PARIS -- Sept. 15, 2017 --

 VITEC, a worldwide leader in advanced video encoding and streaming solutions, today announced that it is making it more affordable to stream and distribute 4K content at an MSRP of only $25,000. The MGW Vision real-time encoder produces HEVC bandwidth-efficient 4K IPTV streams for use in broadcast centers, in-house IPTV applications, sports, and live events.

"As 4K/UHD gains more traction, the expenses associated with encoding and streaming 4K/UHD content are still cost-prohibitive for many organizations due to the high premiums charged by encoding companies for their 4K solutions. The high capital expenditure associated with establishing a 4K streaming workflow is a major barrier to market entry," said Philippe Wetzel, president and CEO at VITEC. "With the extremely low price point of the MGW Vision, we're broadening the access to VITEC's 4K solutions and making it more accessible for organizations to launch broadcast-grade 4K services than ever before."

VITEC's MGW Vision is a compact 1-RU appliance featuring 100 percent hardware HEVC/H.265 encoding in both 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 modes, generating pristine 4K quality. The encoder supports streaming a single UHD or four HD HEVC channels ingested from four 3G-SDI inputs and can also store encoded content while streaming onto the network.
