VITEC Claims Highest Density HEVC IPTV Encoder

The MGES-7000 4K/UHD/HD HEVC and H.264 eight-input IPTV encoding blade is said to set a new benchmark in processing density.

The MGES-7000 offers real-time hardware encoding of four 4Kp60 or eight 3G/HD/SD input ports for live sources of SDI, HDMI, or IP (SMPTE ST 2110) video with features such as secondary channel, integrated resolution and AES 256/128-bit encryption.

"The streaming landscape has become incredibly diverse, which demands powerful, high-input solutions with the agility to support multiple channels of both HEVC and H.264 with broadcast quality and ultra-low latency across any network infrastructure," said David Ben-Atar, Product Manager at VITEC. "The MGES-7000 is the first encoding solution with the input availability to fully support these applications."

Using hardware-based encoding chips the product can provide benefits such as support for secondary video streams up to 1080p60 for each input. All streams can be managed with a web UI. When coupled with VITEC's Media Gateway MGW family of carrier-grade IPTV platforms, IPTV providers can serve up to 208 IPTV streams from the MGW 5100 (10RU), up to 96 IPTV streams from the MGW 1100 (4RU), and up to 16 IPTV streams from the MGW 1000 (1RU).

VITEC's Smoothing algorithm guarantees low jitter for flawless IP over any LAN or WAN network. In addition, it is fully supported by the VITEC Cluster Manager system, which provides global system monitoring and control, as well as automated N+K redundancy to ensure high availability operation for even the most critical use cases.
