Arris launches new adaptive bit-rate packager

Technology provider Arris has launched a new packager for adaptive bit-rate video streams for multiscreen services.

The AVP100 Adaptive Video Packager delivers live-linear and on-demand packaging for adaptive bit rate video streams, and has been developed as an integrated component of the Arris end-to-end multiscreen solution including its Secure Media DRM, GT3 transcoder and VideoFlow content management system.

The AVP100 comes in a 1RU package with dual AC or DC, hot-swappable power supplies, and four Gigabit Ethernet ports for data input/output and management control. It is designed for delivery of HTTP adaptive bit-rate video services to any display device including tablets, PCs, Macs, laptops, IP set-top boxes and smartphones.

“The AVP100 can package up to 50 channels of live video in real time or up to 800 Mbps of on demand video,” said Bruce McClelland, president, network & cloud, global services, Arris. “These advanced capabilities are designed for service providers looking for a cost-effective solution with pre-integrated components that allow for the fast and scalable deployment of multiscreen services.”
