The NAB Show 2019 will mark the first event for LTN Global following the company's acquisition of Niles Media Group catering to media content creation and TV remote production. LTN Global will showcase the LTN Network — the company's global IP transmission solution, and how it facilitates the delivery of broadcast-quality traffic in real time. The company also will unveil enhancements to the LTN LEAF solution for transmitting or receiving low-latency live video.
LTN LEAF Integrated Encode/Decode Appliance now comes with HEVC and 1080p60 support. Available in a variety of encoder/decoder configurations, the integrated appliance leverages LTN's ultra-low-latency (less than 200 milliseconds) live video transport with reliability and quality. It brings greater bandwidth efficiency and value to applications including esports broadcast and digital offerings, with linear and digital distribution.
LTN LEAF produces high-quality MPEG4/H.264 encoding for fast-motion sports and complex tape playout content at bit rates up to 20 Mbps, and supports both: point-to-point and point-to-multipoint global transmission. It supports news distribution, enabling access to video from hundreds of sites across a mesh network. LEAF's very low-latency encode mode facilitates interactive interviews and live shots with lower end-to-end latency (SDI to SDI) than satellite.
"LTN Global technologies and services empower users to leverage IP networks for more cost-effective delivery of low-latency, broadcast-quality live video. We will also highlight the simplicity and power of our LTN LEAF integrated encode/decode appliance, which has capabilities to boost efficiency and video quality for transmission in a variety of demanding use cases," said Malik Khan, co-founder and executive chairman, LTN.
