​Aviwest Launches DMNG Laptop for ENG

Aviwest launched DMNG Laptop, a news gathering application compatible with Apple MacBook Pro, at the 2016 NAB show. By integrating an H.264/AVC and H.265/HEVC encoder into a MacBook Pro, the DMNG Laptop reduces the amount of equipment required for newsgathering and enabling video streaming.

"Broadcasters today need to minimise the amount of equipment they're carrying in the field and encode video in a way that enables crystal-clear streaming, without any latency," said Erwan Gasc, CEO. "Our new DMNG Laptop application resolves these common challenges, allowing broadcasters to stay ahead of the competition by getting live videos and recordings on-air quicker than ever, with better video quality."

With the laptop, broadcasters can receive video content from a wide range of video sources, including the built-in camera and external SDI/HDMI cameras. From the DMNG Laptop GUI users can manage various content delivery profiles, providing support for a variety of broadcast use cases, including live streaming, file transfer via various networks (e.g., wireless, cellular, satellite, LAN/WAN, public internet), and storage.

By detecting and bonding together multiple IP network interfaces, the DMNG Laptop enables users to take advantage of every IP network in their immediate area as they become available. Aviwest SafeStreams technology assures the delivery of live transmissions even in the midst of unpredictable cellular network conditions. This allows mobile journalists to stream high-quality video over unmanaged networks with minimum delay.

Integrated with the company's DMNG Manager and DMNG StreamHub receiver, decoder, and distribution platform, the DMNG Laptop “transforms the way that journalists conduct live interviews, enabling flawless HEVC encoding and high-quality video delivery,” added Gasc.
