​Vitec Debuts MGW Diamond Encoder

The MGW Diamond adds quad-channel HEVC encoding in a compact form factor to the Vitec HEVC product lineup.

The appliance enables point-to-point and point-to-multipoint streaming with low-bandwidth and low-latency streaming from four inputs with up to eight streams output. The “compact, power-efficient, and portable” HEVC and H.264 HD/SD encoder is claimed ideal for any multichannel application with stringent size, weight, and power requirements.

The MGW Diamond is said to deliver HEVC encoding in a fraction of the footprint of comparable encoders, with the ability to capture up to four 3G/HD/SD-SDI or composite inputs and live stream up to eight channels.

Said Richard Bernard, product manager at Vitec, "Its attractive channel-count-to-footprint ratio supports our customers' field-based applications within the sports, enterprise, and surveillance markets. Our comprehensive HEVC offering includes broadcast-grade contribution appliances, head-end 4K IPTV encoders and now, with the debut of the MGW Diamond, an ultra-compact, quad-channel streaming appliance for field applications."
