RGB’s Video Multiprocessing Gateway Takes the “Innovation in Encoding” Category
SUNNYVALE, California – MobilityWire® – November 12, 2009
RGB Networks, the leader in network video processing, announced that its Video Multiprocessing Gateway (VMG) won a coveted TelcoTV 2009 Vision Award in the “Innovation in Encoding” category yesterday.
The VMG is a carrier-class video processing solution that enables service providers to deliver high-quality digital and IPTV-based video services in both MPEG-2 and MPEG-4/H.264. It won in the “Innovation in Encoding” category based on the integration of its, high-density content repurposing capabilities with a number of other value-added video processing functions, including ad insertion, transrating and grooming. Able to simultaneously transcode hundreds of MPEG-2 programs into MPEG-4/H.264, and vice versa, in real time, the VMG offers telco video service providers a highly versatile and scalable solution as they expand their video offerings.
“Winning a TelcoTV 2009 Vision Award is another validation of our unique approach to transcoding and of the ability of our Video Multiprocessing Gateway to help service providers of all sizes deliver advanced video and advertising services whether they use MPEG-2 or MPEG-4/H.264,” said Sanjay Dhar, Director of Product Marketing for RGB Networks. “By integrating transcoding with several other key video processing functions in a single, ultra-dense, carrier-class platform, the VMG offers a highly scalable and cost-effective solution for transitioning video service providers’ networks to an architecture than enables the delivery of personalized services.”
A key component of RGB’s innovative content repurposing solution, RGB’s next-generation approach to transcoding will enable video service providers to simultaneously deliver any video program to multiple devices – from televisions, to personal computers, to mobile devices – via any network and with pristine picture quality. This ability to easily repurpose many video sources, deliver them over multiple networks and to all viewing devices using a single, integrated video processing platform will dramatically reduce the operational complexity for video service providers to expand their offerings.
