TV news reporters working in the field are the target audience for a new application that integrates an H.264/AVC and H.265/HEVC encoder into an Apple MacBook Pro.

The DMNG Laptop from Aviwest accepts inputs from both the in-built camera and external SDI and HDMI devices and allows content to be live streamed or transferred as files back to the newsroom in high quality.

"Broadcasters today need to minimise the amount of equipment they're carrying in the field and encode video in a way that enables crystal-clear streaming, without any latency," said Erwan Gasc, the chief executive of Aviwest.

"Our new DMNG Laptop application resolves these common challenges, allowing broadcasters to stay ahead of the competition by getting live videos and recording on-air quicker than ever, with better video quality."

The user interface makes it possible to manage various content delivery profiles and provides support for different use cases including live streaming and file transfer via wireless,mobile, satellite, LAN/WAN or the public internet.

By detecting and bonding together multiple IP network interfaces, the DMNG Laptop enables users to take advantage of every IP network in their immediate area as they become available.
