ViXS' XCode integrated circuit (IC) can adjust the bit-rates, resolutions and formats of multiple MPEG video streams in real time, adapting each stream to changing network bandwidth.
It also enables providers to deliver video on demand in a simple manner, without inundating their networks with virtual circuits, or investing in separate routers or switches to handle video streams.
Initial NT-Based Video On Demand Offering Sends Up To 7,200 Concurrent Video Streams
DVQattest/EN comprises a powerful software agent that can generate 200 concurrent VoIP streams, 20 concurrent high definition 1080p simulated IP video streams and a range of network diagnostic tests, with an intuitive interactive application for configuration and reporting.
The RGB Simulcast Edge Processor is the cable industry's first complete solution for digital simulcast edge decoding applications, providing the capability to simultaneously receive multiple MPEG-2 digital video streams over Internet Protocol (IP), decode the video streams, modulate and up-convert them, and deliver the streams directly to subscribers as NTSC analog video at the edge of the network.
Akamai has historically held an 8% - 12% share of video streams served via individual contracts, but is often chosen as part of multi-vendor deals with CDNs such as Limelight and Vitalstream.
11) solutions have largely satisfied the need for medium bandwidth data communications, the latest challenge is to address the needs of in-home audio/video entertainment connectivity with the right bandwidth and affordability to handle high-definition video streams.
11) solutions have largely satisfied the need for medium bandwidth data communications, the latest challenge is to address the needs of in-home audio/video entertainment connectivity with enough bandwidth to handle high-definition video streams while remaining affordable.
In addition, the technology needed to be scaleable, with the potential to grow from two video streams to 200 video streams for future regional system expansion.
VQmon/SA-VM is a highly efficient, fast and compact software agent that monitors IP based video streams in real-time, measures the time distribution of lost and discarded packets using a multi-state statistical model, examines the type of codec, bit rate and other factors and uses a perceptual model to calculate transmission quality and perceptual quality metrics.
