SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Nov. 21, 2016 -- VITEC, a worldwide leader in advanced video encoding and streaming solutions, today announced it will exhibit the latest version of its IPTV solution along with its award-winning portable and end-to-end streaming appliances at Government Video Expo in booth 510 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C., from Dec. 7-8.
"Broadcast-quality content and comprehensive video management capabilities are paramount to the success of military operations and government agencies," said Dan Quinn, federal sales director at VITEC. "VITEC is strongly committed to meeting the unique requirements of these organizations, providing them with award-winning, innovative streaming and media management tools to solve complexities and keep pace with the quickly evolving nature of these installations."
For the first time, VITEC will show its EZ TV 8.0 IPTV platform. The turn-key system features new enhancements and comprehensive digital signage capabilities, allowing organizations to create eye-catching digital signs, centrally manage IPTV and signage content from a single interface, and automate video streaming workflows and signage campaigns from powerful, hardware-based IPTV and signage end-points that provide low latency 1080p60 playback and the reliability required for large-scale deployments.
Also on display will be VITEC's credit card-sized MGW Pico TOUGH, the world's smallest H.264 HD/SD encoding solution and streaming appliance. Weighing less than 400 grams, MGW Pico TOUGH sets a new standard of performance for manned and unmanned airborne platforms, military vehicles, and ground units. The MGW Pico TOUGH consumes less than 7 watts of power for 1080p encoding with KLV/STANAG metadata and features simultaneous, low-latency streaming of two sources from HD-SDI and analog composite signals, JITC-compliant metadata processing, AES encryption, error-correction technology, real-time resolution scaling, and image cropping. The rugged enclosure uses MIL-DTL-38999 connectors and is certified for extreme environmental conditions.
VITEC will also highlight its MGW Ace appliance, the industry-leading 100-percent hardware-based HEVC portable device for encoding and streaming video, and the MGW D265, a portable HEVC IP decoder. The powerful yet compact MGW Ace provides pristine video quality with its HEVC (H.265) bandwidth-efficient compression as well as legacy H.264 encoding capabilities. With a wide selection of I/Os and low-power consumption using VITEC's HEVC compression chip, it's a perfect solution for streaming video, audio, and KLV metadata while in the field or on the move. When the MGW Ace is coupled with the MGW D265, these devices become an end-to-end, on-the-go streaming solution with embedded Pro-MPEG FEC or Zixi(TM) error-correction capabilities.
