Portable SDI/HD-SDI to IP Streamer/Encoder with Touch Panel Control – Mamba™ DIG/IP
The Mamba DIG/IP™ is only 12.25 inches long and 8.25 inches wide.  It connects to two simultaneous uncompressed SDI or HD-SDI video inputs from cameras, editing systems, or video servers, and supports simultaneous IP input.  Optional versions are available for a single HDMI input or 4 analog (composite) inputs, instead of SDI/HD-SDI inputs.

The device can create multiple simultaneous high, medium, and low bitrate H.264 HD or SD IP streams and sends them to smart phones, tablets, and content delivery networks (CDNs).  It outputs two 1080i/p streams, or one 1080 i/p and one 720p HD stream, or six SD streams. The IP transport streams can be provided with most industry standard protocols, including UDP, RTP, or IGMP, and wrappers such as HLS, RTMP, RTSP, etc.

The Mamba DIG/IP features an LCD touch screen for monitoring and front panel controls.  An easy-to-use management interface is used for setup and configuration and can be run from anywhere via the public internet. Different configurations can be saved at any time.  Remote management (SNMP, REST or SOAP) and multi level security are built in.

"The new Mamba DIG/IP combines portability and ease of use with true HD video quality, 24x7, for webcasting and streaming," stated Scott Grizzle, Product Manager for DVEO.  "We recommend it for electronic news gathering, streaming live video from events, concerts, sporting events, corporate training, and religious services.  The Mamba is designed for a solo webcast/streaming engineer to show up to an event and grab a video or source feed.  Once they have the feed they can use the front panel to change the IP address and destination and start and stop the streams.  For the full blown capabilities the user can log in remotely and customize more.  This allows one webcast engineer to control multiple machines and customize for optimal delivery.  So in all actuality, the unit could be shipped to a live event preconfigured and anyone can make onsite changes while not changing the overall delivery."

The system is also available with HDMI or composite input instead of HD-SDI input.  Another option is DVEO's built-in Live+Anytime Server™ live media distribution server.

Audio output is AAC, Ogg Vorbis, optional MP3, optional MPEG-1 Layer II, or optional "SurCode for Dolby Digital" AC-3.  Supported resolutions include qHD, H.264up, QCIF, QVGA, CIF, 480i, 480p, 576i, 720p, or any custom size up to 1080p.

The system runs on an Intel® 4 core i7 based CPU.  The application runs on a "minimal" UBUNTU Linux® kernel. 

The Mamba DIG/IP is compatible with major brands of IP devices including DUNE HD™, Amino™, Roku, Atlanta DTH, and Apple iPad® and iPhone®.  It is also compatible with major brands of CDNs and H.264 decoders.  The device is certified for use on Eutelsat Ka band systems.
