DVEO Launches 40 Channel Real Time Transcoder, Scaler and Streamer for OTT and IPTV Applications at NAB 2013


MPEG Magnus MF
San Diego, California -- At NAB 2013, DVEO, the broadcast division of CMI, is introducing their new multi format, multi function 40 channel RF capturing transcoder, scaler, and streamer. The real time, broadcast quality MPEG Magnus™ MF transcodes up to 20 720p HD streams, or 10 1080i/p HD streams, or 40 SD streams from MPEG-2 to H.264, all in a 3 RU system. For satellite input (DVB-S/S2), the system sees 200 satellite streams and transcodes up to 40 SD streams.

The MPEG Magnus MF will make its debut at the NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) Show, April 8-11, in Las Vegas, Nevada, at booth SU6505.

Based on Embedded Linux®, the MPEG Magnus MF features multiprotocol, multiresolution, and multiwrapper support including RTMP, RTSP, RTMP, HTTP, Smooth, and Live Streaming. It relies on an Intel® Dual 8 Core processor as an accelerator.

The MPEG Magnus MF creates simultaneous high, medium, and low bitrate streams. The inputs can be simultaneous choices from HD-SDI, SDI, DVB-S/S2, 8VSB, QAM, DVB-C, DVB-T, DVB-ASI, Analog, or GigE and IP (H.264, MPEG-2, or VC-1).

"We are proud to offer this very powerful transcoder to our customers," stated Laszlo Zoltan, Sales Manager for DVEO. "The MPEG Magnus MF makes it easy for broadcasters, content providers, and cable or mobile companies to deliver content to iPads, laptops, OTT televisions, IP capable set-top boxes, and mobile devices via IP."

The MPEG Magnus is also available in a variety of versions with 6 to 12 simultaneous inputs of a single video format, including DVB-S+S2 (12 inputs), 8VSB (10 inputs), DVB-T+T2 (8 inputs), Analog (6 inputs), DVB-ASI (8 inputs), IP (8 inputs), QAM (8 inputs), or DVB-C (8 inputs). Customized versions are available.
