Bannister Lake updates its Chameleon data management solution with MPEG-DASH streaming protocol support
Bannister Lake has announced that MPEG dynamic adaptive streaming over HTTP (DASH) video content is now fully supported through its flagship Chameleon data management product. Responding to high market demand for the integration of the popular streaming format, Bannister Lake has added DASH playback support in the Chameleon Web Server and has integrated the streaming standard as a media material within its design tool, Chameleon Designer.
“As the broadcast industry moves toward streaming and new distribution models that include multiple devices, the incorporation of the DASH streaming protocol into television technology solutions has become an industry priority. DASH has quickly become a favored international standard and is widely supported on virtually all platforms” has stated Bannister Lake.
Using Chameleon, producers can create news, financial, sports, and weather offerings that combine an adaptive live streaming solution with data management, aggregation, and visualization. With the inclusion of DASH, Chameleon can support multiple concurrent streams of live or pre-recorded content, allowing OTT operators to switch between different streams. This feature provides flexibility for media organizations to quickly launch multiple national, regional, and localized versions of streamed services.
