Video Multiprocessing Gateway Also Wins “Best Digital Processing Solution”
LONDON – MobilityWire® – April 27, 2010
RGB Networks, the leader in network video processing, today announced that its Video Multiprocessing Gateway (VMG) product has been named overall winner and “Technological Innovation of the Year” at the prestigious 2010 SCTE Technological Innovation Awards here in England. The product was also selected as the winner of the “Best Digital Processing Solution” category for its unique ability to simultaneously deliver advanced MPEG-2 and MPEG-4/H.264 video services from a highly flexible platform.
As the industry’s first modular, high-capacity, carrier-class video processing platform, the integrated VMG is designed to address the operational complexity associated with the delivery of today’s advanced video services, as well as the transition to a ‘three screens’ environment. The product is highly regarded for its unique ability to perform a variety of stream processing functions in real-time, including transcoding, transrating and ad insertion, providing significant cost and operational benefits over traditional single-function solutions that do not scale well.
Founded in 1945, the Society for Broadband Professionals (SCTE) is an international non-profit organization, managed by an executive committee of elected volunteers. Traditionally, the prestigious SCTE Technological Innovation Awards have only been awarded to patron members of the society, however this year the awards were opened up to the whole broadband industry. Judging was conducted by an independent panel of industry experts and winners were announced at the SCTE Gala Awards Dinner on April 24. RGB Networks was selected as an overall winner from a selection of key players in the broadband industry.
“RGB Networks is delighted to receive the overall accolade at this year’s prestigious SCTE Technological Innovation Awards,” said Rudi Polednik, Sr. Director, International Sales for RGB Networks. “To not only be singled out as the Best Digital Processing Solution, but also to be selected as the best overall entrant is a real honour and testament to RGB’s continued innovation within the video processing space.”
