KenCast Intros EdgeSpan Lite, a New Content Delivery Solution

The new EdgeSpan Lite solution was created from enterprise customers’ requests for a compact solution to reliably delivering digital content to multiple locations.

KenCast introduced its newest product, the EdgeSpan Lite, at IBC in Amsterdam. EdgeSpan Lite can decode video and stream directly to tablets. It also includes an electronic program guide, so clients can easily display video content.

EdgeSpan Lite uses KenCast’s Fazzt Digital Delivery Software, which guarantees reliable and secure content delivery.

It has live high definition video decoding capabilities, DVR capability with 84 GB of content storage, and the ability to remotely manage individual sites from corporate headquarters and initiate recording of specific content. EdgeSpan Lite is designed for retail and other enterprises delivering large files and live events to multiple locations.

EdgeSpan Lite is based on the KenCast EdgeSpan EventPlay. EdgeSpan EventPlay is an integrated receiver and decoder (IRD) with on-board storage that is capable of receiving both live events as well as DCP content. It decodes AVC and MPEG-2 content up to 2K @60 frames per second to provide a cost effective option for exhibitors to support alternative content up to 2K resolutions. It also provides functionality to receive DCPs and is targeted for theaters whose requirements do not mandate the use of a KenCast CinemaPro appliance with extended storage capabilities.

The EdgeSpan EventPlay integrates into the KenCast cinema workflow where live events are centrally booked and managed. It also lends much of the DCP functionality of the CinemaPro appliance that is currently deployed in over 4,000 locations worldwide for the digital distribution of Hollywood movies to theaters. The EventPlay supports multiple modes of management including local web administration, KenCast centralized live event management, and LCD control panel.
