PLAINVIEW, NY--(Marketwired - September 11, 2016) - NeuLion, Inc. (TSX: NLN), a leading technology product and service provider specializing in the broadcasting, distribution and monetization of live and on-demand digital video content to Internet-enabled devices, today announced that it has licensed the new MainConcept® SCTE-35 SDK to Pebble Beach Systems.
Pebble Beach Systems Ltd. is a global leader in automation, channel in a box, integrated and virtualized playout technology for TV broadcasters and operators. Pebble Beach Systems' products combine powerful content management with scalable multi-channel automation, allowing broadcasters to simplify video ingest, playout, and automate complex file-based workflows.
Pebble Beach's Orca was awarded "Best of Show" at NAB 2016, and already incorporates MainConcept's H.264 Broadcast and MPEG-2 Codecs, and streaming technologies. With the additional license of MainConcept's newest product, enabling dynamic ad-insertion technology provided by SCTE-35 SDK, Pebble Beach Systems becomes one of the first customers in the broadcast automation market.
Dynamic ad-insertion identifies markers in broadcast streams during ingest and playout in content management systems. MainConcept's SDK provides a simple API for software vendors to handle SCTE-35 specification compliant metadata in MPEG Transport Streams, and allows retrieval, storage and insertion of ad-related data.
"Our customers look to MainConcept for guidance on evolving market dynamics for video and audio, and rely on us to support new technology trends and features in our SDKs. I'm particularly happy to see Pebble Beach Systems implementing our new SDK for dynamic ad-insertion in their Marina and Dolphin products," said Deacon Johnson, SVP Global Sales - Technology Licensing for MainConcept.
"MainConcept has been our trusted partner and technology solution provider for video, audio and streaming SDKs for many years, continuously adding improvements and new features as the market evolves. This new SCTE-35 SDK delivers important new functionality which our broadcast customers require." said Eric Openshaw - General Manager, Americas for Pebble Beach Systems.
