GRENOBLE, France, September 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

At IBC 2013, Allegro DVT confirms its status as a relentless innovator, and enhances its high density live multiscreen transcoder AL2400 with new features.

Among these improvements, stand:

  • New video encoding optimizations, specifically designed to improve video quality on OTT TV.
  • DVB-Subtitle burn-in as well as support of WebVTT and advanced Closed Captioning, which is a top priority for our Scandinavian customers.
  • Support of FEC (Forward Error Correction, SMPTE-2022) for MPEG-TS/RTP/IP inputs, of high importance when delivering sources to the transcoder over unmanaged networks.
  • Enhanced network management which intuitive IP routes, VLAN and VPN management to deploy over heterogeneous infrastructures.

This overall confirms AL2400 as the most technically integrated multiscreen headend-in-a-box, as it embeds in one transcoding module (6 slots for 48 OTT services per 1RU chassis): a hardware accelerated H.264 transcoder, a multiscreen packager and scrambler, as well as an origin server. This basically results in simplified management, and lower investment for broadcasters.

Consolidating recent successes, Allegro DVT also committed to upgrading its multiviewer appliance for live EPG and headend monitoring, to support 20 live full HD inputs, in conjunction with still image sources and moving clips inputs. This brings a whole new dimension to EPG applications, and makes ALMosaic responsible for a part of the chain often requiring custom integration.

Allegro DVT's product line for HEVC encoding must also be mentioned, which consists in AL3200 File base encoder for 4K VOD, and AL1200 Live HD HEVC encoder for new generation multiscreen. Allegro DVT is exhibiting at IBC 2013 on booth 1.A46, so take this opportunity to come have a closer look at our products!
