VITEC, a worldwide leader in advanced video encoding and streaming solutions, today announced the new multichannel HEVC MGW Diamond encoder on Stand 7.C34 at IBC2018, Sept. 14-18, in Amsterdam. The MGW Diamond adds quad-channel HEVC encoding in a compact and portable form factor to the VITEC HEVC product lineup.
“The MGW Diamond is a much-needed solution in our ever-changing video landscape,” said Richard Bernard, product manager at VITEC. “Its attractive channel-count-to-footprint ratio supports our customers’ field-based applications within the sports, enterprise, defense, and surveillance markets. VITEC’s comprehensive HEVC offering includes broadcast-grade contribution appliances, head-end 4K IPTV encoders and now, with the debut of the MGW Diamond, an ultra-compact, quad-channel streaming appliance for field applications.”
The MGW Diamond is a versatile solution that enables point-to-point and point-to-multipoint streaming with the benefits of low-bandwidth and low-latency streaming from four inputs with up to eight streams output. Making its global debut at IBC2018, the compact, power-efficient, and portable HEVC and H.264 HD/SD encoder is the ideal solution for any multichannel application with stringent size, weight, and power requirements (SWaP). The MGW Diamond delivers HEVC encoding in a fraction of the footprint of comparable encoders, with the ability to capture up to four 3G/HD/SD-SDI or composite inputs and live stream up to eight channels.
