Media Vision, the established provider of high-quality conference systems, has announced its entry into the streaming market with a robust all-in-one solution for multichannel video capture, recording and streaming with multiple audio tracks.
The solution named Attend Sixteen can provide up to 16 channels of digital audio on one high-resolution broadcast stream, using Dante media networking technology; an innovative step forward for AV and IT enterprise managers in facilities hosting multilingual meetings, particularly international organizations, global corporations and courtrooms.
How do you stream video content in multiple languages? Up till now, the conventional response has involved either duplicating video content for each audio channel, or building complex dedicated infrastructures, both engendering high operational costs. “Multilingual technology solutions are often tricky to manage and there was clearly an unmet demand for streaming devices with multiple audio tracks” says Wesley Sutliff, Director of Product Management at Media Vision.
With years of experience in delivering language interpreting equipment, Media Vision has developed a deep understanding for the needs of the multilingual community and dedicated resources to engineer the solution to their streaming needs.
“The Attend Sixteen Capture Device is a turnkey professional streaming solution that lifts industry standards” says Wesley Sutliff “we made the device Dante-enabled to support facility managers in their global design for audio”. Other noteworthy capabilities of the Capture Device include: multiple video inputs with versatile DVI-I connections to handle high definition video and content feed, and onboard recording with 1TB of internal storage and USB download capability.
The Attend Sixteen solution can be used as a standalone streaming and recording device or used in tandem with the Media Server software and integrated with a CDN for large scale implementation. The media server provides a flexible, customizable user interface to fully manage the streaming workflow for live and on-demand video. It is loaded with features that encourage interaction from the viewers and enable sharing across multiple social media sites.
For live video deployment, a high level of process automation can be achieved when integrating the Attend Sixteen Device with conference microphone systems. Audio files from conference systems are generally tagged with metadata – such as the delegate’s name or meeting topic – that can be used to add markers to a recorded event. Markers will enhance the users’ online experience, allowing them to jump to a specific section of the recording or share clips.
Attend Sixteen Video Streaming Solution will be introduced and available for demonstrations at Integrated Systems Europe, Media Vision’s booth #3-C89. A reliable solution for all providers of live and on demand video content – including in the education market – Attend Sixteen is primarily intended for multilingual applications. As Wesley Sutliff says “Media Vision is breaking down barriers to enable an increased number of multilingual streaming events to take place”.
