NEWS MOVE & DELIVER Uplink Stand M16 AVIWEST, the video contribution uplink company, will demo enhancements to its Digital Mobile News Gathering (DMNG) system at BVE 2015. Updates include the addition of cloud capabilities, designed to optimize the delivery of breaking news and live events for broadcast applications, and a Linux version of its DMNG Studio server. The cloud- based capabilities are for the company’s DMNG Manager, a server application that enables users to monitor and manage an entire fleet of DMNG equipment including transmitters, smartphones and Studio receivers. Using a unified web interface that can be installed through either a cloud-based application or a headend solution, operators can allocate resources and route live video content for transmission over 3G/4G mobile, WiFi, Ethernet, and satellite networks. The new Studio server is designed to receive incoming streams from DMNG video uplink systems, IP cameras, and other equipment via RTP, RTSP, TS over UDP, and RTMP. Based on a Linux operating system it offers support for multiple output formats as well as point-to-point and point-to-multipoint video distribution. www.aviwest.com Video delivery Video infrastructure Vualto has signed an exclusive UK reseller agreement with OpenTelly that will see the Belgian company’s THEOplayer added to its video delivery technology portfolio.
