Vitec (Booth SL6305) will launch the industry’s first entirely portable HEVC hardware encoder. The MGW Ace takes the benefits of HEVC encoding out of server rooms and into the field by integrating a high-quality, low-delay hardware codec into a professional appliance.

MGW Ace boasts Vitec’s real-time H.265 hardware-based compression chip; a wide range of inputs; KLV/STANAG metadata processing for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance applications; and a secondary MPEG-4 H.264 chip to support legacy decoders. MGW Ace is suitable for high-efficiency broadcast-quality 4:2:2 and 4:2:0 HD streaming and is designed to support demanding and diverse video streaming.

For live news broadcasting from the field, point-to-point contribution of HD video, live streaming from sports venues, or disseminating mission-critical military imagery, the MGW Ace is specifically engineered to satisfy demand for pristine real-time video anywhere anytime. Using the encoder’s bandwidth-efficient HEVC/H.265 streams, broadcasters, corporate IT, military forces, and government agencies can reduce operating expenses related to video projects with high-bandwidth utilization while managing increasing demand for video services across LANs and WANs.
