Contribution and Transcoding for Pristine Video Quality 
Thomson Video Networks will present a demonstration of world-class contribution, transcoding, and multiplexing technologies working together to deliver the high levels of multi-screen video quality required for premium channel broadcasting. Featured products will include the market-leading ViBE(TM) CP6000 and CP6100 contribution platforms, supporting an unprecedented eight HD channels per 1-RU chassis and industry-leading compression performance; the ViBE EM4000, the industry's premium encoder offering a density of eight HD MPEG-4 AVC channels in a 1-RU chassis; and the NetProcessor multiplexer and video processor.

High-Density Transcoding
At CCBN 2015, Thomson Video Networks will demonstrate high-density compression of long-tail content with its award-winning ViBE(TM) XT1000 Xtream Transcoder. An all-new video transcoder for OTT, cable, and telco applications, the ViBE XT1000 enables media companies, video service providers, and broadcasters to launch new turnaround services rapidly and cost-effectively. The ViBE XT1000 supports up to 54 HD channels or 180 SD channels with transcoding from any format to any format including MPEG-2 and MPEG-4/AVC, making it ideal for linear broadcasts on cable, IPTV, DTH, and DTTV services, as well as multi-screen delivery. 

Live Ultra HD Encoding and Playout
Thomson Video Networks will showcase next-generation video delivery using the emerging High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) compression standard to enable UHDTV playout and multimedia broadcast multicast services (eMBMS). The solution, powered by the ViBE(TM) VS7000 HEVC encoder, Sapphire MPEG stream server, and Amethyst redundancy switch, has already been successfully deployed by major global satellite operators to provide a rich UHDTV picture at up to 60 frames per second and in 10-bit color. Thomson Video Networks will also display premium HEVC UHD content protection using watermarking technology.
