 VITEC, a worldwide leader in advanced video encoding and streaming solutions, today unveiled the MGW Ace Encoder firmware v2.0, the next generation of the industry's first entirely portable, award-winning, hardware-based HEVC encoder. Powered by the new HEVC GEN2 codec, the MGW Ace Encoder provides the industry's best HEVC video quality of up to 4:2:2 10-bits HEVC encoding and surpasses the second-best competitor by 20 percent to meet the quality requirements of demanding broadcast applications. Along with delivering pristine broadcast-quality video streams and ultra-low latency – down to 160 ms glass to glass when paired with the MGW Ace Decoder – version 2.0 features a new interface that allows users to enhance video streams with several pre-configured profiles to match their application. This intuitive approach ensures that the MGW Ace Encoder can easily be set up to deliver the best streaming performance for any application.
