IBC 2013 (4.A61g) – Icelandic Broadcasters have deployed Open Broadcast Encoder (OBE), a professional DVB encoder, usable on commodity hardware and open source, in a variety of contribution and distribution roles.
IBC 2013 (4.A61g) – Audio Visual Global J.S.C (AVG) which owns An Vien Television has selected Open Broadcast Encoder (OBE) to upgrade their DTH and DTT services. AVG uses OBE to encode its MPEG-4/AVC Direct to Home (DTH) satellite and Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) services as well as for head-end contribution encoding.
AVG Television’s deployment of OBE is one of the largest deployments of software DVB encoders for DTH and DTT encoding. OBE gives AVG a cost-effective platform with unrivalled flexibility and stability whilst at the same time future-proof. AVG were also able to customise OBE to meet market-specific needs, something not possible with proprietary competitors. OBE allowed AVG to increase its channel portfolio, allowing greater choice for customers.
