The DVEO Brutus product portfolio features Linux® based telco quality transcoders that deliver outstanding video quality and performance. The systems are ideal for simple transcoding or grooming at headends for OTT, mobile, and Telco TV multiscreen services.
The enterprise class Brutus VI IP/IP: TELCO is an adaptive optimized transcoder. Typical real time H.264 transcodes benchmarks include 240 SD streams, or 90 each 720p60 streams, or 60 each 1080p/i streams… all in a 1 RU rack space. Other systems in the Brutus transcoder family serve anywhere from 20 to 200 SD streams out. Resulting streams can be viewed with standard transport stream compatible set-top boxes, streaming video, smart phones, or software clients such as VLC or JW Player. With the optional ATLAS add-on, the systems support 1,000 RTMP, DASH, and/or HLS users natively.
Input or output formats can be MPEG-2, H.264, optional H.265, or a mixture, with most popular wrappers and containers. The Brutus systems support Flash, HLS, RTMP, HTTP, and Live Streaming and work well with Atlas™, Wowza®, and Adobe® Flash® servers. They are ideal devices for creating low, medium, and high bit rate streams inside ISP’s and CDN’s. Brutuses can also sit in the cloud as cloud re-encoders to generate adaptive multirate streams from inexpensive original encoders.
Audio support includes AAC, Embedded pass-through, MPEG-1 Layer II, optional MP3, and/or optional “SurCode for Dolby Digital” AC-3. Transcoding bit rates are .1 to 15 Mbps with 4:2:0 or optional 4:2:2.
The systems support IP content protection with rotating key servers like Verimatrix® VCAS™, Widevine, etc. via OPT. They also support logo insertion, text overlay, and SCTE 35 compliant cue tone insertion (“ad markers”) on outputs.
Other useful features include closed captioning support, redundant power supplies, and PID filtering of all unwanted traffic.
