RGB Networks Teams With Dolby on TV Everywhere
AMSTERDAM -- RGB Networks, the leading provider of scalable multiscreen IP video delivery solutions, is working with Dolby Laboratories to enable video service providers (VSP) to improve the end-user quality of experience of their adaptive bitrate (ABR)-based multiscreen TV Everywhere services with support for stereo and surround sound across all devices.
The latest version of RGB’s TransAct Packager supports the Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital Plus codecs, packaging them for the most commonly used ABR formats. A critical component of a complete ABR-based delivery system, RGB’s TransAct Packager packages H.264 streams for the delivery of high-quality programming to tablets, smartphones, PCs, connected TVs and other IP-enabled devices.
As ABR-based multiscreen services become more mainstream, the focus has moved from simple delivery to ensuring a high-quality experience on par with the premium services consumers expect from their cable, telco or satellite provider. This applies to large and small-screen devices alike, with the audio experience becoming a critical complement to the video.
