Video Quality remains the paramount feature that customers demand and encoder vendors are graded upon. HERO’s leadership in the encoder Video Quality has been proven throughout the years. HERO was chosen against other encoder vendors in head-to-head shootouts with major companies like MobiTV, LGU+ and Telstra. High Profile clients like the NBA, NFL, Olympic Games and the World Cup have relied on HERO’s superior quality to deliver exceptional content to their viewers.
Next to quality the most important aspect of a video delivery infrastructure is its availability and reliability. HERO and HERO Management Software (HMS) deploy a series of mechanisms to ensure strict compliance with fail-over redundancy and high availability. HERO’s reliability has been proven out in the FIFA World Cup where ESPN delivered 71.8 million minutes of live streaming over 64 soccer games with 100% uptime, using Media Excel’s encoding solution.
Channel density and speed become an important parameter when channel count is high or is expected to grow fast. This is also tightly associated to budgetary, CAPEX and OPEX constraints as channel density directly affects rack space, power consumption, cooling and maintenance costs. From a Total Cost of Ownership perspective, HERO delivers.
