Vitec Unveils HEVC MGW Ace Encode

Vitec has launched the MGW Ace Encoder firmware v2.0, a hardware-based HEVC encoder.

Powered by the new HEVC GEN2 codec, Vitec's MGW Ace Encoder is said by the company to provide the industry's best HEVC video quality of up to 4:2:2 10-bits HEVC encoding and surpasses the second-best competitor by 20 percent.

The unit features enhanced downscaling encoding resolutions and frame rate down sampling for a perfect match of stream quality based on the available bandwidth; HEVC-compliant KLV support with the latest MISB standards (JITC compliant) to ensure stream compliance within a Full Motion Video environment; and a Zixi Statistic window for an optimal point-to-point streaming configuration.

"Vitec is thrilled to deliver the highest HEVC video quality on the market with its compact, portable, and easy-to-use second-generation MGW Ace Encoder firmware. This release is a major milestone to VITEC's support of the HEVC standard, and this is only the beginning," said Richard Bernard, product manager at VITEC. "Any MGW Ace Encoder on the market can be updated, showing our customer base VITEC's dedication to building high-quality, future-proof, field-upgradable hardware."
