CodecCaster is a turn-key solution for real-time transcoding of IPTV streams up to full HD resolution. It offers high-performance and high-quality IP-based format conversion, and fully supports transcoding to multiple bitrates for adaptive streaming. Video transcoding from MPEG-2 Video to AVC/H.264 for MPEG Transport Streams is provided, as well as transcoding from AVC/H.264 to MPEG-2 Video, or any other combination. The world-class encoder of CodecCaster allows for greatly reducing bandwidth requirements of streams while keeping the original quality of experience, which makes CodecCaster the perfect solution for Internet transmission or when streaming in wireless networks.

Additional options for stream adaptation, such as deinterlacing, video scaling, frame rate conversion, and audio sample rate and format conversion allow for serving set-top boxes, tablets, mobile phones, and others.

CodecCaster is available as a 19-inch rack-mountable server appliance, or as a software-only version for easy installation on existing servers hosted in data centers.

The number of streams to be transcoded in parallel is not artificially limited: With CodecCaster 1000 HD, up to 10 different streams in full SD resolution can be transcoded in real-time with only a single 1U appliance, or even more when using downscaled streams.

Being compatible with existing gateways, conditional access systems, streaming servers, and set-top boxes, CodecCaster can be seamlessly integrated into your existing infrastructure.
