Imagine's ICE Video Platform gets Mediaroom certification

Video solutions vendor Imagine Communications today said its ICE Video Platform IPTV transcoder has successfully completed qualification testing for Microsoft's (Nasdaq: MSFT) Mediaroom.

The testing, part of the the Microsoft Mediaroom Interoperability and Qualification Lab program, means the ICE platform can be integrated with headend equipment used in Mediaroom deployments.

The ICE platform is available in a dense 1RU package or as a NEBS compliant Blade System. The platform is designed to enable service providers to deploy more channels with higher picture quality and then quickly add support for multiple devices such as tablets, PCs and smartphones.

The ICE platform integrates audio and video transcoding in the same platform as picture in picture creation, multiscreen transcoding and multi-format media streaming. Imagine said the platform currently serves thousands of live streams to over 20 million North American households.
