Digital Rapids releases AVC/H.264 option for stream encoding
Digital Rapids has begun shipping AVC Encoder, an optional encoding module for Digital Rapids StreamZ, StreamZHD and DRC-Stream media encoding solutions and Stream Transcode Manager distributed transcoding system.
Supporting the encoding of AVC content for playback on consumer electronics devices, the AVC Encoder is powered by Nero Digital technology — co-developed by Nero and ATEME.
The encoder expands existing MPEG-4 and AVC/H.264 support in the Stream product family and increases encoding speeds, including real-time encoding at maximum quality from live SD sources and faster than real-time transcoding from files.
The encoder supports baseline and main AVC/H.264 profiles, simple and advanced simple MPEG-4 Part 2 profiles and AAC and High-Efficiency AAC audio.
