Vitec to show videowall and media library features in IPTV platform

Vitec will show new videowall and media library capabilities of its broadcast-grade EZ TV IPTV and digital signage platform at IBC 2018, September 14 to 18, in Amsterdam.

Also on show on stand 7.C34 will be its MGW Ace encode and decode system and MGW Diamond, a compact and portable quad-channel HEVC encoder. 

Vitec will demonstrate its ecosystem HEVC video contribution and distribution solutions with the MGW Diamond encoder; its MGW Ace encoder and decoder; and its Vitec Playout Server, a point-to-point HEVC contribution and distribution server. The MGW Diamond makes it European debut at the IBC and adds quad-channel HEVC encoding in a portable form factor to the Vitec HEVC family. The Vitec Playout Server provides a platform to manage, capture, preview and distribute IPTV streams. At the show, VITEC will also demonstrate its latest codec for its MGW Ace encoder and MGW Ace decoder pair, with low-latency streaming of 30ms glass-to-glass.

At the show, Vitec will also show its EZ TV IPTV and Digital Signage Platform with newly integrated media library capabilities, which adds a meta-solution for professionals to tag, edit, organise, store and share media files. The open system allows all types of media to be filed consistently and securely. The media library features a deep-learning auto-annotation tool and a video stock footage management application with responsive design and mobile device support.

Vitec will highlight its new series of video wall processors as part of the enterprise-grade EZ TV IPTV and Digital Signage Platform. The video wall processors are hardware-based; feature low-latency, native playback of IPTV streams up to 4K; and support interactive content, video, and imagery transformations, which are all managed and scheduled from EZ TV Platforms' software. Vitec's video wall processors can power up to four discrete video walls and more than 50 displays from a single unit. Features include support for nonstandard layouts and resolutions of TVs and LED walls and edge blending.
