Vitec Video Innovations has announced it will unveil the world's first portable HEVC encoder and IPTV solutions at the 2015 NAB Show.

MGW Ace is the industry's first 100-percent hardware-based HEVC portable device for encoding and streaming video. It features HEVC/H.265 bandwidth-efficient compression as well as legacy H.264 capabilities. Its range of I/Os and low power consumption using VITEC's HEVC compression chip are aimed at streaming video, audio, and KLV metadata while in the field or on the move.

Vitec's EZ TV IPTV System is equipped with a new add-on for IPTV and Broadcast Monitoring, offering real-time video analysis and statistical tools to monitor, log, and generate performance reports for all IPTV streams. The new EZ TV add-on complements any IPTV deployment with quality and compliance dashboards as well as alerts.

The MGW Sprint is described by Vitec as "the world's fastest MPEG-4 H.264 HD codec," featuring the ability to encode and decode in under 10 milliseconds. The IPTV device can stream full-HD 1080p60 video and audio, point-to-point or point-to-multipoint, with less than one video frame of delay. Also on display will be VITEC's full line of MGW portable encoders, including Premium, Nano, Nano TOUGH, and Pico, all of which now support Zixi error-correction technology.

The VITEC Focus FS-H50/60/70 are versatile, portable H.264 standard and HD recorders for workflows and applications requiring substantial video quality and optimised video file size. With a resolution range up to 1080p30 and bit rates up to 8 Mb/s, the three models include composite and analog audio inputs, an HDMI input, and an HD/SD-SDI input, respectively.

Proxsys PX-Series media asset management system enables organisations to edit, archive, and share valuable media assets both within an organisation and with credentialed third parties. Proxsys PX-Series provides functionality and features to safeguard high- and low-resolution video as well as audio, graphic, and data files.

HDM850+ is VITEC's HEVC/H.265 professional decoder card featuring back-to-back, seamless, and frame-accurate playback in HEVC, H.264, and MPEG-2 over 3G-SDI or HDMI. HDM850+ is designed for end users as well as integrators (SDK available).

Extensor SDI4Mosaic connects up to four SDI feeds on a single mosaic display and converts a 4K HD-SDI video source to a standard HDMI monitor. it automatically creates a mosaic of up to four video channels and displays on compatible monitors. It also allows the comparison of two video channels and displays them in various layouts. The OSD Status gives all status information super-imposed directly on the video output signal.

"At the 2015 NAB Show, we are proud to present the world's first portable hardware-based HEVC encoder: MGW Ace," said Philippe Wetzel, CEO of Vitec. "Vitec has always been at the forefront of digital video technologies, and this new product demonstrates the company's strategic decision to lead the HEVC revolution and set the bar high with the most exciting HEVC platform for field use."
