VITEC’s Focus: IPTV, Digital Signage Platform, HEVC Innovations



VITEC, known for its advanced video encoding and streaming solutions, is putting a spotlight on its new video wall and media library capabilities of its broadcast-grade EZ TV IPTV & Digital Signage Platform, the MGW Ace encode and decode solution, and MGW Diamond, the compact and portable quad-channel HEVC encoder now available within VITEC’s broad HEVC encoding and decoding product portfolio.

The grand stage for VITEC will be IBC2018, Sept. 14-18, in Amsterdam.

VITEC will demonstrate its HEVC video contribution and distribution tools with the new MGW Diamond encoder, its MGW Ace encoder and decoder, and its VITEC Playout Server. Making its European debut at the IBC2018, the MGW Diamond adds quad-channel HEVC encoding to the VITEC HEVC family.

The VITEC Playout Server provides a platform to manage, capture, preview, and distribute IPTV streams, complementing VITEC’s point-to-point HEVC contribution ecosystem.

At IBC2018, VITEC will also demonstrate its latest codec innovation for its MGW Ace encoder and MGW Ace decoder pair, with ultra-low-latency streaming down to 30ms glass-to-glass.

Also getting attention is the EZ TV IPTV & Digital Signage Platform with newly integrated media library capabilities, which adds a meta-solution for media professionals to tag, edit, organize, store, and share media files.

“This open system is easily adaptable to industry-specific workflows and allows all types of media to be filed consistently with the highest degree of security,” VITEC says. “In addition, the media library features a deep-learning auto-annotation tool and a video stock footage management application with responsive design and mobile device support.”

In addition, VITEC will highlight its new series of video wall processors as part of the enterprise-grade EZ TV IPTV & Digital Signage Platform. The video wall processors are 100-percent hardware-based; feature low-latency, native playback of IPTV streams up to 4K; and support interactive content, video, and imagery transformations — all managed and scheduled from EZ TV Platforms’ intuitive software. VITEC’s high-performance video wall processors can power up to four discrete video walls and more than 50 displays from a single unit. Advanced features include support for nonstandard layouts and resolutions of TVs and LED walls, edge blending, and eye-catching effects.
