Vantrix Offers iPhone Dynamic Bit Rate Adaptation

Montreal-based Vantrix, which develops mobile video optimization and delivery solutions, announced Dynamic Bit Rate Adaptation (DBRA) for the Apple iPhone.

The Vantrix Media Broadcaster adapts and optimizes video streams to any end device -- mobile, Web (PC), or digital TV. The solution captures, ingests, encodes, adapts, and delivers any video content regardless of format, network, and device. The 8.0 version responds directly to the explosive growth of the iPhone.

iPhone video delivery is now enhanced with a patented DBRA mechanism that allows the forcing of the bit rate at which the iPhone connects to a video feed, thereby providing the best user experience for the available network capacity and at the same time substantially reducing cost of video delivery.
