SUNNYVALE, California – MobilityWire® – October 5, 2010
RGB Networks, the leader in network video processing, today announced that its award-winning Video Multiprocessing Gateway (VMG) has received a coveted 4 Diamond rating in Broadband Gear Report’s esteemed 2010 Diamond Technology Reviews. The VMG was recognized for its advanced “three screen” capabilities which enable cable television operators and other video service providers deliver live programming to TVs, PCs and mobile devices.
“Receiving a high 4 Diamond ranking from the Broadband Gear Report’s panel of esteemed cable engineers clearly shows that the industry recognizes the unique value proposition offered by the modular, carrier-class VMG,” said Nabil Kanaan, Sr. Director, Product Marketing for RGB Networks. “The VMG can make the goal of ‘TV Everywhere’ a reality, enabling video service providers to quickly and efficiently scale from small three screen trials into large service deployments.”
This is the latest honor for the VMG, which last month won the award for “Best Digital Video Processing Technology” in Cable & Satellite International magazine’s annual CSI Awards.
To date, the VMG has won four awards in recognition of its advanced capabilities and potential for enabling a new generation of video services delivered seamlessly to any device at any time and over any network. The VMG enables this three screen delivery using an innovative modular chassis design that utilizes hybrid underlying technologies—FPGA, ASIC, general purpose processors—while allowing in-chassis implementation of multiple applications with carrier-class high availability.
The VMG is currently being used by several major U.S. and international cable operators in their trials of three screen services. The VMG has also been commercially deployed with several cable and telecom carriers which are taking advantage of its advanced transcoding capabilities to deliver more high definition programming to their subscribers.
The Broadband Gear Report’s Diamond Technology Reviews, launched in 2005, is an unbiased technology review program utilizing a distinguished panel of engineering executives from major U.S. cable television operators to judge each submission.
