EGT Blends Up an IPTV Encoder

Orlando, Fla. -- EGT developed an Internet-protocol-video encoder capable of handling up to 36 MPEG-2 channels, 18 MPEG-4 channels or a combination of each.

The VIPr-IPx video processor, packaged in a 12-rack-unit-high chassis, includes hot-swappable processing cards and fan trays, redundant and hot-swappable power supplies and redundant IP media ports.

The system provides preprocessing, embedded multiplexing, transcoding, IP-media aggregation, DTMF and cue-trigger detection features. The VIPr-IPx also includes options for digital program insertion, variable-bit-rate encoding and Pro-MPEG forward error correction, according to EGT.

The VIPr-IPx is built on EGT’s VIPr platform for modular, software-programmable video processors built on a digital-signal-processor engine. Atlanta-based EGT introduced the VIPr line in January.
