IBC 2007 (Stand 4.331)
Anevia, the French designer of the Flamingo DVB-to-IP gateways and Toucan VOD/nPVR servers, will demonstrate the second generation of the IPTV gateways and servers that drive a 4000 title VOD service for Telecom Italia France, as well as a Network-PVR system at Finnish Alands DataKommunikation, Tele2 Sweden’s 20 channel DVB-T system and Sierre Energie of France’s 90 channel IPTV over FTTH service.
The new DVB to IP gateway, which was launched in June and has two CI CAM slots, will now also put through encrypted in addition to FTA channels. DVB-S2 is supported, and a single 1RU unit can stream up to 60 channels.
At IBC, Anevia will also demonstrate the new version of its Toucan videoserver, which is scheduled to become available next year. The second generation adds Catch Up TV, Pause TV and Start Over functionality to the existing VOD play-out and Network PVR capabilities. The 1 Rack Unit high video server can store up to 500 hours of video and record up to 10 channels at one time.
At the Broadband TV News offices, each and every day, Anevia have been of great service as the people who founded the company in 2003 were involved in the development of the VLC (Video LAN Client) media player. It offers most audio and video formats on most PCs, Windows, Mac, Linux and more, www.videolan.org.
