WEGENER iPump Media Server

Publish date:

Wegener Corporation has announced that the new WEGENER iPump® 562 media server will be officially launched at the National Association of Broadcasters 2008 Convention (Booth #SU7911) April 14-17, 2008, in Las Vegas.

Designed for digital signage, corporate communications and education applications, WEGENER’s iPump 562 media server supports bandwidth-saving features, such as MPEG-4/h.264 video compression, file-based workflows and DVB-S2 satellite demodulation. These features facilitate the creation of customized, high quality high definition (HD) and standard definition (SD) video channels for enterprise video projects.

WEGENER’s new iPump 562 media server is part of WEGENER’s end-to-end control and playout solution that provides a cost-effective approach to supporting any multi-site enterprise video project with high levels of customization per television screen. The complete solution includes WEGENER’s iPump Media Servers, IP-based peripheral decoders and Compel® network control system for live or file-based broadcasting.

With Compel, unique programming content can be targeted to reach individual retail stores, departments, schools, or hospitals, and can be rapidly updated by central network operators. Employees at display locations do not have to manage or interact with the media servers because all functions and upgrades are scheduled and managed remotely from the Compel network control system at the central operations center. WEGENER iPump video decoders are optimized for high quality video and on-screen graphics, providing a superior viewing experience compared to PC solutions.

The iPump 562 expands the iPump product line to target enterprise and digital signage solutions where cost is a major factor. This new product utilizes the bandwidth savings from DVB-S2 and MPEG-4 to expand the range of applications where satellite networks can be profitably employed.
