Technology Demos

Live Streaming via the Cloud Demo 
AVIWEST will provide a demonstration at NATEXPO 2015 that focuses on streaming real-time HD video over 3G/4G cellular wireless networks to a DMNG StreamHub receiver, decoder, and distribution platform hosted in the cloud. During the demo, AVIWEST will demonstrate how broadcasters can leverage the DMNG StreamHub's IP streaming output to deliver the video live to YouTube.

Key Product Updates

DMNG StreamHub
AVIWEST will showcase the latest version of its DMNG StreamHub receiver, decoder, and distribution platform at NATEXPO 2015. The DMNG StreamHub supports a rich set of input IP protocols, enabling reception of up to 16 concurrent incoming streams from remote AVIWEST DMNG PRO transmitters, DMNG smartphone applications, or third-party systems such as IP cameras. Leveraging the platform's four SDI outputs with a genlock input, broadcasters can decode up to four videos simultaneously. 

The DMNG StreamHub offers support for multiple output streaming protocols (e.g., RTMP, RTSP/RTP, HLS, TS/IP), allowing video content to be freely distributed over virtually any IP network. Up to 16 IP outputs can be utilized to enable re-streaming of video content over LAN or WAN to CDNs, media servers, streaming platforms, IRDs, or other DMNG StreamHubs. 

Designed to fit customers' unique needs and headend constraints, the DMNG StreamHub application can be hosted on a 1RU or 2RU server platform with various software configurations. The DMNG StreamHub also operates in virtualized mode to deliver all of the economic benefits of the cloud without compromising the performance required by today's media environments.

DMNG PRO180-RA Video Uplink System
At NATEXPO 2015, AVIWEST will highlight a number of new features recently added to the DMNG PRO180-RA video uplink system. This includes  a new IP Bridge functionality that allows broadcasters to establish an IP bridge between the LAN on which the DMNG StreamHub receiver is connected and the IP devices connected over Ethernet to the DMNG PRO. This set-up enables full control of all IP-based products, such as video mixers or PTZ cameras, directly from the DMNG StreamHub site, allowing for remote video production on the fly.

The DMNG PRO180-RA features eight 3G/4G internal modems with internal high-efficiency custom antenna array, a built-in Wi-Fi modem, and two best-in-class H.264 video encoders, making it the ideal solution for streaming live HD video with minimal delay. The system can be easily connected to any professional camera and mounted via V-Mount, Gold Mount, or PAG plates. 

One of the unique capabilities of the DMNG PRO180-RA system is its ability to automatically detect real-time network capabilities. Through a user-friendly and intuitive touch-screen interface, broadcasters and other video professionals can easily configure and operate the system as well as communicate with the studio through the IFB return channel. In addition, the unit can be controlled by the receiver (i.e., DMNG StreamHub), the management system (i.e., DMNG Manager), the DMNG Remote smartphone application, or any device connected to the unit though the network.

DMNG Manager
New cloud-based capabilities for AVIWEST's DMNG Manager will be on display at NATEXPO 2015. The DMNG Manager is an innovative server application that enables broadcasters and video professionals to monitor and manage an entire fleet of DMNG equipment, including DMNG transmitters, smartphones using the DMNG APP, and DMNG StreamHub receivers. 

During the show, AVIWEST will also showcase a new grid view that has been added to the DMNG Manager. This feature provides broadcasters with a video thumbnail of each feed from the field units. When arranged in a grid-view, these thumbnails ease system resource allocation by helping operators route video streams to one or multiple receivers or CDNs with a simple drag and drop.

DMNG RACK180 Contribution Video Encoder with QUAD Antenna Arrays
At NATEXPO 2015, AVIWEST will demonstrate the DMNG RACK180, one of the most reliable, affordable, mobile, and flexible solutions for streaming live HD video signals from anywhere in the world. The DMNG RACK180 provides broadcasters with a powerful encoding solution for live newsgathering applications, enabling them to cost-effectively capture and deliver HD video content in real-time over multiple networks, including 3G/4G cellular wireless, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and satellite. The DMNG RACK180 is especially designed to be installed in OB vans, SNGs, or other vehicles such as smaller news satellite cars.

To optimize signal delivery, the DMNG RACK180 provides connections to two AVIWEST QUAD wideband cellular antenna arrays, which offer extra-strong 3G/4G signal resiliency for live video transmission in critical conditions. AVIWEST's QUAD solution combines four high-efficiency wideband antennas operating from 600MHz to 3GHz, and covering all the frequency bands used by 3G and 4G networks worldwide. The QUAD's rugged design makes it perfect for both indoor and outdoor applications.

A key highlight at NATEXPO 2015 will be AVIWEST's DMNG APP, which turns any smartphone into a live broadcast video camera. The DMNG APP is now available as a software development kit (SDK). This allows broadcasters to embed the core of the AVIWEST app within their own application to achieve their own unique, branded look and feel.

Designed with ease of use in mind, the DMNG APP allows any Android(TM) or iOS-based smartphone user to transmit video content in just seconds. Using the DMNG APP, video professionals can stream high-quality, live video content via Wi-Fi and 3G/4G-LTE networks (even bonding both together for higher bandwidth, coverage, and reliability) or transmit prerecorded video files from anywhere in the world to the DMNG StreamHub receiver.
