The days of good old linear TV are far from being numbered. On the contrary, over the last years TV viewing time in private households has even further increased from an already high level. However, how and especially where viewers use their TV is changing. Due to Video-on-Demand, multiscreen, SmartTV, and HbbTV, viewing habits and needs change from generation to generation.

As a rule, TV becomes more interactive and mobile the younger the viewer is. At the same time there is a trend towards HD technology, and as a consequence, bandwidth requirements are rapidly increasing. Telecommunications service providers and city carriers have to take this development into account when expanding their existing network infrastructure.

The Video Transcoding Challenge

Many OTT providers and broadcasters struggle to provide their customers with excellent video quality on all platforms and devices – from high resolution TVs and computer screens to tablets and mobile phones. The problem is that the media content has to be adapted to a large number of formats.

The Inca IP Video Platform allows for intelligent video streaming and linear as well as multi-bitrate video transcoding. It provides an easy way for network operators to optimise their transport streams and manage bandwidth efficiently. Inca is a vital support to all operators that wish to extend their offers towards multi-screen applications and services. The Inca transcoder makes it possible to adapt the format, resolution and bitrate of large numbers of live satellite, IP and off-air digital sources for delivery to set top boxes or multi-screen end devices.
