DVEO Introduces Palm-Sized H.264 HDMI Encoder and Decoder with End-to-End Latency of 400 Milliseconds

Ministreamer™ HDMI/IP and Mini D-Streamer™ IP/HDMI to Debut at NAB 2017

San Diego, California — DVEO®, a well respected supplier to leading telco TV/OTT and cable operators around the world, is now shipping miniature low latency H.264 HDMI encoders and decoders.  The single-channel Ministreamer™ HDMI/IP and Mini D-Streamer™ IP/HDMI will make their debut in booth SU5724 at the NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) Show, April 24-27, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“We shrank the products, and lowered the price and the latency,” stated Laszlo Zoltan, Vice President of DVEO.  “When used together, the Ministreamer HDMI/IP and Mini D-Streamer IP/HDMI have an end-to-end latency of 400 milliseconds.  Both devices are 5.5 inches wide and weigh only 1.6 pounds, which makes them ideal for mobile and event streaming.  And we can customize them if needed.”

The Ministreamer HDMI/IP encodes a single IP stream at .1 to 60 Mbps.  The H.264/AVC output can be scaled to any resolution up to 1080p 30/1080i 60.  IP output protocols are DASH, HLS, UDP, RTP, and RTMP (Open Flash).  The system can record and stream at the same time with the built-in 32 GB solid state drive inside the unit, or with any USB attached storage.

Audio output is AAC, MPEG Audio, or AC-3.  The Ministreamer HDMI/IP also supports logo insertion, text overlay, and SCTE 35 compliant cue tone insertion (“ad markers”) on the IP output.  An optional SDI/HD-SDI input version, the Ministreamer HD-SDI/IP, is available.

The Mini D-Streamer IP/HDMI decoder supports HLS, HTTP, RTSP, HTML, or RTMP (pushed from Flash server) in and converts H.264/AVC or MPEG-2 compressed digital video and audio into professional digital HDMI output.  This device decodes at .1 to 60 mbps.  It has been tested for interoperability with third party encoders like Teradek™, Ateme®, Harmonic®, etc.  It is ideal for receiving and decoding streaming video from remote sites, content delivery networks (CDNs), or IPTV compatible appliances or players.

“The Mini D-Streamer IP/HDMI also makes a great Linux® set-top box,” commented Laszlo Zoltan.  “We can also add DOZER packet recovery to the device.”

For point-to-point or point-to-multipoint applications, DVEO’s patented DOZER™ ARQ (Automatic Repeat Request) Automated Packet Recovery protocol can be added to the Ministreamer™ HDMI/IP and Mini D-Streamer™ IP/HDMI, ensuring packet loss free real-time video delivery over IP networks including wireless and the Internet.

The fanless Linux® based systems are manageable from anywhere via the web GUI, which includes some scheduling.  The software is scanned for vulnerabilities and open ports.
