Apologies if this is the wrong list to post this.

People here might be interested to know that an Open Source broadcast encoder is being written. It uses the x264 encoder for H.264 encoding. x262 is also in development for MPEG-2 Encoding. There is a large Scandinavian IPTV/cable provider and a US TV station keen to get this in production as soon as possible (mainly for quality/price/control reasons). The idea is that the encoder will have all the features that a hardware encoder would have and be simple to get started with but have major flexibility.

A proposed feature list is here: https://github.com/kierank/broadcastencoder/wiki

Feel free to ask if you have any questions.
