Digital Rapids updates Stream software

August 9, 2006

Stream 2.3 encoder management software from Digital Rapids includes new video processing plug-ins, extended MPEG support and additional Closed Caption support.

The new software-based, keyframeable video processing plug-ins can modify the incoming video during live ingest or transcoding. Plug-ins include graphic or video overlay, enabling still images or motion video to be superimposed over the input source, plus color space conversion and more.

MPEG-related enhancements include a new post-encode muxing tool, enabling multichannel audio file creation; enhanced compatibility with VOD server specifications; additional closed captioning options; and additions to the MPEG-2 live streaming capabilities to support both UDP and RTP/RTSP.

SCC and SAMI Closed Caption file creation and re-multiplexing allow mixed mode file ingest, delivery, re-encoding and playout while preserving Closed Caption data.
