DVEO Debuts Multiscreen VOD File Encoder at IBC 2017

DVEO, a privately held vendor of multiscreen video processing products, is showing its file encoder for HLS VOD (Video on Demand) at IBC 2017 in Amsterdam.

Designed for Telcos or any operators deploying IPTV and OTT, the product called Quick Segmenter: VOD Files, grooms content for streaming to iPads, iPhones, to CDNs (Content Delivery Networks) or packaging servers for ABR VOD (Adaptive Bit Rate Video on Demand) distribution.

Based in San Diego, California, DVEO claimed that the product encodes video files in about one-fifth the actual playing time. "The Quick Segmenter: VOD Files is designed to prepare content for VOD on multiple devices," said Laszlo Zoltan, Vice President of DVEO. "We go straight from a master or mezzanine file to multiple encoded segment files for use by a variety of devices. The Linux based system automatically pushes HLS playlists and segments to CDNs or any media server for VOD distribution via HLS Webdav or with File Transfer."

Zoltan recommended DVEO’s new accelerated file transfer solution called the Faster File: Secure AFT with RIFT, for transferring content to or from the file encoder. “It enables operators to reliably and securely deliver large files over wired or wireless internet."

Operators can upload transport stream files of any type. A watch folder looks for new files not already encoded and then encodes them automatically to HLS, in several preconfigured bitrates and resolutions. The system also supports logo insertion, text overlay, and SCTE 35 compliant cue tone insertion ("ad markers") on the HLS outputs. The firm promised support for DASH outputs soon.
