Bannister Lake Integrates MPEG-DASH Into Chameleon Data

Support for DASH extends Bannister Lake’s reach to OTT operators and to broadcasters looking to launch streaming services.

The MPEG dynamic adaptive streaming over HTTP (DASH) video content is now supported through Bannister Lake’s flagship Chameleon data management product. DASH playback is supported in the Chameleon Web Server and is integrated as a media material within design tool, Chameleon Designer. Utilizing Chameleon Designer, users can build graphic templates that incorporate multiple real-time and static data sources.

“The combination of DASH and Chameleon helps ensure that OTT operators can take full advantage of the streaming standard's ability to adapt to changing network conditions while providing superior quality playback and simultaneously displaying timely, real-time data content,” explains Georg Hentsch, president, Bannister Lake. “As the broadcast industry moves toward streaming and new distribution models that include multiple devices, the incorporation of the DASH streaming protocol into television technology solutions has become an industry priority. DASH has quickly become a favored international standard and is widely supported on virtually all platforms.”

He adds, “With the inclusion of DASH, Chameleon can support multiple concurrent streams of live or pre-recorded content, allowing OTT operators to switch between different streams. This feature provides enormous flexibility for media organizations to quickly and affordably launch multiple national, regional, and localized versions of streamed services.”
