SysMaster expands the Broadcaster product line with the release of Broadcaster Blade.
Innovative, multifunctional device can capture signals from live cameras /satellite/ cable/ terrestrial receivers and send them over IP to end user devices.
WALNUT CREEK, CA, June 15, 2010 – SysMaster Corporation, a leading provider of IPTV solutions, expands the range of the highly successful Broadcaster series with the announcement of the Broadcaster Blade. Analog TV transmission is still prevalent in many countries in the world and there is huge demand for the content to be broadcast around the world using the latest IPTV technology. Sysmaster has introduced a ground breaking product to convert the analog channels to IP and transmit over internet and IPTV networks. This product will also be helpful where digital channels are using proprietary encryption technologies – content is captured via standard receivers and then converted to IP streams.
The Broadcaster Blade captures Analog video from live cameras/satellite/cable/terrestrial receivers and encodes the signals into MPEG4/H.264 IP Transport Streams. The Broadcaster Blades are equipped with very high powered custom boards which can transcode eight channels per board for a total of up to 16 channels per Broadcaster Blade. The Broadcaster Blade sends the streams via IP to the set-top-boxes of the end-users. Broadcaster with its embedded streaming capability has the unique ability of transporting the streams via Multicast or Unicast. Broadcaster also has built-in authentication and limited billing capability, which makes it an ideal product for commercial establishments like hotels, hospitals and MTU/MDUs.
“SysMaster” is committed to expanding the capabilities, cost-effectiveness and popularity of content delivered over IP – and the Broadcaster Blade is a major advance in that direction, says SysMaster CEO. “The high density of channels per Broadcaster, encoding and streaming via Multicast/Unicast and conditional access that we’ve engineered into this product has made this a runaway success with multiple installations in different continents within a short time of launching the product”
The Broadcaster works with all popular video compression formats, including MPEG2, MPEG4 and H.264.
