DVEO Intros New Ad Inserter, Server, Encoders, TS Analyzer and Packet Loss Eliminator

DVEO recently introduced a variety of new IP solutions aimed directly at TV, cable and OTT operators worldwide.

The DVEO AD SPOTTER is a new, targeted multi-stream dynamic ad insertion and delivery platform. The new multi-criteria advertising platform uses content and viewer information to make decisions about the actual ads played out to all viewers. It combines content type, consumer profile, and geolocation data by "mining" multiple databases in real time.

It can trigger "ad starts" via almost any mechanism. It supports analog cue tones or SCTE 35 triggers to insert commercial spots into Live or Stored transport streams -- plus IP messaging, scheduled, or manual triggering. Moreover, the AD SPOTTER can add advertisements that are inside, over, or around the video content via slices, overlays, crawl messages, alert bugs, and video "squeezes".

Server

The new Atlas Streaming Server I brings a convenient, affordable "turnkey" solution for those who want to transmit a video event in real time to a dispersed streaming-oriented community. It is a "ready to go" appliance that streams live events to up to 1,000 simultaneous users from any H.264 encoder or IP camera.

The system sends live adaptive bitrate video feeds to any device that supports HLS, MPEGDASH, Smooth or HDS/Flash. This includes all Apple, Android, and Chrome based devices. The Atlas Streaming Server I is also available with DVEO's patent-pending DOZER automated UDP packet recovery protocol. It comes with some factory support.

H.265 encoder

Gearbox265 is a dual channel 1080p H.265 HEVC streaming encoder with HLS support. It is designed for streaming HEVC compressed video to CDNs, servers, ISPs, and end users who need HLS or UDP transport streams for live or multiscreen content distribution. The Gearbox265 2Ch HD-SDI/IP features real time encoding of content from two cameras or video servers equipped with SDI, HDMI, or HD-SDI outputs. It outputs two HD or 20 SD H.265 transport streams with any resolution including 1080p, 720p, 576i, or 480i. Many decoders come with H.265 support that will enable 4K content distribution.

Packet loss eliminator

The DOZERbox IP/IP uses DVEO's acclaimed "DOZER" technology to "bulldoze" real time video through slow and congested IP routers.  It improves video distribution over public internet or so-so private lines using end-to-end error correcting protocol that delivers time critical video reliably over UDP, whether unicast or multicast. It uses patent-pending Automated Packet Recovery algorithms to alleviate video freezes, jitter, and noise.

The DOZERbox IP/IP is a compact (4.6 inches wide) multifunction end-to-end router for reliable and timely delivery of MPEG-2 or H.264 transport streams. The technology is also available as a software license – the DOZER APR: LIC, or in a 1RU system -- the DOZER Racks IP/IP.

TS Analyzer with 24/7 Monitoring

Q Check IP: Head End verifies the quality of digital video and audio services delivered over IP networks. It combines multi-window MPEG-2/H.264 transport stream monitoring, comprehensive ETR 290 analysis, error logging and alarms, and TS recording.

The system detects and logs errors such as video freezes, black screens, loss of video, audio, or subtitles. It supports audio alarms, SNMP, email alerts, etc. Ideal for head ends or teleports, the system is very scalable for 10, 20, 30, or 50+ services or network-wide monitoring. The Q Check IP: Head End is offered as a system or software license. Q Check ASI is the DVB-ASI version.
