Thomson Video Networks at Convergence India 2016

In booth C36, Thomson Video Networks will highlight its Behind Every Screen(R) approach, combining on-premises and cloud-based resources to create an all-encompassing video infrastructure for ingest/playout, branding, ad insertion, encoding/transcoding, and packaging technologies. This approach enables media companies to deliver broadcast-grade, highly reliable, and future-proof multi-screen delivery solutions that can offer superior picture quality at the highest density and lowest bandwidth. 

Live, File-Based, and Contribution Solutions for Ultra HD
Thomson Video Networks will feature its ViBE(R) 4K encoding solution for Ultra HD (UHD) broadcasting, which enables media enterprises to leverage high-efficiency video coding (HEVC) to provide an optimal video experience to consumers through live compression of UHD sources at up to 60 frames per second and in 10-bit color. Housed in a 1-RU chassis, this latest addition to the company's robust portfolio of UHD solutions offers the industry's most compact live 4K encoder.

Best-of-Breed Channel Origination and Ad Insertion
Thomson Video Networks' FUZE-1 Playout System is a completely new paradigm that integrates the traditional playout functions of a channel in a box with premium-quality encoding and transcoding for broadcast and OTT delivery. Ideal for applications such as ad insertion, branding, disaster recovery, and EAS insertion, FUZE-1 provides a rich playout infrastructure together with the ability to process audio and video either directly in the compressed domain or by going back to baseband and re-encoding.
