Anevia Launches the First ’All-in-One’ MPEG-4 / H.264 VOD Server

Anevia has a breakthrough in MPEG-4 Video on Demand (VOD) solutions, with its new full featured MPEG-4 AVC / H.264 VOD server. Based on the live-indexing technology, the new Trick Play MPEG-4 function makes the Toucan 100 and Toucan 500 the first full featured MPEG-4 AVC / H.264 VOD servers to be deployed in the IPTV world. Thanks to Trick Play and Time Shifting, the end users will be able to fast rewind and fast forward, to enjoy Program Pause and Instant Replay in MPEG-4 video or live TV programs.

Trick Play function is being tested with main set-top box players, and has already been validated with Amino, Motorola and Sagem set-top boxes as well as streams from Allegro DVT, GrassValley, Harmonic and Tandberg TV encoders and streams processed through Terayon statistical remultiplexer.

This new function for MPEG-4 VOD and live IPTV expands the current features of Toucan 100 and Toucan 500. The Toucan hybrid server is now able to offer VOD, nPVR, Trick Play, Time Shifting, in both MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 formats as well as in SD and HD.
