Digital Rapids is bringing its range of solutions for transforming and distributing media to IBC 2010.

Its complete solutions portfolio will be featured at their main stand, number 7.G41, with select demonstrations also featured at stand IP341 in the IPTV Zone. Digital Rapids will also be offering free educational sessions in the IBC Training Zone, and again powering the encoding of content for the IBC TV News website and mobile delivery.

Featured solutions will include:

Flux Capture and Pre-Processing Cards

The new Flux family of video capture and pre-processing hardware will make its IBC debut. Flux HD boards are the first cards optimized for encoding and streaming to feature dual-link and 3G-SDI input support. The Flux hardware builds on the advanced video processing technology that has earned our solutions their reputation for industry-leading encoding quality. Working in conjunction with the Digital Rapids Stream software, Flux cards enable real-time, multi-format media capture, encoding and streaming for applications including post production, Internet TV, IPTV, VOD, mobile video, archive and more.

Live Adaptive Streaming Encoders

The high-performance StreamZHD Live ABR adaptive streaming encoder will also make its first IBC appearance. StreamZHD Live ABR encodes and streams live HD and SD content at unparalleled quality for delivery through the latest generation of adaptive streaming technologies including HTTP Dynamic Streaming for Adobe Flash Player; adaptive HTTP streaming to Apple iPhone and iPad; and Microsoft IIS Smooth Streaming. Adaptive bit rate delivery ensures that content consumers receive the highest quality viewing experience possible even under changing bandwidth and playback conditions. For multi-channel, enterprise-class deployments, multiple StreamZHD Live ABR encoders can be combined with the scalable Digital Rapids Broadcast Manager software for management, automation, scheduling, monitoring and failover. A new version of Broadcast Manager will be unveiled, with new features including automation for an expanded range of third-party video routers to manage incoming sources.
