At IBC 2013, DVEO to Demonstrate "DOZER" IP Video Traffic Shaping Technology for Optimal Video Over Public Internet
DOZERbox IP IP System and Media Dozer: LIC Application Offer Reliable and Timely Delivery of UDP Video Traffic Over Poor or Average Quality Internet Connections
San Diego, California(06 Sep 2013)
DVEO, the broadcast division of Computer Modules, Inc. (CMI), will demonstrate their IP video traffic shaping technology at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam, September 13-17, at Stand 2.A34. The technology is available in a system as the DOZERbox IP IP, and as a software license -- the Media Dozer: LIC.
In most regions of the world, public internet infrastructure is not reliable and drops video packets. Public routers do not prioritize video traffic well enough. The DOZERbox and Media Dozer: LIC route video through the public internet in a unique way. They "bulldoze" through slow and congested routers and allow IPTV operators and Over The Top video providers to improve their video distribution -- by enabling smooth low delay, high definition, and adaptive video streaming.
The DOZERbox and Media Dozer: LIC offer dependable distribution of MPEG-2 or H.264 SPTS or MPTS transport streams over average quality internet backbones. Typically sold in pairs, the DOZERbox gateways are more cost effective than private point to point internet connections and stream through most firewalls. The Media Dozer: LIC application software is available as an add-on for DVEO's encoder and gateway appliances, including the Proxicaster, MultiStreamer, MPEG Gearbox, MultiStreamer Brutus, MPEG Magnus, and D-Streamer product lines. It is also available as a license for customers' own devices.
"This technology is ideal for CDNs, broadcasters, mobile operators, and telcos who deploy critical UDP streams across the public internet with the goal to be competitive," stated Laszlo Zoltan, Sales Manager for DVEO. "Customers in the USA use Dozer technology to import video content from Greece, Iraq, Colombia, and Bangladesh – with no packet loss or video freezes, and lower latency."
When Media Dozer: LIC is added to DVEO systems such as the MultiStreamer encoder or MPEG Magnus transcoder, the original content can be encoded or transcoded and converted to different IP protocols such as RTMP, RTSP, HLS, etc., before it is processed by the Media Dozer: LIC application.
When video will be transmitted and received from the same location, two separate systems are recommended for transmitting and receiving, for optimum video streaming.
