Exterity extends AvediaStream Transcoder Range

Edinburgh, 2nd June 2016Exterity, the leading provider of enterprise IP video technologies for the secure distribution of live, on-demand and recorded video over IP, today announced the extension of its AvediaStream transcoder range with the launch of the AvediaStream t5300 and improved t5600, which will make their debut at ANGA COM (June 6-9 in Cologne, Germany) and InfoComm 2016 (June 4-10, Las Vegas, NV, USA). The new t5300 enables organizations to deliver up to 40 channels simultaneously, in contrast to the performance-enhanced t5600, which now facilitates the delivery of up to 75 concurrent video channels. Both support content delivery up to 4K video quality.

The AvediaStream transcoders are high-performance content transformation tools that enable content to be easily converted into a compatible format for delivery to the user’s preferred viewing device, whether that’s a TV/display screen, computer or mobile device. Different transcoding activities require varying amounts of system resource. To help identify the remaining transcoding capacity, the AvediaStream t5300 and t5600 track the activity of the device in real time, displaying an easy-to-read usage chart in the user interface. The Transcoder range consists of hardware appliances capable of off-line (file-to-file) transcoding, live transcoding and streaming.

Colin Farquhar, CEO at Exterity, said: “We have designed the new AvediaStream t5300 and t5600 transcoders to ensure that our customers benefit from the best performance for their needs across a wide range of devices. The t5300 and t5600 adapt to many environments, and can be deployed and used by companies of all sizes in, for example, the corporate & finance world who need to maintain the highest level of security, or by offshore clients,such as oil & gas or cruise ships, who use their existing IP network to distribute a wide range of channels to remote sites and a broadening range of devices.”

As video becomes a crucial asset for all these sectors, the highly versatile AvediaStream t5300 and t5600 transcoders enable the IP video system to deliver live news, corporate communications, health & safety messages and promotional content in a seamless way to any connected device. The transcoder range supports the latest industry standards for transcoding, including H.264 and MPEG-2. To enable organizations to deploy their IP video system across a wide number of devices, the transcoders automatically adapt the bit rate and resolution to each device’s capability, and rotate the content to fit in the screen, providing vertical images for digital signage or airport flight information displays. Finally, to utilize the infrastructure in the most effective way, the transcoder range can re-encapsulate stream transport container format to match playback devices, or convert between multicast and unicast to pass through routed networks.

The AvediaStream t5300 and t5600 transcoders will be on show at the following events:

  • ANGACOM (June 6-9, Cologne Messegelände, Germany) on stand 1 / S15
  • InfoComm 2016 (June 4-10, Las Vegas Convention Centre) on stand N2839
