Allegro DVT now applies its expertise on HEVC/H.265 encoding to the Genova Software Based Headend Suite, and performs on its booth at NAB 2013, demonstrations of Genova HEVC/H.265 Software Encoder for VOD. This new software based encoder permits HD 1080p60 encoding with 30% bitrate savings compared to best in class H.264 encoding.

Genova HEVC/H.265 Software Encoder, already shipping and available for production, is aligned with the final draft of the new compression standard HEVC/H.265, and is interoperable with a variety of software HEVC/H.265 decoders, which makes it the perfect framework for porting operator's VOD assets to HEVC/H.265 in 2013-2014.

  • ALMosaic, a classic for headend monitoring and set top box navigation applications.

This product turned out to be a masterstroke, as it is now, the densest and most integrated headend-in-a-box, comprising 48 OTT channels to all HTTP formats including HLS, MSS, MPEG-DASH, DRM support, autonomous redundancy, origin server and fragmentation in just a 1RU space.
  • ALFragmenter, for all headend and edge applications requiring multiscreen re-packaging, appliance based or virtualized.
