Intinor brings excellence in contribution streaming to MPTS with Zest Technologies 

F47, Media Production & Technology Show (MPTS), London, 15-16 May 2024 – Intinor, Sweden’s leading developer of products and solutions for high-quality video over the internet, is set to join forces with its UK partner Zest Technologies at MPTS (Olympia London, 15 – 16 May). Intinor continues to improve and advance its widely-used streaming technology, and visitors to MPTS can see the latest versions on the stand of Intinor’s partner Zest Technologies, F47.

“Joining forces with Zest at MPTS presents a significant opportunity for Intinor to showcase our cutting-edge solutions for high-quality internet video,” said Daniel Lundstedt of Intinor. “Our many users – broadcasters, esports services, or streaming networks – turn to Intinor for mission-critical, contribution-quality delivery over the internet because they know we are completely reliable. They recognise we have always been at the forefront of the technology, and we continue to innovate in response to the market’s demands.”

Intinor is a leader thanks to its innovative and unique software tools, including its own proprietary Bifrost transport protocol. Using very sophisticated forward error correction and retransmission algorithms, this gives unchallenged stability and robustness. With network bonding, Intinor provides extended bandwidth and a greatly enhanced security of service, thanks to its ability to use multiple transport fabrics. Importantly, Intinor provides true point-to-point delivery, without the need to bounce through the cloud, which slashes latency and boosts resilience.

This is now enhanced yet further with the addition of redundant SRT streaming, creating very high resilience by sending two separate streams over different internet providers and signal paths. The necessary seamless switching is incorporated with SMPTE ST2022-7 in the Intinor Direkt series for easy implementation. Intinor Direkt is fully compatible with content providers using different SRT encoders and routers.

Under the same platform, Intinor has expanded its support to include open standard RTP and RTP over SRT. With Intinor’s seamless protocol switching capability, users can establish redundancy by utilising one path via satellite feed and the other through the internet.

In response to user demands for even higher quality, Intinor is also showcasing a new implementation of the HEVC/H.265 codec for Direkt link and Direkt router, allowing users to adjust parameters to achieve the result they need. Some may use it to get significantly higher quality over the H.264 bitrate; others may prefer to maintain quality at a lower bitrate, saving cost and simplifying the creation of a stable path.

“We are aware that providing high quality contribution links over IP is complex technology and, for many, a new language,” Intinor’s Lundstedt said. “But seeing is believing, particularly when it comes to video, so we invite visitors to MPTS to come and see the results we achieve.”

As well as the major software upgrades, Intinor is also launching a new hardware option, the Direkt link rack 4X. In a very compact 1U cabinet this features four SDI inputs and software encoders, with the possibility of expansion to eight. The Direkt link rack 4X runs the latest version of the core software, including the enhanced HEVC codec and redundant path streaming.

Intinor systems, based on open standards including SRT, RIST and NDI, ensure multi-vendor interoperability. See how simple and reliable high quality contribution links can be by visiting Intinor on the Zest Technologies stand, F47, at MPTS 2024.
