ViBE 4K Ultra HD Encoder
Thomson Video Networks’ ViBE 4K high-efficiency video coding encoder enabled live 4K streaming of the 2015 French Open tennis championship.
The real-time encoding solution delivers compression of UHD sources in HEVC at up to 60 frames per second and in 10-bit colour. At the French Open, France Télévisions in partnership with FRANSAT, the French DTH platform operated by Eutelsat, used the Thomson Video Networks ViBE 4K to broadcast live UHD pictures in H.265 format on the Francetvsport Ultra HD television channel. The broadcast was available to viewers with 4K-compatible displays.
"As the latest addition to our robust portfolio of UHD solutions, the ViBE 4K is also the industry's most compact live 4K encoder at only 1RU," said Eric Gallier, vice president, marketing, Thomson Video Networks. "It's the ideal complement to our ViBE VS7000 multi-screen and HEVC video encoder, which has already been deployed successfully by major global satellite operators as a file-based HEVC encoding and playout solution.”
