VITEC, a provider of advanced video encoding and streaming solutions, has announced the launch MGES-7000 4K/UHD/HD HEVC and H.264 eight-input IPTV encoding blade at the NAB Show 2019. The MGES-7000 offers real-time hardware encoding of four 4Kp60 or eight 3G/HD/SD input ports for live sources of SDI, HDMI, or IP (SMPTE ST 2110) video with advanced features such as secondary channel, integrated resolution and frame-rate scaling, AES 256/128-bit encryption, and low latency mode.


"The streaming landscape has become incredibly diverse, which demands powerful, high-input solutions with the agility to support multiple channels of both HEVC and H.264 with broadcast quality and ultra-low latency across any network infrastructure," said David Ben-Atar, product manager, Streaming and Delivery Products, VITEC. "The MGES-7000 is the first encoding solution with the input availability to fully support these applications."


Featuring the highest density available in the market, the MGES-7000 4K/UHD/HD HEVC and H.264 IPTV encoding blade is an encoder for input flexibility. With the increased density of blade-server configurations, it is an ideal multichannel blade encoder for a variety of applications. These include in-house broadcast, real-time high-quality sport events, low-delay encrypted FMV distribution and any installation with high-quality, low-latency IPTV distribution demands or that require support for legacy H.264 players, and cutting-edge 4K HEVC end-points.

In addition, it is a future-proof encoder solution that meets the current IPTV demands of H.264 and HD encoding while its advanced capabilities of HEVC, 4K\UHD, and HDR allows for technological growth and supports market trends. Using hardware-based encoding chips supporting 4:2:2/4:2:0 10-bit and 8-bit H.264 and HEVC codecs, it can support any application demand while providing benefits such as support for secondary video streams up to 1080p60 for each input. All streams can be managed with an easily configured web UI. When coupled with VITEC's Media Gateway MGW family of carrier-grade IPTV platforms, IPTV providers can serve up to 208 IPTV streams from the MGW 5100 (10RU), up to 96 IPTV streams from the MGW 1100 (4RU), and up to 16 IPTV streams from the MGW 1000 (1RU). VITEC's Smoothing algorithm guarantees low jitter for flawless IP over any LAN or WAN network. In addition, it is fully supported by the VITEC Cluster Manager (CM) System, which provides global system monitoring and control, as well as automated N+K redundancy to ensure high availability operation for even the most critical use cases.
