WISI launches with its BlueLine Transcoder Series (BLT), a IP video transcoding platform. The new BLT series features MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC IP transcoding in 1 power-saving RU, new with density options for up to 24 channels. Validated against thousands of broadcast streams worldwide, the BLT offers a variety of models to transcode, transrate or downscale HD and SD sources.
Supported features include multilingual DVB subtitle burn-in and optional high-density audio transcoding. Third-party video and audio technologies have been certified with all Inca Networks and WISI transcoders and the appropriate licenses are properly protected. With the BLT series, operators can affordably launch new HD and SD programs in cable or IPTV headends.
The BLT also helps reduce business risk by replacing end-of-life transcoder products. Unlike other low-cost transcoders, the BLT combines the quality and reliability of Inca’s transcoders – successfully deployed worldwide for nearly a decade – backed by a dedicated technical support team.
It is also compatible with other popular WISI video delivery platforms such as TANGRAM and CHAMELEON for a full end-to-end headend solution. Configuration and troubleshooting is simple with its easy-to-use web-based management interface as well as automated handling and recovery of ‘challenging’ video sources.
