VITEC Shows Video Wall At InfoComm 2018

VITEC, California based video streaming technology provider, is exhibiting its video wall capability for EZ TV, its broadcast-grade IPTV and digital signage platform, at InfoComm 2018.

It will also demonstrate its expanded HEVC ecosystem at the show held on June 6-8 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The aim is to highlight how the video wall can simplify deployment and management of projects involving IPTV, digital signage, and video wall content, with the best visual experience possible given current technology.

The new EZ TV video wall processors are 100-percent hardware-based, supporting low-latency native playback of IPTV streams up to 4K, as well as interactive content, video, and imagery transformations. More than 50 displays on up to four unique walls can be managed from a single processor, including nonstandard layouts and resolutions of TVs and LED walls. It supports both H.264 and H.265 (HEVC) formats in resolutions up to 4K, with AES encryption for secure content delivery.

Also on display will be the recently released MGW Diamond Encoder and VITEC Playout Server as part of the company’s HEVC video distribution portfolio. The MGW Diamond is designed for power-efficiency, with portable quad-channel HEVC and H.264 HD/SD encoder in a compact form. It is aimed at multichannel broadcast applications with stringent size, weight, and power requirements, allowing capture of up to four 3G/HD/SD-SDI or composite inputs and output of up to eight streams simultaneously.

The Playout Server manages, captures, and previews IPTV-protected streams transmitted from any location and distributes them within a target network, whether for rebroadcast, video-on-demand, or other application. The focus is on reliable contribution over the internet aiming to balance quality and low bandwidth, avoiding need for expensive and fixed fiber or satellite transmission infrastructure.

VITEC will also display its point-to-point and point-to-multipoint HEVC streaming offering, incorporating the MGW Ace hardware-based HEVC encode/decode technology. This uses VITEC's second-generation 4:2:2 10-bit HEVC codec (Gen2) with built-in stream protection.

Finally, VITEC will show its multisite streaming solution for houses of worship, now integrated with Renewed Vision’s ProVideoServer video playout and ingest server. This integration allows churches to record one or more high-quality encoded streams from the main campus, with embedded time code and multichannel audio, and play back those streams at the satellite campus at any time.
