Portland, Ore. – July 31, 2014 – Elemental Technologies, the leading supplier of software-defined video solutions for multiscreen content delivery, today announced it will demonstrate its advanced video processing solutions at the ABTA Expo & Conference, August 5-7 in São Paulo, Brazil. Solutions from Elemental are widely adopted across the media industry and help pay TV operators effectively deliver high-quality linear and on-demand multiscreen video to end users on any device.
Elemental, which successfully supported multiple global broadcasters in 4K high-efficiency video coding (HEVC) delivery of the 2014 World Cup, will demonstrate its video processing capabilities in booth G3 at this year’s ABTA Expo & Conference. Highlights include 4Kp60 HEVC for video-on-demand applications and support for new value-add live-to-VOD timeshift TV services, such as catch-up TV, start-over TV and nPVR.

Elemental Live then forwards an adaptive bit rate (ABR) stream in Apple HLS for delivery. Applications key to successful timeshift services also will be featured, including just-in-time packaging (JIT-P) and Apple HLS passthrough.
Additionally, Elemental together with Globosat and Broadcom, will provide insights into 4K HEVC, multiscreen content delivery and video over IP as well as recent use cases associated with some of the world’s biggest live sports events in a keynote presentation scheduled from 12h00 to 12h40 on Tuesday 5 August in Auditorium 4, STA Room 1, off of isle 2.
