At the show, VITEC will also demonstrate its latest codec innovation for its MGW Ace encoder and MGW Ace decoder pair, with impressive ultra-low-latency streaming down to 30ms glass-to-glass.
At the show, VITEC will showcase the award-winning EZ TV IPTV & Digital Signage Platform with newly integrated media library capabilities, which adds a timesaving meta-solution for media professionals to tag, edit, organize, store, and share media files. This open system is easily adaptable to industry-specific workflows and allows all types of media to be filed consistently with the highest degree of security. In addition, the media library features a deep-learning auto-annotation tool and a video stock footage management application with responsive design and mobile device support.
In addition, VITEC will highlight its new series of video wall processors as part of the enterprise-grade EZ TV IPTV & Digital Signage Platform. The video wall processors are 100-percent hardware-based; feature low-latency, native playback of IPTV streams up to 4K; and support interactive content, video, and imagery transformations — all managed and scheduled from EZ TV Platforms’ intuitive software. VITEC’s high-performance video wall processors can power up to four discrete video walls and more than 50 displays from a single unit. Advanced features include support for nonstandard layouts and resolutions of TVs and LED walls, edge blending, and eye-catching effects.
