Foccus Digital presenting the Soliton Zao-S H.265 mobile encoder at SET EXPO 2017

Foccus Digital and Palma International Technology will be presenting the Soliton Zao-S H.265/HEVC encoder at the SET EXPO 2017 from August 22- 24 in Sao Paulo.  Ultra lightweight, compact and portable, Zao-S can be body mounted or connected to bikes, cameras, or drones allowing users to stream high quality video even in challenging bandwidth situations.  Soliton’s Zao-S is ideal for all mobile streaming, live sports and journalism applications.   High quality video and audio is transmitted via 3G/4G/Wi-Fi networks directly to a server, or can be retransmitted to Youtube, Facebook, or Wowza.

Soliton’s Zao-S mobile encoder is their 2nd generation H.265 technology.  Soliton encoders are efficient and operate with lower bandwidth requirements, robust performance, and better video quality.  These improvements enhance flexibility, decrease operating costs, offering broadcasters greater versatility and mobility when transmitting from the field anywhere in the world.   The Smart-telecaster Zao encoders have been deployed worldwide with Globosat whose international operations require reliable, cost effective, quality video contribution, and transmission stability in bandwidth-constrained environments.  The Soliton Zao encoder excels in each these categories, and combined with its pre-eminent portability and usability, has raised the bar for state-of-the-art transmission.

Soliton’s Zao-S encoder includes their proprietary RASCOW technology which has been field tested worldwide and proven to be exceptionally stable.  Operating with only three 4G SIM cards Zao-S offers efficient transmission, reducing bandwidth requirements by up to 50% compared to H.264-based alternatives.  “Soliton is a pioneer in H.265 video compression, and their low-latency encoder technologies have been field proven by major broadcasters for nearly four years.” “The Zao-S encoder is providing broadcasters with a distinct operational advantage, providing cost effective operations with consistently better video quality and reliability worldwide” said Cesar Donato, Director at Foccus Digital.

Foccus Digital will be demonstrating the Soliton Smart-telecaster Zao and Zao-S encoders at SET EXPO 2017 booth 46 at the Expo Center Norte August 22- 24 2017. Additionally, Foccus Digital will be presenting new solutions from partners Canon, Aviat, GatesAir, Grass Valley, DTC, ERI, Palma Technology, and cable company Belden.
