ATX to showcase encoding and transcoding platform

ATX will use the ANGA COM exhibition to showcase its VersAtive encoding and transcoding platform, as well as its DigiVu multichannel encoding and transmission product and DVIS encoder.

The VersAtive encoding and transcoding platform can be configured as a standalone device or to work as part of a cluster of VersAtive devices (offline transcoding). The platform can support a variety of inputs (IP, HD/SD-SDI, HDMI, Component or Composite) and can encode (broadcast quality H.264/MPEG-2 SD/HD) or transcode (broadcast quality H.264 to MPEG-2/MPEG-2 to H.264 SD/HD) on a standalone basis or for adaptive bit rate/multi-screen services applications on a live or off-line basis. Currently, the VersAtive supports PC (adaptive Flash streaming), mobile/tablet technologies (HLS, RTSP), and television formats (H.264/MPEG-2 TS).

The 3RU and 1RU DigiVu multichannel encoding and transmission product versions are optimised for headend applications such as PEG or community channel encoding.

The platform supports MPEG-2/H.264, SD/HD encoding of up to 10SD/5HD programmes, QAM demodulation and transmission via QAM or IP.

The DigiVu CD version accommodates an integrated channel deletion filter for program “add/drop” applications. The DVIS line products all feature an MDU hardened form factor and are optimized for local digital video content insertions to MDUs as well as local content backhaul to the hub/headend.

The DVIS and DVISm (Mini) support MPEG-2/H.264, SD/HD encoding of up to 10SD/5HD programs (for DVIS), QAM demodulation, and accommodate an integrated channel deletion filter for program “add/drop” applications and support transmission via QAM or IP.

The DVISn (Nano) is available in either 1 or 2 program versions and is geared towards applications requiring a basic and cost-effective QAM insertion into an RF channel left empty on the cable plant or one at the band edge. The DVISn is also available with IP output for local content insertion into IPTV networks.

The DVISf (fibre) is ATX’s new optical DVIS version which incorporates an optical transmitter and optional EDFAs for insertion of local video content directly into an FTTx-based architecture.

All DigiVu and DVIS products feature an HTTP-based management interface and SNMP support allowing them to be configured and monitored from either local or remote locations.

 

ATX will exhibit at ANGA COM on Stand G20, Hall 10.2.
