Next-Gen Transcoding Solution Enables Operators to Convert MPEG-4/H.264 Content to MPEG-2 without Breaking the Bank or Compromising Quality
SUNNYVALE, Calif. – MobilityWire® – October 20, 2009
RGB Networks, the leader in network video processing, today announced that it will be demonstrating its line of advanced video processing solutions at this year’s Cable-Tec Expo, including the new Video Multiprocessing Gateway (VMG), the multi-function, ultra-dense chassis behind RGB’s content repurposing solution. Capable of simultaneously delivering any video program to multiple devices – from televisions, to PCs, to mobile devices – via any network and with pristine picture quality, the VMG offers a scalable and highly reliable video processing solution for cable operators.
“This year’s Cable-Tec demonstrations really highlight the advancements we have made to our product line, particularly as we roll out our new content repurposing solution that enables cable operators to easily support different video sources, networks and devices,” said Ramin Farassat, Vice President of Product Marketing for RGB Networks. “Most immediately, as programmers increasingly deliver their content in MPEG-4/H.264, cable operators need an easy, cost-effective and scalable solution for transcoding the content into the MPEG-2 format that their networks can support.”
RGB will be demonstrating several products at this year’s Expo, including: the VMG, the Broadcast Network Processor (BNP) and the Dynamic Bandwidth Manager (DBM).
- The VMG is the heart of RGB’s new content repurposing solution, uniquely combining a number of key functions, including content repurposing, digital ad insertion, transrating, grooming ingest and aggregation, all in a single video processing platform. The VMG demonstration will include transcoding MPEG-4/H.264 streams into MPEG-2, as well as MPEG-4/H.264 ad insertion and statistical multiplexing of MPEG-2 and MPEG-4/H.264 streams.
- This year’s BNP demonstrations will highlight several key features of this multi-function product, including its digital overlay capabilities and its recently announced MPEG-4/H.264 digital ad insertion feature. Also on display will be a new function that is drawing much interest from operators—the BNP’s ability to deliver digital EAS messaging and operator-generated alerts. RGB continues to add new features and functionality to the BNP, which is widely deployed by operators throughout the Americas to optimize their bandwidth for the delivery of more high definition (HD) programming and to generate revenue through the insertion of local advertising.
- RGB’s DBM enables operators to deliver more on-demand services without increasing bandwidth. In its demonstration, the DBM will pack three HD VOD programs into a single 6MHz channel without impacting picture quality or VOD’s ‘trickplay’ features. Three HD streams in one channel represents 50 percent more VOD content without any compromises.
