DUNE HD AND DVEO SHOW LIVE STREAMING OF HEVC CONTENT FROM CAMERA TO TV THROUGH THE DUNE HD TV-204 SET-TOP BOX
NAB Demo is First to Live Stream HEVC Content from Recording to Encoding to the Set-top Box, Featuring the Gearbox II from DVEO and TV-204 STB from Dune HD
LAS VEGAS, NV, APRIL 10, 2014 – As HEVC develops as an industry standard codec for video delivery, Dune HD and DVEO are demonstrating the power of the new format with the first open, end-to-end solution using the Gearbox II multi-format encoder from DVEO and the TV-204 advanced set-top box from Dune HD. The products are being shown at NAB in the Dune HD and DVEO booths, South Hall Upper, 10713 and 2903, respectively.
While other products offer proprietary HEVC streaming and delivery solutions, Dune HD and DVEO show the power and flexibility of their respective set-top box and transcoder to unleash the latest high-efficiency codec to IPTV, OTT and VOD providers.
Both the Dune HD TV-204 and DVEO Gearbox II are known for flexibility and for being full-featured devices used by a range of IPTV and OTT providers around the world, in large broadcast environments, hotels, airports, pay TV services and more. The TV-204 is the first full-featured set-top box to support HEVC encoded content up to Full HD, including nearly all popular streaming formats, containers, technologies and multiple middleware options, with samples available in April-May and mass production beginning in June-July 2014.
DVEO is a rapidly growing player in the video and audio streaming industry and its Gearbox II is a real-time multichannel streamer, integrated RF receiver, and multi-format encoder/transcoder. The 64-bit build is fully compatible with the Dune HD TV-204 for streaming live HEVC content, and is fully scalable, easily adaptable, and field upgradeable to meet the needs of pay TV service providers, IP network operators and live event producers.
Konstantin Dyshlevoy, CEO of Dune HD said, “This demo is the first opportunity for operators to see live streaming of HEVC content from end-to-end, and our combined technologies integrate easily to create the solution.” Scott Grizzle, DVEO Business Development Manager, added, “Our live end-to-end HEVC/H.265 solution using a pure open platform with Dune HD gives our customers a chance to future-proof for long-term deployments. Worldwide, our customers are looking forward to the bandwidth savings offered by HEVC.”
