Starfish Provides Support For Linux OS

Starfish Technologies’ Transport Stream processing products, including the TS Splicer, are now available running on a Linux operating system in addition to Windows.

Starfish Marketing Director Peter Blatchford said, “Our market leading TS processing products have always offered major benefits to users as a result of the patented technology we incorporate. We have been refining our software even further in recent years to offer additional features and increased efficiency to allow even more processing channels to be installed on a generic server platform. Customers will now have the option to run the same application on either Linux or Windows operating systems, giving them even greater flexibility. The Linux implementation is particularly important to the telecoms marketplace where it is currently the de facto operating system in use.”

The TS Splicer, a software-based solution for clean switching of encoded Transport Streams, supports MPEG2, H.264 and HEVC/H.265 encoded media and is used for media switching and content replacement for advertising insertion and slating. It now also supports SMPTE 2022-7, providing seamless input protection of redundant source signals.
