The MGW ACE Compact HEVC/H.265 Hardware Encoder from Vitec uses HEVC/H.264 compression that allows users to stream broadcast quality 1080p video with up to 50% bandwidth savings compared to H.264 standards. The MGW ACE offers various video input interfaces including HD-SDI, SD-SDI, HDMI, DVI, and Composite. Additionally, it features a user-intuitive web management software with full control of all H.265 compression settings. A secondary hardware based MPEG4-H.264 chip offers the ability to stream H.264 video in parallel to the network-efficient HEVC to support legacy systems.
MGW Ace boasts an all-hardware compression chip for real time encoding with advanced audio and metadata handling. MGW Ace allows you to take HEVC encoding from the server rooms into the field for professional and industrial applications with easy integration to transport cases, TV trucks, military vehicles and aircraft.
Flexible Connectivity Options with H.264 Backward Compatibility
The MGW Ace Encoder offers various input options including 3G, HD-SDI, SD-SDI, DVI, HDMI and Composite video as well as analog and digital audio (embedded and discrete). A built-in video matrix enables routing of video sources to both the HEVC and H.264 compression cores for generating streams in both H.265 and H.264 formats. The on-board hardware scaler can be used for real-time downscaling, frame-sampling and flexible cropping options delivering the most optimized video output for your application.
Bandwidth Efficient HEVC/H.265 Streaming
MGW Ace Encoder's HEVC compression and streaming capabilities allows broadcasters, A/V teams, corporate IT as well as military forces and government agencies to reduce Operating Expenses (OPEX) for video streaming projects while managing demand for more video services and requests for higher quality video on existing bandwidth capability.
KLV/STANAG Metadata Ingest for Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) Applications
The industrial-grade design combined with the low-power consumption allows high quality Full Motion Video streams to be delivered from the field through the most constrained network links. The secondary H.264 compression core allows government and military forces to deploy ISR encoding solution while continuing to support legacy end-points and older IPTV receive suites.
IPTV and Situational Awareness Video Applications
MGW Ace Encoder can be used as stand-alone or integrated seamlessly into a Turn-Key HEVC solution. VITEC's comprehensive HEVC product offering includes encoders and streaming appliances, IPTV decoding appliances, video portal for distribution, archiving and playback, desktop and mobile video players in addition to PCI cards with SDK for integration projects.
