Description

The NOVUS-AT Adaptive Bit Rate Transcoder is a powerful real time transcoding solution
designed to meet rapidly evolving demands of adaptive rate streaming video delivery
applications. The product meets the challenge by providing high quality video to a wide variety
of viewing devices over a wide variety of networks and network conditions.

As sports, movies, and other programming becomes more commonly viewed on PCs, tablet
computers, smart phones, and IP enabled set-top boxes, dynamic adaptive rate streaming
technology enables a new paradigm in video service delivery. Employing cutting edge adaptive
rate streaming protocols, the NOVUS-AT permits video services to be delivered to any device,
anywhere, and over any IP network.

The scalable and cost effective modular design is capable of simultaneously transcoding and
formatting video services into multiple segmented adaptive profiles ranging from full HD down
to sub-SD resolutions.
