Vitec Claims New HEVC Bar

Vitec has announced its second-generation HEVC codec (GEN2) which is said to beat the next best HEVC codec competitor by 20 percent.

When paired with Vitec’s MGW Ace Decoder, it becomes a fully hardware-based, end-to-end 4:2:2 10-bit HEVC encode/decode streaming solution.

"By offering unmatched HEVC encoding performance, our MGW Ace Encoder is the perfect solution for reducing OPEX in point-to-point video transmission," said Richard Bernard, product manager. "Our entire installed base can benefit from this major update, allowing superior video quality."

"VITEC continues to usher in the most advanced, reliable, and affordable streaming technology available, and it's due to our persistence and heavy investment in algorithms and codec optimization," said Philippe Wetzel, founder and CEO. "With the release of GEN2, we have added another remarkable advancement to our product offering that enables our customers to flawlessly transmit their video streams in the highest possible quality while reducing costs."
