SUNNYVALE, Calif. — VITEC, a worldwide leading provider of powerful digital video solutions, will exhibit exciting new products and its professional-grade video technologies at the 2015 NAB Show, April 13-16 in the Las Vegas Convention Center. Visitors to VITEC’s booth SL6305 can also register for a chance to win a GoPro camera.

The VITEC booth will feature live demonstrations of the company’s innovative, advanced video products including:

PORTABLE HEVC ENCODER: VITEC introduces MGW Ace — the world’s first 100 percent -based HEVC appliance for encoding and streaming. MGW Ace is a portable, compact appliance featuring HEVC/H.265 bandwidth-efficient compression as well as legacy H.264 capabilities. Its wide selection of I/Os and low power consumption using VITEC’s HEVC compression chip make it a perfect solution for streaming video, audio, and KLV metadata while in the field and on the move.

IPTV AND BROADCAST MONITORING SOLUTION: VITEC’s award-winning EZ TV IPTV system is now equipped with a new add-on for IPTV and Broadcast Monitoring. EZ TV offers 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 and alerts ensuring video, audio, and metadata services are delivered reliably to users.

ZERO DELAY STREAMING: MGW Sprint is the world's fastest MPEG-4 H.264 HD codec. This professional-grade IPTV appliance, with the ability to encode and decode in under 10 milliseconds, can stream full HD 1080p60 video and audio point-to-point or point-to-multipoint with less than one video frame of delay — practically matching the latency of hardwired video systems. Also on display will be the new and improved MGW portable encoder family, including Premium, Nano, Nano TOUGH, and Pico, all of which now support Zixi error-correction technology.

PORTABLE RECORDERS: VITEC’s Focus FS-H50/60/70 are versatile portable H.264 standard and high definition recorders for workflows and applications requiring video quality and optimized video file size. Ideal applications include sports events, breaking news, dailies, meetings and training, surveillance, and online video sharing.

ARCHIVING SOLUTION: The VITEC Proxsys PX-Series media asset management system enables organizations to edit, archive, and share valuable media assets efficiently and securely both within an organization and with credentialed third parties. Within a smooth, user-friendly workflow, Proxsys PX-Series provides the functionality and features required to safeguard high- and low-resolution video as well as audio, graphic, and data files.

HEVC DECODER CARD: 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).

4K MOSAIC GENERATOR: VITEC’s Extensor™ SDI4Mosaic is the simplest way to connect up to four SDI feeds on a single mosaic display. SDI4Mosaic converts a 4K HD-SDI video source to a standard HDMI monitor.

“We are proud to present MGW Ace, the first portable hardware-based HEVC encoder,” said Philippe Wetzel, CEO of VITEC. “VITEC has always been at the forefront of digital video technologies, and our new HEVC hardware compression appliance 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.”
