Exterity, the leading provider of enterprise IP video technologies for the secure
distribution of live, on-demand and recorded video over IP, today announced the
extension of its AvediaStream transcoder range with the launch of the
AvediaStream t5300 and improved t5600, which will make their debut at ANGA COM
(June 6-9 in Cologne, Germany) and InfoComm 2016 (June 4-10, Las Vegas, NV,
USA). The new t5300 enables organizations to deliver up to 40 channels
simultaneously, in contrast to the performance-enhanced t5600, which now
facilitates the delivery of up to 75 concurrent video channels. Both support content
delivery up to 4K video quality.

The AvediaStream transcoders are high-performance content transformation tools
that enable content to be easily converted into a compatible format for delivery to
the user’s preferred viewing device, whether that’s a TV/display screen, computer
or mobile device. Different transcoding activities require varying amounts of system
resource. To help identify the remaining transcoding capacity, the AvediaStream
t5300 and t5600 track the activity of the device in real time, displaying an easy-to-
read usage chart in the user interface. The Transcoder range consists of hardware
appliances capable of off-line (file-to-file) transcoding, live transcoding and

Colin Farquhar, CEO at Exterity, said: “We have designed the new AvediaStream
t5300 and t5600 transcoders to ensure that our customers benefit from the best
performance for their needs across a wide range of devices. The t5300 and t5600
adapt to many environments, and can be deployed and used by companies of all
sizes in, for example, the corporate & finance world who need to maintain the
highest level of security, or by offshore clients, such as oil & gas or cruise ships,
who use their existing IP network to distribute a wide range of channels to remote
sites and a broadening range of devices.’

As video becomes a crucial asset for all these sectors, the highly versatile
AvediaStream t5300 and t5600 transcoders enable the IP video system to deliver
live news, corporate communications, health & safety messages and promotional
content in a seamless way to any connected device. The transcoder range supports
the latest industry standards for transcoding, including H.264 and MPEG-2. To
enable organizations to deploy their IP video system across a wide number of
devices, the transcoders automatically adapt the bit rate and resolution to each
device’s capability, and rotate the content to fit in the screen, providing vertical
images for digital signage or airport flight information displays. Finally, to utilize
the infrastructure in the most effective way, the transcoder range can re-
encapsulate stream transport container format to match playback devices, or
convert between multicast and unicast to pass through routed networks.

The AvediaStream t5300 and t5600 transcoders will be on show at the following
• ANGACOM (June 6-9, Cologne Messegelande, Germany) on stand 10.1 / S15
• InfoComm 2016 (June 4-10, Las Vegas Convention Centre) on stand N2839
