Our Products


  • Live encoding and transcoding


    The Utelisys Next Generation Transcoder family represents the state-of-the-art for high-performance, video applications. The perfect platform for broadcast, mobile, cloud or OTT services, the Next Gen Transcoder, can scale and be configured to meet your specific requirements. Configured with both the latest highperformance, Digital Signal Processors (DSP) and General Purpose Processors (GPP), the hybrid architecture of the Utelisys platforms offer the best of all worlds, and are the optimal solution for the encoding, transcoding and distribution of your video streams.


    Flexible DSP Configurations

    The Texas Instruments Keystone C66x Multicore DSP family provides the power that drives the Utelisys Next Gen Transcoder platforms. Available in both 1U and 2U configurations, that can support from 4 to 32 TI DSPs, the Utelisys Next Gen Transcoder can handle up to 800 streams with latencies as low as ~100ms. For applications that require greater capabilities with respect to increased self-contained, media storage subsystems, a 4U version of the transcoder platform will be available shortly.

    All platforms support HDMI/SDI and DVB inputs and have multiple 1Gbps and 10Gbps ethernet ports for video and network I/O. Raw power consumption and shelf/cabinet real estate is a concern for all operators. The flexible configurations and hybrid architecture supported by the Utelisys Next Gen Transcoder allows for the smallest physical footprint and power envelope, while offering unparalleled performance and channel capacities.

    Extensive Codec Support

    The Utelisys video transcoding engine supports multiple codecs, including MPEG-2 , MPEG-4 and H.264/AVC. With video being ~80% of all internet traffic, the Utelisys platforms are ready for the future with the latest H.265/HEVC capabilities that will halve bit rates while maintaining the same quality. Assessing and comparing transcoding performance is always a challenge as capacities vary widely depending on the inputs and outputs choosen. Full HD (i.e. 1080p60) represents the toughest scenario, and the Utelisys 2U Transcoder TC232 will support 32 such streams of full-HD transcoding.

    A key feature of the Utelisys software is the ability to make realtime changes to the transcoding of a live stream! Thus, an operator may chose to up/down rate the quality of a stream without affecting the end viewer. Whether transcoding or transrating, the Utelisys Next Gen Transcoder can handle the conversion of multiple HD and SD video streams for a vast array of TVs, PCs, tablets and mobile phones.



    Media Server Option for OTT

    In addition to the standalone transcoder capability, operators may chose to add the optional multi-platform, media server that can act as an over-the-top (OTT) appliance. With full support for adaptive bitrate (ABR), the media server can automatically adapt to any type of network on the client side, whether it is 3G, 4G, WiFi or ethernet connected. The built-in media server can stream video-on-demand (VOD) or live action, and support several thousands of subscribers. Fully-rackable configurations can extend support to millions of viewers around the globe.
