Aviwest, a provider of live video contribution and primary distribution systems over bonded cellular and unmanaged IP networks, is exhibiting at IBC 2017 in Amsterdam to showcase the latest developments for its digital mobile newsgathering ecosystem. A key highlight at IBC will be the transition to the HEVC video compression standard. The company’s live IP video solutions support HEVC, allowing broadcasters to deliver superior video quality at lower bit rates. Aviwest will showcase AIR300 and AIR320, the two first products in its AIR series of high-end, powerful, and ultra-lightweight video uplink systems. Integrating best-in-class H.265/HEVC hardware encoders, the series enables HD and SD encoding. Also on display will be the company’s HE4000 4K UHD HEVC live encoder that is ideal for real-time delivery of live UHD or HD content over unmanaged IP networks. The compact, half 1-RU encoder combines 10-bit and 4:2:2 HEVC encoding with the latest generation of SafeStreams technology for delivery of live video content over IP at low latencies and bit rates. The HE4000 will be demonstrated with the latest version of the StreamHub transceiver and decoder platform, offering integrated 4K UHD HEVC recording and decoding functions.
