MGW Ace — The First Portable HEVC Encoder 

At IBC2015, VITEC is introducing its innovative MGW Ace appliance, the industry’s first 100-percent hardware-based HEVC portable device for encoding and streaming video. Powerful yet compact, the revolutionary device features HEVC (H.265) bandwidth-efficient compression as well as legacy H.264 capabilities — supporting today’s diverse and demanding field-based content requirements within settings such as live news broadcasts, sports venues, or secure applications within military environments. Equipped with a wide selection of I/Os and offering low power consumption using VITEC’s HEVC compression chip, the flexible device is ideal for any high-quality audio or video streaming, as well as KLV metadata requirements whether in the field or on the move.

MGW D265 Portable HEVC Decoder 

Also being shown for the first time at IBC is the all-new MGW D265 Portable H.265 & H.264 IP Decoder. Specifically designed to provide decoding for any IPTV and full-motion-video application, the innovative device delivers a compact footprint, best-in-class connectivity options, and ultra-low delay. Supporting next-generation HEVC (H.265) compression technology, the MGW D265 lets IP video applications benefit from up to 40-percent savings in network bandwidth compared to the H.264 format. As a result, installations experience reduced operating expenses, as well as improved picture quality within fixed bandwidth settings. Perfect for portable missions or stationary decoding on any network, the decoder provides connectivity options such as HD-SDI, SD-SDI, HDMI, and composite video while offering incredibly low end-to-end latency of 400 milliseconds.
