Yokohama, Japan and Rosh Ha’ayin, Israel – 12 April 2016 - NTT Electronics (NEL, http://www.ntt-electronics.com/en/products/video/), a leading supplier of codec solutions, and VideoFlow (http://www.video-flow.com), a global provider of Digital Video Protection (DVP) solutions, announced today they are partnering to enable the delivery of high reliability, low delay professional-quality video over any IP network.
Committed to providing customers with a reliable and cost-effective solution for video delivery over IP, various NEL encoders now leverage VideoFlow’s DVP Controlled Adaptive Rate (CAR) technology to ensure continuity of service over unmanaged IP connections. The DVP constantly probes the connection’s bitrate capacity. In the event of a change, DVP adapts the NEL MVE5000 encoder bitrate in real time to be slightly below the network capacity, thereby avoiding congestion. The MVE5000 responds to the DVP’s commands in a seamless manner, adapting the video bitrate on-the-fly with no interruption to the service.
"We are very excited to work with VideoFlow,” said Hisashi Ibaraki, General Manager of the Digital Video & Systems Business Group of NTT Electronics. “They have a highly advanced product portfolio for the video over IP market, and we believe this powerful partnership will provide our valued customers with an extremely efficient and reliable solution to broadcast live video over IP.”
The MVE5000 encoder is the newest NEL encoder to benefit from the partnership with VideoFlow. Now, broadcasters looking to deliver live video over IP can choose among the MVE5000 and NEL’s HVE9x00 encoder family. The MVE5000 is already the encoder of choice for many major broadcasters, and the addition of VideoFlow’s CAR technology has accelerated the evaluation of this encoder for professional live broadcasts over IP. In addition, MVE5000 can bring users the super low latency, seamless protection switching and multiple FEC functions required to enhance the robustness of the transmission system. NEL will be showcasing this solution at the NTT Group booth at SU5021 and the VideoFlow booth SU10113 during NAB2016 in Las Vegas.
"We are proud to partner with NTT Electronics, which is widely known for their industry-leading products for the contribution market,” said Adi Rozenberg, CTO of VideoFlow. “Through this partnership, customers will continue to benefit from NEL's high quality codec products, while VideoFlow’s nine layers of video quality protection will enable them to reach 4½ nines (99.995%) service availability over IP connections.”
VideoFlow is a leading provider of products that enable a secure, uninterrupted and reliable live video broadcast over any IP network. By boosting the reliability of IP networks through patent-pending technology and a rich built-in feature set, VideoFlow's Digital Video Protection (DVP) product line has made service continuity an affordable reality. These products allow customers to accelerate ROI through lower operational costs and new revenue streams.
