Aviwest, a provider of hybrid video contribution systems, will demonstrate the latest enhancements to its Digital Mobile News Gathering (DMNG) system, with a focus on hybrid video contribution and distribution via the cloud. Its advanced live video contribution platform enables broadcasters to capture and broadcast live 4K, HD, or SD video over multiple unmanaged IP networks, including bonded 4G/3G cellular, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and satellite links.
At Broadcast Asia 2016, Aviwest will showcase the DMNG laptop that combines an H.264/AVC and H.265/HEVC encoder in an Apple MacBook Pro to enable high-quality streaming. Using the DMNG Laptop, broadcasters can receive video content from a wide range of video sources, including webcams and external SDI/HDMI cameras.
The laptop application features an intuitive GUI that makes it easy to manage various content delivery profiles (e.g., BGAN, cellular, ADSL, etc.), providing support for a variety of broadcast applications, 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 (e.g. 4G, 3G, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, satellite), the DMNG Laptop enables broadcasters to take advantage of every IP network in their immediate area as they become available.
Aviwest will also display two major evolutions of the DMNG Manager: video grid and statistics capabilities. The DMNG Manager application enables broadcasters and video professionals to monitor and manage an entire fleet of DMNG equipment, providing them with a video thumbnail of each feed coming from the field units or from any standard IP video sources. When arranged in a grid-view, these thumbnails ease system resource allocation by helping operators route the video streams to one or multiple receiver outputs or CDNs, with simple drag and drop.
Additionally, a new statistics feature for the DMNG Manager supplies broadcasters with essential information such as SIM card consumption and bandwidth statistics.
