The new Digital Rapids Studio AVC Encoder is an optional module for Digital Rapids Stream media encoding solutions and Stream Transcode Manager distributed transcoding software.

The new Digital Rapids Studio AVC Encoder is an optional module for Digital Rapids Stream media encoding solutions and Stream Transcode Manager distributed transcoding software.

This has been optimised for delivering MPEG-4 AVC/H.264-encoded content meeting the requirements of VOD and IPTV platforms. Digital Rapids Studio AVC Encoder features the ATEME H.264 codec, delivering top encoding quality with support for Baseline, Main and High profiles.

Closed Caption data can be embedded in the H.264 elementary stream, with support for EIA-608, EIA-708, SCC and SAMI. Combining Digital Rapids flexible new multiplexing software architecture with technology from Manzanita Systems, Digital Rapids Studio AVC Encoder can multiplex the resulting H.264 video stream with elementary audio streams (including AAC and MPEG Layer 2 audio) into MPEG-2 transport streams. Transport streams created with the Digital Rapids Studio AVC Encoder can also support "trick play" modes for random access viewing features during set-top box playback.
