Imagine Communications' ICE Video Platform Leads the Way With Microsoft Mediaroom 2.0 QualificationIndustry Leading Transcoding Solution Supports Mediaroom 2.0 Operations With Quality, Density, Reliability and Multiscreen Migration (March 27, 2012)
SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/27/12 -- Imagine Communications, a leading innovator in advanced digital video solutions, today announced that its award-winning ICE® Video Platform IPTV transcoder is one of the few transcoding solutions to be qualified for both 1.0 and 2.0 versions of Microsoft Mediaroom Internet Protocol TV (IPTV) platform. The test was administered by Tech Mahindra Corp. as part of the Microsoft Mediaroom Interoperability and Qualification Lab (IQ Lab) program, which is intended to enable seamless interoperability and compliance of headend equipment used in Microsoft Mediaroom 2.0 deployments.
Available in a dense 1RU (Rack Unit) package or as a NEBS-compliant Blade System, the Imagine ICE Video Platform is the ideal solution for IPTV service providers who need to deploy more channels with higher picture quality, and then rapidly and seamlessly add support for multiple devices such as tablets, PCs and smartphones. By integrating audio and video transcoding in the same platform as PIP (Picture in Picture) creation, multiscreen transcoding and multi-format media streaming, the ICE Video Platform provides an all-in-one solution for quality, scalability and reliability.
"We're excited to be the first few transcoding solutions qualified for the Mediaroom 2.0 platform. As our IPTV customers and partners are planning their own migrations to Mediaroom 2.0, we're ready to assist that transition and ensure the highest quality of experience for their customers and subscribers," said Imagine's Director of Market Development Scott Solovei. "Best picture quality, system density and reliability are still the calling cards for the ICE Video Platform, but as the IPTV ecosystem continues its upgrade cycle, it's just as important to ensure we're meeting our customers' demands for flawless interoperability, so Mediaroom 2.0 qualification is critical."
Imagine's ICE Video Platform is a widely deployed video processing solution that gives service providers the ability to deliver an unparalleled viewing experience for linear IPTV broadcasting and multiscreen transcoding, while realizing the most efficient network resource consumption. This powerful, multi-codec, multi-rate, multi-resolution video processing platform currently serves thousands of live streams to over 20 million North American households.
