“BRINGS LOW COST TO J2K TO HLS CONVERSION”
San Diego, California — DVEO®, a leading TV/OTT equipment supplier, announces the release of a cost effective solution to organizations who wish to transcode J2K to HLS. J2K is one of the Mezzanine encoders and is used in sports and Special Events.
Alteon uses the nVIDIA Accelerator technology to transcode raw video footage to a high quality HLS video format. The Alteon J2K to H.264 is designed to provide lower cost H.264 based HLS or plain transport streams to the sports and special event streaming market, and has adopted J2K for origin encoding. Alteon is a hybrid solution that relies on both nVidia CPU and our own mature control interface. We support ASPEN and VSF TR-01 specifications and can transcode 28 J2K inputs into single or multiple H.264 or H.265 profiles. The benefits of adapting to JPEG 2000 for event capture and HLS are significant. For example, JPEG 2000 offers very low latency, which is vital for remote viewing live. It also supports lossless (bit-preserving) and lossy compression within a single codestream, while providing transparency preservation in images. JPEG 2000 enables the viewer to see the content at a lower resolution before actually downloading the entire file fully. As more data bits are downloaded from the source the quality becomes significantly better, this is made possible because it supports progressive decoding. Furthermore this technology is perfect for editing content applications with its ability for the video signal to be cut at any place without any issues. HLS format is a delivery option that ties this all in together by providing a pathway to effortlessly deliver video and audio streams to CDN’s who now prefer HLS injest. This enables every viewer to experience the finest quality stream based on the internet connection.
“This product is going to revolutionize the way the high end sporting events distribute their videos. The Alteon 2-28 CH J2K is an affordable platform designed to provide sporting officials with the ability to gain a high quality video capture and store these games for future reference. They will have ability to put it into a vault and stream it to an ordinary video format, stated Laszlo Zoltan,” CEO of DVEO.
DVEO Alteon 2-28 CH™ is compatible to work on many platforms such as Ustream® and Livestream® to enable multi camera streaming. It produces high quality video with very little delay or latency. Its main feature is its support of lossless encoding at very high bit rates and its ability to be edited at any boundary since every frame is a reference frame. Among its best known adopters is the Digital Cinema industry who relish the fact that every frame can be encrypted independently of other frames and it also supports High Dynamic Range.
