VBrick Systems, a provider of streaming video, has implemented major enhancements to its content delivery network platform.
VBrick’s H.264 Distributed Media Engine (DME) provides efficient distribution of live and on-demand streaming video content to diverse endpoints across dispersed locations, the company says. The DME’s “Release 2.0” software can transform and redistribute H.264 video streams, creating multiple streams of multiple video formats, thereby simplifying video delivery to more users and their vast array of devices, the company says.
The devices that can process the video streams include new iPhones and Android 4.0 devices which will be able to participate in live video corporate meetings and events, watch training and education content or efficiently access stored rich media, VBrick says.
The DME is the networking element of VBrick’s video architecture, which spans video capture, distribution, play-out and overall video content management, according to the company. The DME can be deployed at the edge of a network while being managed centrally by VBrick’s VEMS Mystro media management portal. As the networking element, DME 2.0 delivers robust support for the latest video standards including HLS (aka Apple Adaptive), Flash, Smooth Streaming and Transport Stream, VBrick says. The latter, along with sophisticated KLV metadata, enables delivery of video that includes telemetry data required for security and defense applications, according to VBrick.
As high-definition video use continues to grow rapidly in enterprises, government, healthcare and education, demand is growing to minimize bandwidth consumption, VBrick says. The DME effectively transforms and redistributes live, rich-media content as it supports cutting edge mobile phones and tablets. The engine also provides video content cache, storage and serving to assure that stored content is delivered as close to the end user as possible, the company says.
