VITEC to Showcase Multi-Site Video Contribution Solutions at IBC2018

September 12, 2018

PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 12, 2018--VITEC, a worldwide leader in advanced video encoding and streaming solutions, will demonstrate its broadcast-grade HEVC Multi-Site Video Contribution Solutions, including the fully featured MGW Ace hardware-based HEVC encode/decode solution and its Playout Server, on Stand 7.C34 at IBC2018, Sept. 14-18, in Amsterdam.

“As video management for broadcast, government, sports, and entertainment becomes increasingly more complex with a multitude of video streams coming in from all over the world, more and more of our customers have requested a simplified and reliable solution to deliver and distribute encoded video feeds,” said Richard Bernard, VITEC product manager. “VITEC’s Playout Server gives customers one hub to capture all available IPTV protected streams transmitted from encoders in the field and intuitively distribute them inside or outside their network. It fully complements VITEC’s HEVC ecosystem, enabling the growing demand for multi-site video contribution and distribution.”

VITEC’s Playout Server provides an efficient platform to manage, capture, and preview IPTV-protected streams transmitted by VITEC encoders from any location, and distribute them within a target network, whether for rebroadcast, video-on-demand, or any other application. When used in conjunction with VITEC’s MGW Ace Encoder, the server is ideal for high-quality, low-bandwidth, reliable contribution over the internet without the use of expensive and less flexible fiber or satellite transmission infrastructure, leading to a dramatic reduction of operating expenses.

VITEC will also feature the new capabilities of the award-winning MGW Ace point-to-point/point-to-multipoint HEVC streaming offering. The solution now supports low-latency HEVC streaming down to 65ms glass to glass, closed captioning, talkback for direct communication with team members, latency monitoring, and auto adaptive bitrate encoding for delivering the highest level of details in complex video content applications. The compact, powerful appliance uses VITEC’s second-generation 4:2:2 10-bit HEVC codec (GEN2+) for unmatched video quality and highly efficient bandwidth compression. Built-in advanced stream protection guarantees reliable video distribution over any network, including the internet.
