Latvian Mobile Operator LMT Uses Allegro Transcoders for 3GPP and DVB-H Mobile TV

PARIS — Latvijas Mobilais Telefons (LMT), the mobile operator and mobile technology innovation leader in Latvia, uses Allegro transcoders for simultaneous 3GPP and DVB-H Mobile TV broadcasting.

Allegro AL2000 transcoders enable the same program to be broadcast simultaneously to three screens, reaching the widest possible audience on IPTV, Internet TV and Mobile TV. Transcoders ingest compressed audio/video content, integrate operations such as video resize, frame rate change, and audio adjustment, and deliver it transcoded to a variety of codecs and transport modes, adapted to DVB, 3GPP, Windows Media, Flash, ISDB-Tb, and T-DMB players, mobile phones, and set-top boxes. A single 1 RU unit delivers up to 16 encoding profiles for unrivaled integration. It also offers redundancy, advanced network options, and graphical control for easier operation.

LMT is currently operating Allegro AL2000 transcoders for delivering Mobile TV to its 1 mil customers. Seven live channels are delivered both to 3GPP (RTSP) streaming, and DVB-H broadcasting. The integrated Allegro solution enables the same contents to reach viewers whether they experience it on mobile phones, or DVB-H receivers.
