Allegro releases first live HEVC broadcast encoder | Machinimania |

Allegro DVT AL1200 and AL2200 are the world first live broadcast encoder and transcoder for HEVC. They are aligned with the latest standard revisions in order to provide glowing video quality, at a fraction of the bandwith required for MPEG-2 and H.264. With support for Transport Stream output and MPEG-DASH, they are well adapted for operators willing to early adopt this new compression standard.

Bitrate savings brought by HEVC allow premium video delivery at resolutions and places that operators and broadcasters were only dreaming of before. Furthermore, most of the delivery pipeline remains untouched, since HEVC will make use of agnostic delivery protocols such as MPEG-2 Transport Stream and MPEG-DASH.
