Worldwide Demand for RGB’s Multi-screen Solutions Continues to Grow
SUNNYVALE, Calif.– MobilityWire® – June 13, 2011
RGB Networks, the leader in high-capacity multi-screen video delivery solutions, has enlisted Incospec Communications, a leading Canadian sales agent and systems integrator, to represent RGB and its complete line of video processing solutions to video service providers in Quebec and Eastern Canada.
“RGB Networks’ proven products have been widely deployed in Canada for years, but interest is only growing as cable operators, telecom carriers and other video service providers strive to offer both live and on-demand programming across TVs, PCs, tablets and mobile phones,” said Mario Sebastiani, President and Owner of Incospec. “The unmatched video stream processing density, advanced transcoding capabilities and outstanding reliability of RGB’s products make them ideal for video service providers as they move from small-scale trials to offering TV Everywhere services to all their subscribers. We are proud to represent this cutting-edge company.”
“For more than 30 years Incospec has been a trusted provider of MPEG video compression and broadcast technology to Canada’s video service providers—their sterling reputation and deep understanding of technology make them an ideal partner to expand the distribution of our TV Everywhere solutions to Canadian broadcasters and IPTV providers,” said Lou Mastrocola, RGB’s Vice President of Americas Sales. “The demand for our unique multi-screen solution is growing as operators prioritize the delivery of high-quality video to PCs, tablets and other mobile devices—in addition to TVs—and we look forward to working with the Incospec team to continue this growth.”
One of the keys to delivering a commercial-grade TV Everywhere service that offers both live and on-demand programming is the real-time transcoding of video content into thousands of individual video streams optimized for any device, ranging from a large screen HDTV, down to the smallest smartphone. Accomplishing this in an easily scalable and cost-effective manner, and with the best video quality, is precisely what RGB has focused on in the development of its comprehensive multi-screen solutions.
About RGB Networks’ TV Everywhere Solutions
RGB’s TV Everywhere solutions includes its award-winning Video Multiprocessing Gateway (VMGTM), the industry’s highest capacity transcoder, capable of simultaneously transcoding 400+ MPEG-2 and MPEG-4/H.264 video streams into the growing number of formats required to serve an ever-expanding array of end user devices. The VMG utilizes a truly carrier-class chassis with extensive redundancy features to ensure reliable operation at all times.
Complementing the VMG is RGB’s TransAct Packager, an advanced adaptive streaming solution that ingests MPEG-4/H.264 video programs and outputs multiple versions of each program encoded at different bit rates which are then packaged in the Apple HTTP Live Streaming, Microsoft Smooth Streaming and Adobe HTTP Dynamic Streaming formats.
