OTT System Overview

Transcoder

OTT Transcoder

Features:

The Transcoder converts input streams to several different Adaptive Bit Rates (ABR).

For example, one 4 Mbps input stream is converted to 2 Mbps, 1 Mbps and 500 kbps streams which are automatically selected depending on the user’s bandwidth, permitting little buffering when streaming high-resolution feeds (begins with low-resolution and increases).

    • Transcodes assets (TV channel or movie)
    • Supports mobile SD, SD, HD ready, Full HD, and 4K
    • Normally 3 speed profiles (kbps) are used per asset
    • Each speed profile can be packaged in HLS Apple, HLS Microsoft and/or MPEG DASH streams
