Digigram has announced a new V7 software release for IP-based distribution and contribution of video.

The enhancements are for the company's AQILIM range of encoding and transcoding solutions for multiscreen/over-the-top (OTT) video delivery, and its AQORD encoding/decoding solutions for broadcast contribution applications.

"Demand for IP video continues to grow, both in the media-consumption marketplace and in professional production environments, and our V7 software release enables AQILIM and AQORD users to address this demand more quickly and easily," said Laurent Gros, video product manager at Digigram. "In applications ranging from CDN streaming to point-to-point contribution to live streaming, Digigram video encoding and transcoding solutions equipped with V7 software offer functionality that boosts users' ability to reach broader markets and take full advantage of IP video delivery. Very few encoders boast such flexibility, and very few give users the ability to do so much with a single unit."

With the new V7 software release, users of Digigram's AQILIM *SERV/FIT, AQILIM *FIT, and AQILIM *FIT/LE encoding/transcoding solutions now perform independent audio and video encoding. By allowing encoded audio to be mixed using one or more separate containers, the update increases users' encoding flexibility, facilitating simpler and faster encoding of audio and video for a broader range of targets in a wider array of distribution applications.
