Hi,

I'm Andrea Venturi, i've been working with my colleague Lorenzo Pallara,
since 2004, on a free DVB TS server software called JustDvb-It. Then
early this year we have been start-upping a company doing the same stuff.

So today, after some more development, we are proud to announce the
birth of OpenCaster
<http://www.avalpa.com/the-key-values/15-free-software/33-opencaster>
version 1.0, the first release after Avalpa start up.

OpenCaster is still a free (free as freedom
<http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-2.0.html>) software for transport
stream generation and management useful for many purposes: carousel
server, PSI table generator, datacasting, MPEG2 "poor man" playout system.

OpenCaster of course, grows on top of JustDvb-It
<http://www.cineca.tv/labs/mhplab/JustDVb-It%202.0.html>, the previous
free software we were carrying on in Cineca (kudos for them to give us
this great opportunity!)

Actually there are three main new features :

    * *TS conversion (with right PCR) of ffmpeg
      <http://ffmpeg.mplayerhq.hu/> encoded PS (PCR stamping in ffmpeg
      TS is someway  broken!)*
    * *PCR stamping for Transport Stream bitrate change*
    * *hot multplexing of many SPTS in a single MPTS*

Many more smaller ones are well embedded in the software (please read
all the description files like *Readme* and *CHANGES*)

We made a manual too, after many requests. It's a 70 page user manual
and should be useful to ramp up quickly
