TelVue Launches New Configurable Broadcast Server for Hyperlocal TV

MOUNT LAUREL, NJ--(Marketwired - August 17, 2016) - TelVue® Corporation (OTC PINK: TEVE), the innovation leader in Television and Internet Broadcasting for communities, cable operators, and media companies today unveiled the HyperCaster AIO (All-In-One), a broadcast server with the ultimate flexibility in Input/Output configuration.

The HyperCaster AIO is the first in TelVue's highly successful HyperCaster Broadcast Server Series to include multiple, software configurable digital baseband (SDI) ports in a single server supporting playout, encoding and switching of live baseband video inputs. The HyperCaster AIO comes with up to twelve, auto-sensing SDI ports, and can handle format changes on the fly with built-in up/down/cross-conversion.

Coupled with the HyperCaster's IP output, and StreamThru™ switching and capture capabilities, the SDI input/output features provide the best of both traditional SDI and modern IP workflows all in one box. The AIO can broadcast and record a variety of live sources including:

  • remote encoders on a LAN or backhauled over the Internet
  • networked programming feeds
  • RTMP and HLS streams
  • baseband digital video

The HyperCaster AIO's built-in graphic overlay feature supports broadcast-quality news tickers, bugs, motion logos and snipes over all sources including both files and live with optional video squeeze-back.

The HyperCaster AIO supports an optional Simulcast feature that allows outputting HD and SD versions of the same channel on a pair of SDI ports. Both file and live sources are automatically converted as needed for each Simulcast path, eliminating the cost and complexity of file pre-processing, upstream and downstream conversion equipment.

"The HyperCaster AIO allows stations to customize a single box playback server that blends right in to existing baseband workflows, without sacrificing the HyperCaster's modular architecture or advanced IP features that make it easy to scale both input and output channels in the future," says TelVue President and CEO Jesse Lerman. "Additionally, the HyperCaster AIO is a great fit for Public, Educational, and Government (PEG) Access operations that are such an important part of the community media ecosystem. Most PEG stations are still stuck with SD channels only on Cable, even though most of their programming sources are now in HD. This is a big frustration point for PEGs. The Simulcast feature coupled with TelVue CloudCast makes it easy to deliver channels in full HD for web and mobile viewing, and to TVs via popular OTT devices such as Roku and Apple TV, while still delivering to Cable in SD."

The HyperCaster AIO sports two models:

  • The multi-channel HyperCaster AIO B2000 - a 2 rack unit box with up to 12 SDI ports with a mix of 5 simultaneous playback/encode channels, RAID 6 Storage, and redundant power supplies.
  • The single-channel HyperCaster AIO B100 - a 1 rack unit box with 4 SDI ports and 1 playback plus 1 encode channel.

Like all TelVue HyperCasters, the AIO models include a host of user-friendly features such as browser-based content management, easy scheduling tools, on-air graphics designer, multi-format HD/SD playback, and optional cloud video integration for content contribution, sharing, and streaming/OTT.

A live demonstration of the HyperCaster AIO will be featured at the upcoming Alliance for Community Media (ACM) National Conference in Boston, Aug 18-20.
