The Master Digital Media Transcoder range caters for a broad range of streaming requirements and is capable of off-line (file-to-file) transcoding, live transcoding and streaming.

Different transcoding activities require varying amounts of system resource. To help identify the remaining transcoding capacity, the AvediaStream t5300/t5600 track the activity of the device in real time, displaying an easy-to-read usage chart in the user interface.

Benefits of MasterStream Transcoders include:

  • Enable real-time delivery of video and audio content to any device, keeping end users up to date and entertained, wherever they are
  • Extend the reach of enterprise IP video by distributing audiovisual content to a broad range of devices
  • Stream an unlimited number of high definition TV channels to mobile devices – without consuming internet bandwidth

The main functions of the MasterStream Transcoders include:

  • Scale: reduce or increase the resolution of the image, for example, from 1080i to 360p
  • Transcode: change the encoding of the video and/or audio; for example, MPEG-2 to H.264
  • Transrate: alter the compression and therefore the transmission bit rate, regardless of whether the codec type is changed or not, for example, go from 6Mbps to 500kbps
  • Transpose: rotate the video (270 degrees) for use in portrait video applications, such as digital signage or airport flight information displays
  • Transcast: re-encapsulate stream transport container format to match playback devices or convert between multicast and unicast to pass through routed networks

The MasterStream Transcoder range has been developed to provide varying levels of transcoding power to match solution requirements:

t3605: The blade format t3605 is designed to transcode individual IPTV channels for delivery to third party and legacy IPTV devices on the LAN. The t3605 can also contribute streams to a CDN or deliver directly to small numbers of mobile clients via HLS.

t5300: The t5300 is a full featured, rack-mounted transcoder capable of transforming content to suit all viewing device types. It can transcode inputs up to 4K and can deliver up to 40 concurrent channels.

t5600: For more demanding transcoding requirements, the high-performance t5600 can process many different input types for integration into the IPTV system. The t5600 can transcode inputs up to 4K and deliver up to 75 channels simultaneously.
