Vitec in the Middle East: Broadcast, Sports & Venue, Military
Vitec is aware that the main concern of most of its customers is the difficulties associated with delivering video streams from the field. Bandwidth limitations are the key issue, and this is especially pronounced in the Middle East where the topography promotes heavy reliance on satellite links. The more data you send, the more you expose yourself to packet loss and data corruption dramatically increasing operating costs. Vitec’s solutions allow very high levels of compression for video signals without degrading the video quality for operators. This makes delivery of high-quality video feeds a reality allowing customers to gain a tactical advantage.
Given the need for live reporting from the field to cover the near-constant stream of breaking news and events in the region, Vitec sees this as an essential solution for broadcasters. Vitec takes the benefits of HEVC encoding out of the server room and into the field by integrating a high-quality, low-delay hardware codec into a professional appliance, reducing operating expenses and extending the reach of video services to remote destinations with bandwidth constraints. It is the industry’s only portable IP streaming solution for HEVC (H.265) MGW Ace Encoder, MGW Ace Decoder.
