RGB expands multiscreen solution

TV technology provider RGB Networks has expanded its Enhanced Video Intelligence Architecture (eVIA) to include the newly-upgraded TransAct encoder/transcoder.

Adding integrated encoding to RGB’s existing TransAct Transcoder product, the new TransAct encoder/transcoder now offers the ability to ingest uncompressed SDI-sourced live content, as well as IP and file input, for live or on-demand IP video delivery to smartphones, tablets, PCs and connected TVs, as well as traditional set-top boxes.

The enhanced TransAct encoder/transcoder offers a variety of input/output choices, including SDI input and output for live video, packaged formats such as Apple HLS, Microsoft Smooth Streaming, Adobe HDS, MPEG DASH or RTMP, or mezzanine format for just-in-time packaging. Offering density of up to four HD-SDI inputs per one rack unit platform, the scalable TransAct Encoder/Transcoder can fit into various environments, according to RGB.

“The addition of the newly revamped TransAct encoder/transcoder to our eVIA ecosystem, gives providers the key building blocks they need to stay on the leading edge of multiscreen video delivery,” said Nabil Kanaan, senior director, product marketing for RGB Networks.  “The strengthening of eVIA opens up new opportunities for video service providers to develop compelling live and on-demand services, which increase both subscriber retention and revenue-generation, and ultimately ease their transition to a monetised, multi-device video environment.”
