NativeWaves Teams With DekTec To Create FFmpeg Support For DekTec Cards

Close collaboration between Austrian solutions provider NativeWaves and DekTec, a supplier of PC add-on cards, has resulted in product improvements that are benefitting both companies.

NativeWaves spent more than a year searching for a replacement SDI capture card when the cards it was using failed to meet its high standards for audio quality. The search eventually led to Netherlands-based DekTec, who were able to adapt their line of existing SDI cards to suit NativeWaves’ requirements.

DekTec, a company with more than 20 years’ experience of designing PC interface adapters for the professional digital television market, solved the problem by adding FFmpeg support to its SDI PCIe cards.

NativeWaves will be showcasing NativeWaves EXP at IBC 2022. Powered by a dedicated low latency streaming platform, coupled with a highly customizable experience framework, this exciting product enhances today’s standard broadcast and streaming experience by giving audiences the chance to explore a wealth of additional content. Viewers can choose an enhanced event-centric experience on smartphone, tablet or mirrored to the TV, offering additional camera angles, audio tracks, instant replays, social media integration etc. including full on-screen navigation. In addition, NativeWaves EXP can be used and configured as a second screen experience that complements the main TV screen by offering additional personalized content and data on the mobile screen – all perfectly synchronized to the main screen via the audio.
