Hybrid Encoding Technology


Digital video encoding is a foundation of much of today’s broadcast and media industry, and is a contributing technology in public safety and other important fields.

But encoders are not created equal—choosing the right encoder for your use cases requires careful consideration of operational constraints and architecture trade-offs.

Hardware, software, or hybrid?

Hybrid-Encoding-Technology-Black-Logo-1Many encoding applications are best-served by a hybrid architecture which combines the speed and efficiency of hardware with the flexibility, adaptability, and upgradeability of software.

Dejero has developed a highly specialized Hybrid Encoding Technology ideally suited for low-latency, live video contribution scenarios.

This hybrid architecture surrounds a fast, efficient hardware encoder—optimized with proprietary technologies and techniques— with a field-upgradeable software pipeline which maximizes video quality by dynamically adapting encoding in real time.

Hybrid Encoding Technology

The features of Dejero's Hybrid Encoding Technology combine to efficiently deliver low-latency, high-quality video even in the most challenging field conditions.

Hardware-based video encoder

Highly optimized video encoder which employs proprietary techniques to ensure ultra-low latency, power-efficient encoding

Auto-scaler

Automatically scales video to maximize resolution which can be reliably encoded and transported

Resolution optimizer

Ensures high video quality by automatically incorporating Content Feedback and Transport Feedback in real-time to determine maximum resolution (spatial and temporal) which can be encoded and transported

I-frame request

Reduces required transmission bandwidth and maximizes goodput by automatically requesting I-frames only when needed

Content feedback / Content complexity analyzer

Provides real-time feedback from the hardware encoder about the complexity of the content being encoded

Award-winning technology

Our Hybrid Encoding Technology works in concert with our Smart Blending Technology to form a tightly integrated system which responds in real time to changes in network quality and video content.

This has helped transform how broadcasters contribute live content from the field, and is now being used by public safety agencies and other organizations to send high-quality video around the globe.

We are proud to have been awarded two prestigious Technology & Engineering Emmy® Awards for ‘pioneering a reliable transmission method for live contribution and distribution TV links’ in 2019 and ‘video over bonded cellular Internet (VoCIP) technology’ in 2020.
