Changes and adjustments are also simple and fast whether you need to change the bit rate, adjust the frame rate, resolution, or even the stream destination.  The user interface was designed to allow for fast and simple configuration and set-up.  Simply connect your camera, configure the stream settings, and start your streaming event.

Scale up and reach out to a real-time audience

With online distribution you have the ability to reach thousands of viewers without having to build out a massive infrastructure in-house.  Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) take your live streaming content and then enable you to expand your reach across different types of devices and across different connection speeds and screen sizes.  Viewers on iPads and iPhones have different requirements for playing the online streaming video than audience members that may be watching on their laptop or on a Android tablet or phone.  CDNs take your live streams and transcode them so they are available for viewing across multiple device types and screen sizes. We have pre-tested our hardware encoders against leading CDN companies and have built in support that includes predefined templates to simplify the set up and reduce the amount of time and effort required to publish your streaming content.

The fifth annual Streaming Media 100—our yearly list of the most interesting, important, and influential companies in online video— shows an industry that’s come into its own, one that some might even say has reached maturity.

That’s not to say it’s stagnant. The 2015 list is significantly different than last year’s, but only by 15 companies. Compare that to 2014, which featured 24 companies that weren’t on the 2013 list.

New PESA Blade System Wins NewBay Media 2015 NAB Show AwardBoS_2015_TVT_rgb_transparent

Both PBS cards – the C22-PBS-T for MPEG transport streams and the C22-PBS for RTSP and RTMP streams – can be configured as a two-port video encoder, two-port decoder, or include one of each. Two external audio sources can be synchronized to either or both video streams during an event. Plus, the C22s feature HDMI I/O ports for encoding HDMI sources or local HDMI monitoring. PESA is also developing additional proprietary cards to handle signal conversion and scaling.

“We appreciate the recognition from the TV Technology team,” said Chris Thomas, PESA president. “The new PESA Blade System is an important component in our integrated solution, because it provides world-class encoding and decoding, along with seamless routing between baseband and IP-based sources. The result is a true hybrid infrastructure for broadcasters and command and control facilities that is controlled through one interface and supports streaming, 4K, HD, and legacy SD signal sources.”…
