At IBC2015, Vitec will introduce its MGW Ace appliance, the industry's first 100 per cent hardware-based HEVC portable device for encoding and streaming video.
Powerful yet compact, the device features HEVC (H.265) bandwidth-efficient compression as well as legacy H.264 capabilities — supporting today's diverse and demanding field-based content requirements within settings such as live news broadcasts, sports venues, or secure applications within military environments.
Equipped with a wide selection of I/Os and offering low power consumption using VITEC's HEVC compression chip, the flexible device is ideal for any high-quality audio or video streaming, as well as KLV metadata requirements whether in the field or on the move.
Also being shown for the first time at IBC is the all-new MGW D265 Portable H.265 & H.264 IP Decoder. Specifically designed to provide decoding for any IPTV and full-motion-video application, the device delivers a compact footprint, best-in-class connectivity options, and ultra-low delay.
Vitec will be showcasing its award-winning EZ TV IPTV system, which allows any facility to deliver live, on-demand, or recorded video over their existing IP infrastructure. Using the EZ TV Web Portal, administrators can easily create, manage, and distribute video assets while the solution's browser-based EZ TV Player uses a flexible digital video codec to offer CPU-efficient quality playback of IPTV streams across networks.
Alongside these products, Vitec will also use IBC to showcase its enhanced MGW Sprint, the world's fastest MPEG-4 H.264 HD encoder/decoder appliance, as well as its Focus FS-H50/60/70 Portable Proxy Recorders, Proxsys PX-Series Media Asset Management System and Archiving Solution, and Extensor SDI4Mosaic 4K Mosaic Generator.
