DVBLogic and 08Software have announced that they are partnering up to deliver live TV streaming without transcoding for iOS devices.  This is especially useful for users that run DVBLogic on NAS units or other low-powered PC’s where transcoding is too intensive to be useful.  Users will install the 08Software video player app 8Player Lite as well as version 1.3 of the DVBLogic client-side app.  Live TV streaming will work for iPad 2 and later hardware.  Here is the press release from DVBLogic:

DVBLogic partners with 08Software to offer TV playback on iOS devices without video transcoding!

DVBLogic and 08Software have partnered together to enable DVBLink iOS app playing live TV stream without the need for video transcoding on the server side. This new feature is particularly important for DVBLink users who run server on network attached storage devices and low-spec/low-power PCs, which are not capable of re-coding the video stream.

This new functionality is available in the version 1.3 of DVBLink iOS client app and requires installation of the free 8Player Lite app from the AppStore. Depending on the bitrate and video compression some channels can be played artifact-free on the IPads and iPhones from 2nd generation and above.

This looks like a really nice feature; if you are running DVBLogic, give it a try.

The DVBLink app for Android has been updated to version 1.1.5.
