Thomson Video Networks is to showcase contribution, cable TV and OTT delivery solutions at this year’s ANGA COM.
Thomson Video Networks’ ViBE CP6000 is a dedicated multi-format, high-performance platform for contribution of live video.
At ANGA COM, Thomson Video Networks will feature a new DVB-S/S2/DSNG hot-swappable satellite modulator board for the ViBE CP6000 and the new half-rack CP6100 compact platform, designed for space-constrained applications. Also on display will be the RD6000 contribution receiver/decoder, a natural companion to the ViBE CP6000.
Thomson Video Networks will also feature its ViBE EM4000 multi-channel HD/SD encoder, the first premium encoder offering a density of eight HD MPEG-4 AVC channels in a 1-RU chassis. The ViBE EM4000 features new compression innovations for both MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC to provide even more bandwidth savings and video quality improvement for pay-TV operators.
Also on display will be the Sapphire MPEG Stream Server, a channel-in-a-box solution providing all the functions needed to ingest, process, brand, and generate TV channels ready for air. Sapphire offers advanced capture, playout and ad insertion capabilities, and frame-accurate operation with MPEG-2 and H.264 compressed content.
Meanwhile, the ViBE VS7000 video system combines Thomson Video Networks’ compression technology for picture quality with live broadcast-quality encoding, video preprocessing and faster-than-real-time file transcoding.
Thomson’s MediaFlex v3.0 video operating system provides a 40% increase in terms of channel density, allowing the ViBE VS7000 to process up to 448 SD channels or 80 HD channels on a single frame.
Thomson Video Networks will also demonstrate both real-time and offline HEVC encoding on the ViBE VS7000 platform.
