 8.C51, and will be available for shipping immediately following the exhibition.
