On display at InfoComm 2016 will be VITEC’s MGW Ace appliance, the industry’s first 100% hardware-based HEVC portable device for encoding and streaming video, and the MGW D265, a portable HEVC IP decoder. The powerful yet compact MGW Ace appliance provides high-end video quality with its HEVC (H.265) bandwidth-efficient compression as well as legacy H.264 encoding capabilities. With a wide selection of I/Os and low power consumption using VITEC’s HEVC compression chip, it’s an ideal solution for streaming video, audio, and KLV metadata while in the field or on the move.
