VITEC Ready To Unveil New Video Encoding, Streaming Tech


VITEC, the French company specializing in advanced video encoding and streaming solutions, is ready to roll out the next generation of the HEVC Gen2 codec for the MGW Ace 4:2:2 10-bit HEVC encoder and MGW Ace decoder solution.

It is also set to release the latest version of itse 4K HEVC MGW Vision encoder; broadcast-grade IPTV and digital signage platform EZ TV; and its PX Media Library media management solution.

IBC2017 attendees can see the new tech firsthand at the event in Amsterdam, Holland, set for Sept. 15-19. VITEC will be in booth 7.G23.

The MGW Ace Encoder and Decoder is an entirely portable, hardware-based end-to-end 4:2:2 10-bit HEVC encode/decode solution. Using VITEC’s second-generation HEVC codec (Gen2), the MGW Ace encoder provides HEVC bandwidth compression, and H.264 encoding/decoding capabilities.

For point-to-point applications, when paired with MGW Ace decoder, the solution delivers bandwidth-efficient video streaming over any network, including the internet, with embedded Pro-MPEG FEC or Zixi stream protection technologies.

The MGW Vision delivers an UHD IPTV contribution solution for several markets, including broadcast, in-house IPTV, and enterprise. This IPTV encoder is designed with support for 4:2:2 10-bits.

VITEC’s EZ TV allows an organization to centrally manage IPTV and signage content from a single interface, and automate video streaming workflows and signage campaigns over existing IP infrastructures.
