At IBC 2016, DVEO to Debut High Quality H.264 Encoder and Decoder with Built-In DOZER™ ARQ FEC Packet Recovery

San Diego, California -- DVEO®, a well respected supplier to leading telco TV/OTT and cable operators around the world, is now shipping their packet recovery enabled H.264 encoder and decoder with DVEO's patented DOZER™ ARQ (Automatic Repeat Request) IP packet loss error correction and jitter compensation. DVEO will demonstrate the ARQ Link™ HD IP in stand 2.A34 at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam, September 9-13.

The ARQ Link HD IP combines standards based H.264 encoding, decoding, and IP networking with patented error correction for automated UDP packet recovery, ensuring perfect real-time video delivery over IP networks including the Internet. Designed for Telcos and multi-screen operators that deploy IPTV and OTT, it provides an affordable, scalable, and dependable solution for professional quality video distribution over congested public or private networks.

The ARQ Link encoder features 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, or SDI input and IP output. The matching decoder supports UDP input and converts the compressed digital video and audio into HD-SDI or SDI, or optional HDMI or ASI, output. Encoding/decoding latency is 1.5 seconds. The remotely manageable system supports resolutions up to 1080p50/60. It also performs AES-128 encryption between units.

"The ARQ Link HD IP is the newest addition to our DOZER ARQ equipped product family of encoders and decoders," stated Laszlo Zoltan, Vice President of DVEO. "It is ideal for reliably delivering error-free video over very long distances, or for streaming live news and sports programming over congested networks. At IBC, we will also show a miniaturized version which fits in the palm of your hand. That unit is targeted at journalists."

Options for the Linux® based system include H.265/HEVC encoding and decoding, HDMI or DVB-ASI input and output, and/or a Telco version with 10 bit encoding and redundant power supplies. The ARQ Link HD IP is also available in a two to sixteen channel version.
