Media Excel to Showcase Product Line at NAB 2013

Media Excel will be demonstrating its HERO encoding and transcoding product line at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) show in Las Vegas, Nev. from April 8-11.
In addition to its H.264/AVC encoding and decoding solutions, Media Excel will show how its products will be upgradeable to its IntelĀ®-powered H.265 High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) encoding technology, allowing users to maintain the same quality as H.264/AVC encoding with one-half the bandwidth.
Media Excel HERO video transcoding delivers a number of unique advantages for multi-screen TV, Internet TV and web TV providers, including multi-screen encoding of live and video on demand events, datacenter and cloud solutions, 99.999% proven uptime and native MPEG-Dash support. Media Excel solutions are designed for broadcasters, telecoms, and content aggregators with low-latency point-to-point distribution over IP and ASI networks, and adaptive delivery of HLS, Smooth, Flash, and MPEG-DASH to consumer devices.
"As the standard for multi-screen solutions, we feel compelled to offer our users more than what they expect," said John Hotchkiss, COO of Media Excel.
"With the option of datacenter or cloud transcoding, and our upgradeable HEVC encoder that exceeds the expected 50% bandwidth reduction of HEVC over H.264 with 10% more bandwidth efficiency, our HERO transcoding product line defines multi-screen and point-to-point transcoding."
