Dozer Packet Error Corrector Comes To PC

​DVEO says its error correcting streaming transport protocol Dozer is now available as an application for Microsoft Windows .

Dozer is aimed at providing video operators with an improved video stream distribution over IP networks. It has been available for several years on many DVEO Linux- based products but was previously available only as a software development kit on the Windows. The new product, PC Dozer, is a low cost Windows application that installs on any pair of PCs and allows operators to continuously stream high quality video, even over long distances.

As an added feature, PC Dozer is one of the first-shipping applications to also support the new RIST (Reliable Internet Stream Transport) VSF TR-06-01 method as published by the Video Services Forum. RIST is an interoperable application for transmitting compressed H.264 and H.265 video over the public internet.

Laszlo Zoltan, CEO of DVEO, said, "Now we can ship an actual product so attendees can utilize RIST right away, as an alternative and another representation of ARQ (Automatic Repeat Request). I expect our software will be utilized by anyone who implements RIST brand ARQ because of its interoperability."

"Having been one of a committee who experienced the birth pangs of the important new RIST method," said Sergio Ammirata, CTO of DVEO, "and having contributed the free and open source code for what will undoubtedly be its most popular client, the VLC player application, I feel pride and joy in debuting and demonstrating this product at the show."
