Visionary Solutions Launches PackeTV(R) Mobile Streaming Media Delivery Platform

Utilizing PackeTV(R) Mobile, Content Operators Can Efficiently Deliver High-Quality Live and Prerecorded Streams to Mobile Devices

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — June 7, 2012 — Visionary Solutions, Inc. (VSI) today introduced PackeTV(R) Mobile, a sophisticated communication system that simplifies the delivery of live and file-based content, enabling content administrators to deploy IP video to any connected device seamlessly, including mobile phones, tablets, and set-top boxes. Built on an entirely server-based design, PackeTV Mobile can be cost-effectively deployed on any public or private network where HTTP access is allowed and scaled to provide superior-quality streaming video content to an unlimited number of users.

“Until now, HLS streaming was only available through a content delivery network, reducing the level of control a content administrator had over its video programing and distribution,” said Mike Piper, vice president of sales and marketing, Visionary Solutions. “Leveraging PackeTV Mobile, content administrators can more efficiently oversee HLS streaming to ensure an excellent video quality and efficient bandwidth allocation.”

Through an intuitive Web-based GUI, content administrators can easily deliver streaming media content to hundreds of clients from a single, powerful server. Alternatively, PackeTV Mobile can be deployed as a scalable onsite or cloud-hosted solution capable of reaching an unlimited number of clients via corporate or public network. By providing content in a variety of bit rates and screen sizes, PackeTV Mobile offers the best quality of experience for end users while distributing content efficiently over any wired, wireless, 3G, or 4G network. PackeTV Mobile’s standard Web-based infrastructure eliminates the need for a costly content delivery network in most cases. This reduces the content administrator’s capital and operating expenses dramatically.

PackeTV Mobile features an easily managed set-up and operation wizard that ensures effective administration of the content delivery process. Content is acquired from a variety of sources — including DVD or Blu-ray(TM) players, cameras, and prerecorded file-based programs — and encrypted to prevent unauthorized viewing if required.

Ideal for a broad range of markets, spanning the professional A/V, telecommunications, broadcast, corporate, government, education, and houses of worship, PackeTV Mobile supports standard and high-definition video and audio standards, including H.264 and MPEG-2 video, as well as AAC and MPEG audio, providing users with a high degree of flexibility. The powerful platform offers reliable transport stream storage, as well as HLS file storage and playback, optimizing a content manager’s streaming media workflow.

Software Giant SAS Installs Fourth Utah Scientific Routing Switcher as Part of Massive Campus Expansion

SALT LAKE CITY — June 7, 2012 — Utah Scientific, the worldwide leader in routing and master control switchers, today announced that business analytics and software giant SAS has outfitted its award-winning new Executive Briefing Center on its 900-acre Cary, N.C. campus with a Utah Scientific digital routing switcher. SAS’ extensive in-house media operation, which already uses Utah Scientific gear for routing and master control, nearly doubled in size with the addition of the Executive Briefing Center. SAS will use its newest routing switcher in the Executive Briefing Center building to connect it to Campus Master Control in another building.

“We had ambitious goals for the Executive Briefing Center in terms of routing and master control. We chose Utah Scientific because we wanted a solution we knew would work,” said Woody Weaver, SAS engineering and operations manager. “We were looking for a fiber routing system centered on 1080i using HD-SDI, with the ability to mix fiber and copper inputs/outputs. We also sought a broadcast-quality router that we could control using our existing soft- and hard-panel controllers from either the Executive Briefing Center or Campus Master Control. And we wanted it to work with the Utah Scientific equipment we already had.”

SAS installed a Utah Scientific UTAH-400/288R routing switcher in the Executive Briefing Center for in-building master control, and connected it via fiber to the existing Utah Scientific campus master control system in another building. The switcher’s input/output options exceed the requirements of 1080i, and its I/O cards are 3G-SDI video-capable, giving SAS the ability to route video resolutions higher than 1080i in the future. The router provides options for single-mode fiber I/O cards to allow routing from building to building. Another key feature is the ability to route both fiber and copper feeds as needed, meaning SAS is not limited to one or the other. SAS’ existing Utah Scientific SC-4 control system allows the soft panels loaded on SAS computers to control the Utah Scientific equipment in both buildings.

The Executive Briefing Center hosts events in Building C and its equipment connects to the existing Utah Scientific routing system in Building V Master Control via campus fiber when needed for video editing, distribution, etc.

“We’ve been working with Woody and his team at SAS for years to help ensure their demanding operation always runs smoothly,” said Tom Harmon, president and CEO of Utah Scientific. “When they expanded, we were able to provide a solution that works in conjunction with what they already had in place. Now they’ve got a combination of Utah Scientific equipment that connects seamlessly so that Campus Master Control can take over whenever necessary.”
