VITEC unveils portable HEVC encoding and streaming appliance

VITEC has announced the launch of its portable HEVC hardware encoder.

VITEC claims it is the industry's first entirely portable unit. The MGW Ace takes the benefits of HEVC encoding out of server rooms and into the field by integrating high-quality, low-delay hardware codec into a professional appliance.

MGW Ace boasts VITEC's real-time H.265 hardware based compression chip; a wide range of inputs; KLV/STANAG metadata processing for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) applications; and a secondary MPEG-4 H.264 chip to support legacy decoders. MGW Ace is the ideal solution for high-efficiency broadcast-quality 4:2:2 and 4:2:0 HD streaming and is designed to support the most demanding and diverse video streaming use cases.
