DetailsMichelle Clancy | 04 April 2015

Imagine Communications has upgraded its SelenioFlex Live and SelenioFlex File solutions to support Ultra HD/4KTV bandwidth requirements.

The SelenioFlex Live software release supports SD and HD live video streams for existing platforms, while Ultra HD real-time encoding will see use in new platforms.

SelenioFlex is a software-based transcoding and encoding solution for live and file-based media processing. The enhancements to the platform include file-to-file media processing and live/linear multiscreen encoding.
Bandwidth constraint issues have challenged broadcasters, video service providers (VSP) and other content creators that want to deliver more 4K content.

"By supporting next-generation codecs like HEVC, we are enabling media companies to deliver more channels, at higher resolutions and to a broader array of screens and devices than ever before," said Steve Reynolds, CTO at Imagine Communications. "This enhancement ensures our customers' investments are future-proofed to support next generation standards for live and video on demand distribution while also supporting the increasing amount of Ultra HD/4K content being produced."
