At the TelcoTV 2010 conference in Las Vegas this week, RGB Networks announced the launch of its new TransAct Packager, the latest component of the company’s ‘three screen’ solution portfolio that enables video service providers to deliver programming to TVs, PCs and mobile devices.??
Adaptive streaming technologies – including Apple HTTP Live Streaming, Microsoft Smooth Streaming and Adobe HTTP Dynamic Streaming – combined with advanced DRM encryption, have fundamentally changed the way video service providers can choose to deliver content to users. TransAct Packager works by ingesting transcoded streams, such as those from RGB’s Video Multiprocessing Gateway (VMG), and then utilizes adaptive streaming capabilities to package and stream video to content delivery networks (CDN), origin servers, and end-user devices.?
The TransAct Packager is initially available on RGB’s 1RU Application Media Server (AMS) or as software that can be installed on standard server hardware such as blade servers.
