AverMedia Launches HEVC Video Capture and Encoding System for OTT and IPTV

AverMedia, a Taiwanese maker of video processing products, has launched the AverCaster HEVC RS9260 pitched at OTT and IPTV operators for video capture, encoding and streaming. The device can broadcast live TV programs and 4K video over LAN and wireless networks with a range of encoding, bit rate and resolution options.

According to the company it enables operators to reach a large audience on computers and most 3G/4G mobile devices, such as tablets and smartphones, through its support for FlashApple HLS and 3GPP.

The RS9260 is a head-end device, incorporating a management webpage with remote monitoring functions for systems integrators, aiming to reduce operational costs for operators. It can send multiple output streams to various client devices, encoded from a single source, which can be a single 4K video or multi-screen streams of mixed formats. It supports the principle video and audio codecs, including HEVC, H.264 and MPEG-2, as well as H.263/AMR, AAC and AC3.

The RS9260 has a built-in 2U rack-mounted web-based server for remote control and management, based on the Intel Xeon E5-2690 V3 CPU with built-in dual redundant power supplies and Ethernet interfaces. It is compatible with leading CDNs including Akamai and Wowza.
