​igolgi Upgrades iLux ATSC 3.0 Encoder

The igolgi iLux ATSC 3.0 NextGen encoder has been upgraded to include a “streamlined standard feature set” and additional user-requested configurations.

The company has developed a GPU/CPU-based platform running in-house developed algorithms designed specifically for ATSC 3.0 encoding.

“We talked to many customers and came up with a design and implementation that makes ATSC-3 encoding very straightforward,” said Paul Dadien, vp of broadcast sales & operations. “igolgi are experts in all forms of compression and encoding, so our system is truly fast with exceptional resolution at any bitrate. It’s a unique combination of powerful performance, easy set-up and high reliability.”

The new platform supports up to two 4K, eight HD, or 25 SD video and audio streams to be compressed, packaged, integrated with other signaling and metadata information, and encapsulated into the STLTP protocol for delivery to a single or multiple SFN transmitters. For flexibility, igolgi offers two standard configurations with integrated or split architecture – encoder, signaling server, and broadcast gateway together, or encoder with DASH output, signaling server and broadcast gateway in a remote location.

Additional features which are now standard include: COTS hardware running Linux; input options including IP, ASI or SD/HD-SDI/3G-SDI and output options: IP Unicast/multicast or encoder DASH.

It can aggregate up to 20 live and NRT streams for ATSC 3.0 delivery and features encapsulated ROUTE and MMTP streams into STLTP broadcast gateway.
