Telestream Launches ‘Vantage’ Transcoding Solution

System automatically prepares and delivers content for transmission over IPTV and VOD

Telestream, a provider of digital media tools and workflow solutions, unveiled Vantage Transcode IPTV VOD, a highly-focused transcoding solution developed to automatically prepare and deliver content for transmission over Internet protocol television or cable video on demand workflows.
Vantage Transcode IPTV VOD offers graphics processing unit-accelerated H.264 encoding using the x264 codec, which has been shown to reduce bit rates by up to 50 percent while increasing quality, Telestream says. That enables IPTV providers to offer a better viewer experience while simultaneously lowering transmission costs, according to the company.
“The real challenge around encoding video for IPTV and cable VOD is how to get the highest quality at the lowest bit rate with the maximum amount of control for transport stream multiplexing and metadata,” says Barbara DeHart, Telestream’s vice president of marketing. “With our new transcoder we’ve accomplished all three in a way that has never been done before,” she said.
