Re/Kast today announced the launch of Re/Kast Live™, a real-time stream transcoding platform designed to support the rebroadcasting of TV and Radio for use on PCs, TVs and 3G mobile phones.

With the delivery of live programming over the Internet becoming an increasingly important source of revenue for broadcasters, many are realizing that their legacy infrastructure is not flexible enough to support the re-encoding of live video and audio for Internet use. Re/Kast Live™ enables broadcasters to leverage off their existing MPEG-2 infrastructure and rebroadcast live TV and Radio over the Internet.

"Supporting all popular web and mobile formats as standard, Re/Kast Live™ enables our customers to simultaneously generate multiple video or audio streams meant for use in Mobile TV, Internet TV or IPTV applications." said Ben Lippolt, Senior Product Manager. "Re/Kast Live™ is an extremely versatile rebroadcasting platform; with no limitation on the number of input or output streams that a single instance of the Re/Kast Live™ application can handle, it's one of the most flexible and affordable transcoding solutions available on the market today."

"Re/Kast has a wealth of experience in the broadcasting world and Re/Kast Live™ has been developed to fill a major gap in that market," said Ian Kain who has led the Re/Kast project team developing the platform. "The future of TV and Radio broadcasting is the Internet and Re/Kast Live™ allows broadcasters to confidently transition towards this future."
