VITEC will display a range of streaming solutions throughout the booth:

* EZ TV IPTV & Digital Signage Platform

A scalable solution for in-house distribution of TV feeds and private video content and for managing IPTV streams and digital signage campaigns. Ideal for sports, entertainment, education, and enterprise facilities, VITEC's EZ TV IPTV and Digital Signage Platform allows organizations to centrally manage IPTV and signage content, automate video streaming workflows and signage campaigns, and deliver a cutting-edge streaming experience to desktop users, TVs, and mobile devices. Utilizing VITEC's hardware-based IPTV and signage end-points, users benefit from low-latency playback, real-time updating of electronic program guide, video-on-demand, time-shifted TV, user-controlled mosaic viewing of multiple channels in any format including H.264 and HEVC up to 4K, and real-time analytics. The integrated digital signage features offer easy-to-use signage authoring, administration, and analytics.

* Second-Generation HEVC Technology – World's Best HEVC Video Quality

VITEC will demonstrate its second-generation HEVC codec (GEN2) powering its MGW Ace encoder -- the industry's first portable HEVC hardware-based encoder, multi-award winning and field-proven streaming appliance. GEN2 is setting new industry standards in quality, ahead of the competition in HEVC codec efficiency by 20 percent. A white paper comparing video quality of leading encoders can be found at hevc.vitec.com.

* Point-To-Point HEVC Streaming Solution

The award-winning MGW Ace Encoder and MGW Ace Decoder is the industry's first entirely portable, hardware-based end-to-end 4:2:2 HEVC encode/decode solution. Using VITEC's proprietary second-generation HEVC Codec (GEN2), the powerful, yet compact MGW Ace Encoder provides an unmatched level of pristine video quality. In addition to offering unprecedented HEVC bandwidth-efficient compression, the MGW Ace Encoder offers H.264 encoding capabilities to support legacy applications. 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. For point-to-point applications, when paired with MGW Ace Decoder, the solution delivers bandwidth-efficient, artifact-free video streaming over any network, including the internet, with embedded Pro-MPEG FEC or Zixi™ error-correction capabilities.

* House of Worship Multi-Site Video Streaming Solution

VITEC's House of Worship Streaming Solution is now integrated with Renewed Vision™ ProVideoServer™. This integration allows churches to easily record one or more high-quality encoded streams from the main campus, complete with embedded time code and multi-channel audio, and play back those streams at the satellite campus at any time. The solution bundles VITEC portable encoders/decoders with the Zixi™ error-free streaming protocol, enabling reliable, cost-effective streaming for HOWs of any size.

On June 15, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. VITEC will present an InfoComm CTS Training Session titled "IP Video Distribution – IPTV & Digital Signage for Large Public Venues."
