DVEO to Showcase Inexpensive Multichannel 8VSB or Clear QAM Remote Monitoring System at NAB 2015

San Diego, California -- DVEO, the broadcast division of Computer Modules, Inc. (CMI), will showcase their compact 8VSB or clear QAM remote monitoring system and H.264 encoder/transcoder at the NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) Show, April 13-16, in Las Vegas, Nevada, at booth SU6605.

Now shipping, the Lynn Box 8VSB/IP™ is designed to be an affordable platform to ingest video from terrestrial broadcast stations, transcode MPEG-2 video and audio into H.264, and provide for choices for resolutions, protocols, wrappers, and containers. It streams this content to iPads, iPhones, content delivery networks, and remote video capture devices.

The embedded Linux® based system receives an 8VSB (terrestrial digital or analog RF) or clear QAM input, plus one GigE IP input. A second 8VSB or QAM input can be ordered as an option. The system outputs multiple simultaneous IP streams, and a built-in server supports 100+ HLS users.

"The Lynn Box 8VSB/IP enables broadcast engineers to remotely monitor their over-the-air signals using iPhones, Androids, and other devices," stated Laszlo Zoltan, Vice President of DVEO. "It is also an ideal RF to IP gateway for streaming video to television station web sites, content delivery networks (CDNs), or IPTV compatible appliances or players."

The Lynn Box 8VSB/IP supports HD (up to 1080p) and SD resolutions, plus custom resolutions. It features remote management and multi level security. The compact system is just seven and a half inches wide.
