On display at the show will be VITEC’s EZ TV IPTV and digital signage platform, the proven solution for in-house distribution of TV feeds and private video content and for managing IPTV streams and digital signage campaigns across facilities. It allows any organization to create eye-catching digital signs, centrally manage IPTV and signage content from a single interface, and automate video streaming workflows and signage campaigns over existing IP infrastructure.
VITEC’s hardware-based IPTV and signage end-points benefit users by providing low-latency playback, real-time updating of the electronic program guide, video-on-demand content with new assets updating while events take place, time-shifted TV, live video access from PCs and mobile devices, and user-controlled mosaic viewing of multiple channels. The integrated digital signage features offer easy-to-use signage authoring, administration, and analytics.
VITEC will also showcase its point-to-point HEVC streaming solution. The MGW Ace encoder and decoder is the industry’s first entirely portable, hardware-based end-to-end 4:2:2 HEVC encode/decode solution. Using VITEC’s proprietary second-generation HEVC codec (GEN2), the powerful, yet compact, MGW Ace encoder provides an unmatched level of pristine video quality.
In addition to offering HEVC bandwidth-efficient compression, the MGW Ace encoder provides H.264 encoding capabilities to support legacy applications. With a wide selection of I/Os and low power consumption using VITEC’s HEVC compression chip, it’s a perfect solution for streaming video, audio, and KLV metadata while in the field or on the move.
For point-to-point applications, when paired with MGW Ace decoder, the solution delivers bandwidth-efficient, artifact-free video streaming over any network, including the internet, with embedded Pro-MPEG FEC or Zixi error-correction capabilities.
Attendees will also see 4K HEVC encoding/decoding by VITEC. Using the latest HEVC compression, the MGW Vision delivers an UHD IPTV contribution solution for several markets including broadcast, in-house IPTV, and enterprise — anywhere UHD is critical. This IPTV encoder is designed with support for 4:2:2 10 bits, providing flawless video quality that is especially important for any broadcast application. It provides one channel of 4K or four channels of HD. When paired with the MGW Decoder, the solution enables 4K60p 4:2:2 10 bits point-to-point streaming.
