Enterprise IP video specialist VBrick Systems (http://www.vbrick.com) has announced enhancements to its comprehensive Enterprise Content Delivery Network (ECDN) platform.
The H.264 Distributed Media Engine (DME) ensures efficient distribution of live and on-demand streaming video content to diverse endpoints, across dispersed locations, according to VBrick Chief Operating Officer John Shaw. The DME’s Release 2.0 software can now transform and redistribute virtually any H.264 video stream, creating multiple streams of multiple video formats — simplifying video delivery to more users and their vast array of devices, he adds.
VBrick’s DME is the networking element of the VBrick Enterprise Video Architecture (VEVA), which spans video capture, distribution, play-out and overall video content management. The DME can be deployed at the edge of a network while being managed centrally by VBrick’s VEMS Mystro media management portal.
As the networking element, DME 2.0 delivers support for the latest video standards including HLS (aka Apple Adaptive), Flash, Smooth Streaming & Transport Stream. The latter, along with sophisticated KLV metadata, enables delivery of video that includes telemetry data required for security and defense applications, says Shaw.

Reinstalling the Dongle Driver
The license file corresponding to maximum streams and bandwidth you purchased is pre-installed on the server by VBrick. Under normal circumstances you will never have to re-install the license. When you purchase a release version of QuickVideo OnDemand Server, a dongle key with the proper settings is also included. This dongle key must be connected to any available USB port (front or rear) on the unit to enable video streaming through the server. The license dongle regulates the maximum video streaming throughput and the maximum number of simultaneous video streams. The license file is pre-installed on the VOD W server in the system32 folder. However, you will still need to reinstall the dongle driver if you ever need to reinstall the system.
Installing the Dongle Driver
To load the license with the dongle:
- Attach the dongle key to any available USB port and click Continue to run the Found New Hardware Wizard.
- Go to Start > Control Panel > InfoValue QuickVideo.
- Click on the License tab and click the Load License File button.
- After loading a valid license, click on Load Dongle Driver. This will load the dongle driver, restart the service, and load the new license.
If errors occur, click Run Diagnostics (on the license tab) and send the log file, the infovalue.lic file, and your dongle ID to VBrick Support Services. See VOD W Event Manager for more information.
