Media technology company MediaKind has launched its next-generation broadcast solution Aquila Broadcast which promises to enable broadcasters and operators in making a seamless, step-by-step transition from appliance-based platforms to all-IP media delivery.
Powered by software-based video compression, control and stream processing, Aquila Broadcast looks to deliver industry-leading picture quality with resolutions up to UHD with HDR support, while also offering wide codec support and significant bandwidth savings.
Aquila Broadcast hopes to ensure compatibility across all-IP technologies and standards, increased transponder density whilst retaining video quality and deployable as an appliance or as pure software, with the ability to support on-premise and cloud-based implementations.
Deployable as an appliance or software-only, either on-premises or in the cloud, Aquila Broadcast supports the MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC and HEVC video codecs.
To enable picture quality and bandwidth savings with an extensive appliance, software and cloud support system, Aquila Broadcast combines a number of MediaKind consumer delivery products, including Encoding Live, Stream Processor and nCompass control.
