Invitel Selects RGB Networks Video Multiprocessing Gateway for HD Conversions
By Rahul Arora, TMCnet Contributor
RGB Networks, a provider of multi-screen IP video delivery solutions, recently announced that its Video Multiprocessing Gateway (News - Alert) (VMG) has been selected by Hungarianfixed line telecommunications and broadband internet services provider Invitel, to facilitate conversion of its high-definition, or HD, portfolio of programs from MPEG-2 to MPEG-4/H.264 compression format.
The VMG solution delivers advanced video services. The company claims that VMG is only integrated, carrier-class platform of its kind that covers a range of critical applications including multi-screen IP video delivery, ad insertion and HD-to-SD down conversion. The VMG’s advanced transcoding capabilities include MPEG-4/H.264 <-> MPEG-2, as well as bit rate and resolution changes for delivery of premium video to any IP-enabled device. Designed for flexibility, cost-efficiency and reliability, the VMG's modular blade architecture represents a future-proof investment that scales well in the rapidly-evolving video marketplace.
"To accommodate the changing requirements of our distribution model we needed a flexible solution that would enable us to effortlessly transcode our existing program content between different codecs, without any impact on video quality," said Adam Bognar, network development and operations senior manager at Invitel. "With the flexibility to perform a number of different transcoding functions within the same platform, while still delivering premium video quality, RGB's VMG made the most sense financially and operationally, as well as for subscriber satisfaction."
"With more and more video being made available for delivery across bandwidth-constrained networks, operators like Invitel need a solution that enables them to easily and cost-effectively convert video to the standard they need, when they need it," said Simone Sassoli, vice president Marketing and Business Development for RGB Networks. "In doing so, the VMG helps operators maximize the usage of their existing content stores, while keeping subscribers happy. We are delighted to offer video service providers like Invitel a scalable, high-density live transcoding platform that can perform this function, without the costs and headaches associated with low-density solutions."
