“MediaStream Incut” is professional software for TV-content regionalization performed in real-time in DVB SPTS/MPTS/T2MI streams. This includes ad-insertion, adaptation, blackouts, scrolling tickers and animated banners overlaying, live insertions.
Software works under Microsoft Windows on x86/x64 processors, operates as a service/daemon, and is 24/7/365/N oriented. “MediaStream Incut” captures in real-time incoming main DVB-stream, alanlyzes it, and performs insertion of local file-based content or local live streams into main stream, in some cases even without transcoding. Insertions are made without timebase disruption and frame times gaps/overlaps and are performed by changing of TV-content (no time shift or any long-time delay is done). Video transcoding is always performed while some graphics is overlaid. Hardware-accelerated decoding/encoding on Intel-GPU is supported.
However it’s possible to control system and perform operations manually.
To process DVB IP streams Intel/Broadcom NICs are strongly recommended, particularly Silicom NICs with hardware relay bypass and watch-dog timers for reliability reasons.
To process DVB ASI, system requires DekTec or Deltacast PCIe hardware (particularly DekTec DTA-2145/2175 are equipped with relay bypass and WD-timer).
To receive DVB-S/S2/T/T2/C/C2, system uses any Windows-compatible hardware interface (BDA).
For SDI capture/playout, Deltacast, Blackmagic Decklink, Dektec interfaces supported.
To operate with H264/H265 streams software tries to use Intel Quicksync technology (hardware GPU) if it is accessible. Thus, to achieve best quality and performance, CPU is to be equipped with Intel 530-graphics and higher. Recommended processor models: Intel Xeon E3-12x5v5 and v6, Xeon E3-1585v5, Xeon E-2286G, Core i5-7260U, Core i7-10700, Core i7-1185G7.
Recommended OS: Windows 10 IoT Enterprise LTSC with certain group-policy tuning.
Approximate resource consuming – one server based on Intel Xeon E3-1275v5 with 16 GB RAM can process:
