MediaKind launches next-generation broadcast solution to usher in the future of IP-based media delivery

MediaKind, a global media technology leader, has launched its next-generation broadcast solution, Aquila Broadcast, to enable broadcasters and operators to make a seamless, step-by-step transition from appliance-based platforms to all-IP media delivery. Powered by software-based video compression, control and stream processing, Aquila Broadcast enables industry leading picture quality with resolutions up to UHD with HDR support, while also offering wide codec support and significant bandwidth savings.

As demand for live content increases, satellite and terrestrial broadcasters, as well as some cable and IPTV operators, are faced with the challenge of growing costs – and reduced availability – of satellite capacity. MediaKind has developed Aquila Broadcast to ensure compatibility across all-IP technologies and standards, increased transponder density whilst retaining video quality and deployable as an appliance or as pure software, with the ability to support on-premise and cloud-based implementations.
