Discover Video Introduces Next-Gen Video Delivery Platform – DEVOS 4

Discover Video today announced DEVOS 4, the next generation enterprise and Internet delivery platform. Building on the success of hundreds of existing corporate, government, and education customers, DEVOS 4 gives customers unparalleled organizational control in a comprehensive video delivery platform.

DEVOS 4 is a complete live and on-demand streaming server and media management portal that supports desktops, cell phones, tablets, Roku players, and smart-TVs.

“The market really appreciates our proposition,” said Rich Mavrogeanes, Discover Video CEO, “and our rapid growth illustrates it. With built-in live encoders for PCs, Macs, iPhones, and iPads, complete Digital Video Signage, Priority Alert, and with a world-class customizable user interface, we are very proud to be making a difference in our industry.”

DEVOS 4 allows content owners to organize their live and VoD content as they wish. With graphical drag-and-drop features, content can be instantly and easily organized into trees and branches, and every point on a tree has its own customizable landing page. Rights and privileges can be assigned to any user or content.

DEVOS supports a new line of HD software encoders, called Streamsie®. The ultra-easy Streamsie encoders support multiple video inputs as well as screen capture, and provide both video recording and live streaming. The video recording supports a much-desired “pause” function where a live recording can be paused and resumed, for example to skip a presentation break without having to later edit the video file.

Streamsie is available for Windows PC, Apple Mac, and for iPhone and iPad. DEVOS provisions Streamsie with credentials so that customers may install Streamsie without license worries or complexity on all computers and DEVOS controls simultaneous use. This breakthrough approach makes it possible for every student, employee, teacher, or even customer to have live and VoD production capabilities on multiple computers.

Discover Video Introduces Digital Signage App for Samsung Smart TVs

Discover Video announced today the availability of a free Digital Signage Application for Samsung Smart TVs, an industry first. Until now, virtually all digital signage deployments required a “player” box associated with the display, which added cost and complexity. With the advent of Smart TVs, Digital Signage is now built-in to the display, and because the Smart TVs support WiFi, Digital Signage can now be deployed by only connecting power.

The Digital Signage App connects to a cloud or premises DEVOS system, the world-class, comprehensive video streaming system in use by governments, corporations, and schools around the world. The system supports an unlimited number of signs, unlimited playlists, and supports many templates to display live video, video-on-demand, images, PowerPoint presentations, text, and RSS feeds.

The Digital Signage App also supports the patent-pending Priority Alert system that displays video, text, and web messages during emergencies or other important events.
“Our customers need a unified, easy-to-use system that supports video on desktops, Smartphones, tablets, and in common areas like lobbies.” said Rich Mavrogeanes, Discover Video founder and CEO. “Cost and complexity are often barriers to customer success, and now our customers can deploy easy to use Digital Signage for free.”

For non-Smart TVs, Discover Video offers the Soft Top Box® that works with virtually any display, and Digital Signage users can even use existing computers to display Digital Signage.

Samsung Smart TV’s are available from popular retail outlets and online stores. The Discover Video Signage App is available from the Samsung App Store for free. The DEVOS system, live stream encoders, live stream transcoders, capture devices, and related products are available from Discover Video and select partners.

If you have tried other low cost USB 3.0 devices, you’ll be pleasantly surprised that the Captiva works perfectly without driver and reliability issues.” said Rich Mavrogeanes, president and CEO of Discover Video. “No more cracking the lid and installing PCIe cards in PCs. Now you can do true HD streaming from a laptop.”

“Our customers have been asking for live streaming from iOS” said Rich Mavrogeanes, Discover Video CEO. “Schools want to use iPad for morning announcements, corporations want to provide live, mobile, just-in-time training, and others want to broadcast live events while on the road. The applications are just endless.”

Streamsie is the first high quality live video streaming App that supports long duration in-sync audio/video and it is not tethered to a just one video distribution system. This allows Streamsie to be used with Discover Video’s platforms, but also with Akamai, Limelight, Edgecast and other CDN’s, and with customer’s live streaming servers such as Adobe FMS, Wowza, Helix, and others. It supports “autorotation”, allowing you to stream in both landscape or portrait mode automatically and supports a wide selection of streaming rates and resolutions.

“DEVOS 3.0 is perfect for enterprises that need to distribute live and on-demand media efficiently and securely to employees, students, partners, and customers”, said Rich Mavrogeanes, president and CEO of Discover Video. ”In our modern mixed desktop-and-mobile world, DEVOS 3.0 combines the best features of web services like YouTube with world-class live streaming, any-platform delivery, set top boxes, Digital Signage, and Priority Alert.”

A bonus for schools and universities is the Priority Alert feature, extensively used by the U.S. military.

DEVOS is the first private video system to incorporate the popular, inexpensive Roku set top box into the proposition. The entire live and on-demand video library can be viewed on a under $100 box, making it extremely easy to deploy video everywhere.

The DEVOS applications include distance learning/lecture capture at colleges and universities, flipping the classroom or morning announcements in K-12 schools, video training and executive broadcasts in businesses, and government meeting distribution in towns, cities, states, and federal agencies. It can also be used to delivery live video feeds from security IP cameras located anywhere.
