For immediate release

In their effort to further expand the scope of aixtream-Software capabilities, Ferncast has added a new functionality to aixtream’s already substantial array of features: it will support audio signals transcoding as MPEG Transport Stream overUser Datagram Protocol (UDP). Their flagship software product is thus expanding its potential fields of application as well as its potential customer base even further.

MPEG Transport Streamis a digital container format used in the transmission of audio and video data, including those supporting the DVB(Digital Video Broadcast) standard. According to its own mission statement, the DVB Project is an industry-led consortium of the world’s leading digital TV and technology companies, including manufacturers, software developers, network operators, broadcasters and regulators. It has released multiple standards for digital audio and video transmission.

With this new technological development, aixtream can now support an even greater range of digital audio transmission. Together with its OTT streaming capabilities, aixtream has quickly turned into an all-rounder for digital audio transmission and transcoding.

‘The functions for audio data streaming as MPEG TS are fully integrated into aixtream GUI and the innovative Ferncast Pipe concept. This opens up entirely new possibilities for organizations interested in transmission of DVB-compliant streams’ said Dr Hauke Krüger, CEO of Ferncast. ‘This means that users who are looking for a solution for DVB applications can already benefit from aixtream Software advantages, like customizable Widget support and professional configuration.’

 Ferncast is looking forward to presenting those new capabilities to his customers.
