(San Diego, California--March 17, 2014) DVEO, the broadcast division of Computer Modules, Inc. (CMI), is now shipping the second generation version of its innovative technology for smooth distribution of IP video over poor or average quality public Internet.
Designed for broadcasters, mobile operators, telcos, IPTV operators, and Over The Top (OTT) video providers, DVEO's proprietary "DOZER" technology smoothes video traffic and recovers dropped packets. It features built-in algorithms to alleviate video freezes, jitter, and noise. New features for the latest version include more powerful performance, quicker set-up, and 50 or more channels out.
DVEO will demonstrate "DOZER" at the NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) Show, April 7-10, in Las Vegas, Nevada, at booth SU2903.
The DOZERbox II IP IP™ is a compact (4.6 inches wide) multifunction end-to-end router for reliable and timely delivery of MPEG-2 or H.264 transport streams. It "bulldozes" through slow and congested IP routers to improve video distribution. The technology is also available as a software license -- the Media Dozer: LIC™, or in a 1 RU system -- the DOZER Racks IP IP™.
Typically sold in pairs, the DOZERbox and DOZER Racks gateways replace expensive private point to point internet managed network connections. Customers can purchase the Media Dozer: LIC application software as an add-on for DVEO's many encoder and gateway appliances, including the Mamba DIG/IP™, MultiStreamer™, MPEG Gearbox™, MultiStreamer Brutus™, MPEG Gearbox II™, and D-Streamer™ product lines. It is also available as a license for other devices.
"Media Dozer functions similarly to Forward Error Correction, but works at packets layer instead bytes layer. Our customers use this technology to deliver critical video over congested and noisy cloud based deployments," stated Laszlo Zoltan, Vice President of DVEO. "With our latest upgrades, one DOZERbox transmitter can send 50 or more channels to one DOZERbox receiver. And each receiver can accept transmissions from up to 8 different Dozer transmitter devices. An added advantage is that all content is encrypted."
When Media Dozer II: LIC is added to DVEO systems such as the MultiStreamer™ encoder or MPEG Gearbox II™ transcoder, the original content can be encoded or transcoded before it is processed by the Media Dozer II: LIC.
Media Dozer II: LIC can also be added to DVEO's Proxicaster IP IP™, a stream packager that converts UDP or RTP to multicast, adds wrappers such as HLS or RTMP, and redirects video streams to multiple locations. This new combination product is sold as the Proxi DOZER™.
"Our Media Dozer II: LIC is licensable for use by CDN's, OEMS, and middleware vendors," Laszlo Zoltan went on to say. "We are actively negotiating with several encoder and CDN vendors."
For optimum video streaming, when video will be transmitted and received from the same location, two separate systems are recommended for transmitting and receiving.
