VITEC Unveils CCW Portfolio

News Image
VITEC has announced that it will demonstrate its range of portable H.264 Encoding and Streaming appliances at Content & Communications World (CCW), 11–12 November.

Featuring Zixi and ProMPEG error-correction technologies, VITEC's professional series of portable HEVC and H.264 encoding and streaming appliances – the MGW Premium, MGW Nano, and MGW Pico – are a field-proven range of compact and pocket-sized streaming appliances designed for low-latency streaming of HD/SD content in the most demanding of environments. Designed for stationary and field applications, the encoders ingest and stream video, audio, and critical metadata from any source, anytime, anywhere.

The MGW Premium is VITEC's highest density unit capable of encoding up to two HD sources or up to four SD sources simultaneously. An all-in-one appliance, it encodes and streams TV feeds from HDMI-based set-top boxes, desktop screen imagery, or other analog sources.

Designed for single-source applications, the MGW Nano is a more compact unit featuring HD/SD/SDI and HDMI. It is offered with standard connectors or in an airborne certified version called MGW Nano Tough, which features MIL-STD 38999 interfaces and enhanced environmental ratings.

The MGW Pico is the smallest and most powerful H.264 HD/SD encoder, at the size of a credit card. Weighing less than seven ounces, MGW Pico features HD/SD-SDI and composite inputs with the same compression quality and capability as the MGW Premium and Nano in an ultra-small form factor for manned and unmanned vehicles.

New for CCW, VITEC will display the MGW Ace appliance, a 100% hardware-based HEVC portable device for encoding and streaming video. The device features HEVC (H.265) bandwidth-efficient compression as well as legacy H.264 capabilities, while a selection of I/Os and low power consumption using VITEC's HEVC compression chip make it suitable for streaming video, audio, and KLV metadata while in the field or on the move. When coupled with the MGW D265 portable HEVC IP decoder, it becomes an end-to-end, on-the-go streaming solution for broadcast, military, medical, education, enterprise, telco, government, transportation, sports, and entertainment.

VITEC will also showcase its 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 create, manage, and distribute video assets while the solution's browser-based EZ TV Player uses the market's digital video codec to offer CPU-efficient quality playback of IPTV streams across networks. Equipped with a new add-on for IPTV settings, the solution complements any IPTV deployment with quality and compliance dashboards as well as instant alerts, ensuring video, audio, and metadata services are delivered reliably to users.

Michael Chorpash, Vice President of Sales at VITEC, said: "The consistent growth of CCW each year and its draw to key decision-makers from high-profile customers makes attending the show invaluable to us. That it remains a more intimate show gives us a greater opportunity for direct conversations and meetings with industry leaders. This year, we're very excited to bring new innovations as well as upgraded legacy products to the CCW floor, including the MGW Portable Encoder family that now offers Zixi error-correction; MGW Ace, the world's first portable HEVC encoder; and our popular EZ TV IPTV delivery system."
