DVEO Launches Portable Dual Input SDI/HD-SDI Live Streaming & Encoding Appliance with Touch Panel Control — Compact System Weighs Only 7.4 Pounds/3.36 Kilograms

Mamba DIG/IP Portable Streamer-Encoder

Portable SDI/HD-SDI to IP Streamer/ Encoder with Touch Panel Control – Mamba DIG/IP


New Mamba DIG/IP™ Encoder will be Featured at IBC 2013, is Ideal for Electronic News Gathering and Live Streaming

San Diego, California — August 12, 2013 — DVEO, the broadcast division of Computer Modules, Inc. (CMI), is now shipping their new live portable light weight HD-SDI to IP streaming appliance with HD-SDI in that delivers content to iPads, laptops, OTT televisions, and mobile devices via IP. DVEO will debut the new system at Stand 2.A34 at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam, September 13-17.

The Mamba DIG/IP™ is only 12.25 inches long and 8.25 inches wide. It connects to two simultaneous uncompressed SDI or HD-SDI video inputs from cameras, editing systems, or video servers, and supports simultaneous IP input. Optional versions are available for a single HDMI input or 4 analog (composite) inputs, instead of SDI/HD-SDI inputs.

The device can create multiple simultaneous high, medium, and low bitrate H.264 HD or SD IP streams and sends them to smart phones, tablets, and content delivery networks (CDNs). It outputs two 1080i/p streams, or one 1080 i/p and one 720p HD stream, or six SD streams. The IP transport streams can be provided with most industry standard protocols, including UDP, RTP, or IGMP, and wrappers such as HLS, RTMP, RTSP, etc.

The Mamba DIG/IP features an LCD touch screen for monitoring and front panel controls. An easy-to-use management interface is used for setup and configuration and can be run from anywhere via the public internet. Different configurations can be saved at any time. Remote management (SNMP, REST or SOAP) and multi level security are built in.

“The new Mamba DIG/IP combines portability and ease of use with true HD video quality, 24×7, for webcasting and streaming,” stated Scott Grizzle, Product Manager for DVEO. “We recommend it for electronic news gathering, streaming live video from events, concerts, sporting events, corporate training, and religious services. The Mamba is designed for a solo webcast/streaming engineer to show up to an event and grab a video or source feed. Once they have the feed they can use the front panel to change the IP address and destination and start and stop the streams. For the full blown capabilities the user can log in remotely and customize more. This allows one webcast engineer to control multiple machines and customize for optimal delivery. So in all actuality, the unit could be shipped to a live event preconfigured and anyone can make onsite changes while not changing the overall delivery.”

The system is also available with HDMI or composite input instead of HD-SDI input. Another option is DVEO’s built-in Live+Anytime Server™ live media distribution server.

Audio output is AAC, Ogg Vorbis, optional MP3, optional MPEG-1 Layer II, or optional “SurCode for Dolby Digital” AC-3. Supported resolutions include qHD, H.264up, QCIF, QVGA, CIF, 480i, 480p, 576i, 720p, or any custom size up to 1080p.

The system runs on an Intel® 4 core i7 based CPU. The application runs on a “minimal” UBUNTU Linux® kernel.

The Mamba DIG/IP is compatible with major brands of IP devices including DUNE HD™, Amino™, Roku, Atlanta DTH, and Apple iPad® and iPhone®. It is also compatible with major brands of CDNs and H.264 decoders. The device is certified for use on Eutelsat Ka band systems.

(CMI), will feature numerous innovative new products at two exhibitions this month: TelcoTV, October 25-26 in Las Vegas, Nevada, at booth 631, and Streaming Media West, October 30-31 in Los Angeles, California, at booth 47.

    DVEO products at the two shows will include:
    1. 400 Channel Enterprise Class Multiblade Transcoder Streaming System for Mobile and OTT – MultiStreamer Brutus™ I IP/IP
    2. Multichannel HLS Server – Infinity Streamer (mini) .5T/50ch™
    3. On Air Graphics System for Ads, News Crawls, and Logos – Ad Serter IP/ASI/SDI™
    4. Compact SDI/HD-SDI to IP Live Streaming Appliance – MultiStreamer DIG/IP™ (micro)
    5. IP to SDI/HD-SDI Video and Audio Decoder – D-Streamer IP/DIG™
    6. Portable, Multifunction, Streaming Production System Flypack – MultiStreamer Flypack™
    7. IP Time Delay for 40+ Transport Streams, for IPTV Cloud Based Time Shifting – DelayServer IP™

    1. 400 Channel Enterprise Class Multiblade Transcoder Streaming System for Mobile and OTT – MultiStreamer Brutus I IP/IP
    Designed for Telco TV, IPTV, cable TV, A/V systems, or university and entertainment systems, the MultiStreamer Brutus I IP/IP is a broadcast quality, 1-10 dual 8 core (Intel Xeon E5-2690) CPU blade based real time, multi definition, multichannel IP transcoder and/or streamer. Each of the up to ten Brutus modules transcodes up to 10 1080i/p HD streams, 20 720p HD streams, or 40 SD streams from MPEG-2 to H.264, or vice-versa. That’s 100 1080i/p HD streams, or 200 720p HD streams, or 400 SD streams, in a 4 RU rack space. And while some competitors’ systems transcode only SD or HD, DVEO builds one machine that does any resolution.

    The system is also available in a two blade 1 RU system that transcodes up to 20 1080i/p HD streams, 40 720p HD streams, or 80 SD streams – the MultiStreamer Brutus III IP/IP.

    2. Multichannel HLS Server – Infinity Streamer (mini) .5T/50ch
    A media playout server for stored content, the Infinity Streamer streams multiple HLS video files, plus audio files, from the on board .5 terabyte hard drive, with scheduled playlists. With SSD, the system can output up to 50 IP streams at the same time, with different bit rates and wrappers for each stream. The input of the stored content typically arrives via FTP file transfer, and the files to be played are stored on the server. Input can be individual files or multiple files. Numerous file types are supported, including H.264 ts, flv, H.264 ps, .mov, VC-1 (.wmv), mkv, and others. The Infinity Streamer adds various “Wrappers” such as HLS, RTMP, RTSP, etc. It also supports loopable playback. The system is ideal for web sites, classroom use, or corporate channels.

    3. On Air Graphics System for Ads, News Crawls, and Logos – Ad Serter IP/ASI/SDI
    DVEO’s broadcast quality branding and ad insertion system, the Ad Serter IP/ASI/SDI, enables broadcasters, Telco TV, IPTV, and cable operators to “brand” their video content with images that are not that easily removed. Operators can increase revenue by inserting graphical local ads in existing content. They can also add sidebars and scrolling text for crawling messages, weather bulletins, and emergency alerts. The Ad Serter inserts images and text anywhere on SD live streams with any degree of transparency. (Optional HD plus SD versions are available.) Three versions are available – IP input and output, DVB-ASI input and output, or SDI input and output. Graphics, logos, and text can be static, blinking, or rotating. And in case of video input failure, the Ad Serter can mask the entire screen with a static image. DVEO can also create customized systems to meet customers’ needs.

    4. Compact SDI/HD-SDI to IP Live Streaming Appliance – MultiStreamer DIG/IP (micro)
    The MultiStreamer DIG/IP (micro) is DVEO’s latest – and smallest – addition to the MultiStreamer product family of real time streaming appliances that deliver content to iPads, laptops, OTT televisions, and mobile devices via IP. It accepts uncompressed SDI or HD-SDI video (or optional HDMI or analog) from cameras, editing systems, or video servers, and supports simultaneous IP input. The micro creates multiple simultaneous high, medium, and low bitrate IP streams with wrappers such as HLS, RTMP, RTSP, etc. The Linux® based system encodes up to two 1080i/p streams, or one 1080 i/p and one 720p HD stream, at 6 Mbps; or six SD streams at 2 Mbps. The micro weighs just five pounds – 2.27 kilograms – and is only 9.8 inches/25 centimeters long.

    5. IP to SDI/HD-SDI Video and Audio Decoder – D-Streamer IP/DIG
    The D-Streamer IP/DIG is a real time H.264 or MPEG-2 decoder that receives IP transport streams and decodes them to SDI or HD-SDI, or optional HDMI. It accepts a wide variety of IP protocols, wrappers, and containers but is highly tuned for HLS and RTSP. Broadcasters and content providers can use DVEO’s MultiStreamer DIG/IP to encode SDI or HD-SDI to H.264 IP, then decode the streams with the D-Streamer IP/DIG. The D-Streamer IP/DIG is available in two versions – single channel input, or 4-12 channel input. The system is ideal for receiving and professionally decoding “poor looking” video from IP cameras, remote sites, content delivery networks (CDNs), or IPTV compatible appliances or players.

    6. Portable, Multifunction, Streaming Production System Flypack – MultiStreamer Flypack
    A portable video production and streaming unit in a rolling rackmount TSA certified case, the MultiStreamer Flypack allows any production company or streaming service provider to pack up and go to any event anywhere in the world. It includes an integrated MultiStreamer audio/video streaming encoder, compact seamless video switcher with effects generator, plus preview and program monitors. The Flypack can be customized to include DVEO’s Xaris™ playout server, Ad Serter, DelayServer/IP, and/or the new Infinity Streamer VOD server. Inputs from a camera or other system are multiple HD-SDI and HDMI, or DVI. The unit is available in 4RU, 6RU, or 8RU rolling rack cases, plus optional Shockmount versions up to 12 RU. The MultiStreamer Flypack is ideal for live productions and events like concerts, electronic news gathering (ENG), educational webcasts, political campaigns, and more.

    7. IP Time Delay for 40+ Transport Streams, for IPTV Cloud Based Time Shifting – DelayServer IP
    The DelayServer IP is a stand alone IP to IP delaying file server that re-streams 40+ MPEG-2 or H.264 IP transport streams and plays them back after a delay that is finely adjustable from seconds to hours. Capture and playback can be simultaneous on multiple streams. Users can adjust the delay times “on the fly”, as the system is recording and/or playing out. The standard unit ships with a .25 terabyte Intel® high end SSD. Product options include additional storage capacity, and unicast to multicast conversion.

    “We are excited to be exhibiting at TelcoTV and Streaming Media West,” said Laszlo Zoltan, Sales Manager for DVEO. “Both shows are important venues for showing customers our leading edge products for streaming, transcoding, encoding, ad insertion, and more.”
