VBrick has introduced an integrated suite of H.264-specific products for the full spectrum of creation, delivery and consumption of live or on-demand IP video streaming for enterprise customers, making H.264 video content available both inside and outside the firewall to upwards of 100,000 viewers simultaneously.
VBrick Networked Video Appliance
The H.264 product suite features VBrick’s next-generation Networked Video Appliance, built on a redesigned architecture and supporting standard- and high-definition video delivery with maximum bandwidth optimization. Other components of the suite include a new set-top; a hardware decoder that provides “always on” H.264 decoding; an 11-slot rackmount shelf; and enhancements to VBrick’s Enterprise Media System (VEMS), which won a Government Video SALUTE award at GV Expo 2009.
The suite also includes H.264-based Flash video delivery in the VBrick Online Streaming Service (VBOSS)
The products add up the ability to deliver live and stored rich media to a virtually unlimited number of concurrent users across corporate, education and government customers, the company said. VEMS uses advanced bandwidth optimization to intelligently route users to the best location to receive video content, without impacting the performance of other networked applications.
The Networked Video Appliance is available in both an industrial or enterprise version and allows customers to deliver video in a wide range of quality (from 3G to HD) over any network infrastructure with improved quality and bandwidth utilization.
VBrick’s new STB is an ideal decoder for cost-sensitive installations that require large-scale deployment to plasma and other flatscreen displays, the company said. It can be controlled via an infrared remote and be configured for interactive or standalone use.
VBrick’s new 11-slot rackmount shelf is a redundant hot-swappable system whose operation is not impacted by power supply or fan failure. And, a variety of blade options provide maximum flexibility for different I/O and video resolutions. The shelf is compactly designed with all I/O accessible from the front.
VBrick has been utilized by scores of agencies; read about the role of VBrick at the Federal Trade Commission in the March 2010 issue of Government Video.
