DVEO Launches Streaming Appliance for Multiple Channel Scheduled Continuous HLS Streaming

DVEO is now shipping their new continuous streamer and VOD (video-on-demand) media server.  The Infinity Streamer™ streams multiple HLS video files, plus audio files, from the on board .5 TB  drive, with scheduled playlists.  DVEO will demonstrate the new system at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam, September 7-11, at Stand 2.A54.

The Infinity Streamer is a streaming server for stored content.  Input can be individual files or multiple files.  File types supported are H.264 ts, flv, H.264 ps, .mov, VC-1 (.wmv), mkv, and others.   The Infinity Streamer also supports loopable playback.

The input of the stored content typically arrives via FTP file transfer, and the files to be played are stored on the server.  The standard system includes a .5 terabyte hard drive.

The Infinity Streamer adds various “Wrappers” such as HLS, RTMP, RTSP, etc.  The system can output many streams at the same time, with different wrappers and bit rates for each stream.

“The Infinity Streamer streams multiple playlists on multiple channels, which makes it ideal for looped playout over the Internet,” commented Scott Grizzle, Product Manager for DVEO.  “With the scheduling, playlists stream out live at predetermined times.  We recommend it to our customers for digital signage, distance learning, ads and promotional spots, and more. One customer plans to create an internal YouTube™ farm.”

The Infinity Streamer runs on a Xeon® 4 Core CPU.  It relies on a “minimal” Linux® Kernel (residing in a flash memory device) that is highly ruggedized and task optimized for live streaming, coupled to a web-based GUI that can be run from anywhere.

The system has been tested to be compatible with the latest Adobe®, Wowza®, and Real Helix™ servers, and many CDNs.
