It supports HEVC, 8K, CMAF, among other formats
MediaKind has announced its new product for delivering video files over any network to any device, Aquila On-Demand.
Aquila On-Demand combines a number of MediaKind products, and allows the encode, transformation, processing, packaging and delivery of file-based video content while supporting the likes of 8K, HEVC, and CMAF. The automated workflow can trigger both encoding and packaging processing from a single standalone request or can be controlled from an external content management system, allowing a full workflow solution.
It supports fast asset provisioning to enable a fast time to market for content, and embedded just-in-time packaging and encryption provides support for a variety of formats and DRM platforms. In addition, content can be prepared in a pre-packaged format for publication to external origins.
Finally, it supports for high compression ratios across multiple codecs including MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC and HEVC.
Stuart Boorn, vice-president of product management at MediaKind, said: “Today’s challenging world of media delivery requires solutions that are capable of ingesting any type of video feed and format, dynamically storing video when and where appropriate.”
“All this is needed while deployed on a diverse mix of physical and cloud infrastructure to stream live and stored video on demand to an array of device types. Through the launch of Aquila On-Demand, we are providing a content delivery workflow that responds to multiple use cases and applications, supports the latest audio and video capabilities and enables operators to provide richer user experiences to consumers.
This single solution addresses the significant growth in usage of on demand content and offers the necessary tools to process and deliver video files over any network to any device.”
