Many houses of worship around the world are expanding their reach and looking to accomplish a similar goal — one church, multiple locations. Every weekend members of different houses of worship gather as a community spread across multiple campuses to view the service delivered live. The main challenge with achieving this goal is how to economically deliver a reliable HD-quality video signal that engages the remote audience as if they were at the main campus, while also offering a scalable platform that can grow with the congregation. Historically, the only way to deliver HD quality content was to use a costly one-way fiber or satellite transmission service.
VITEC has teamed with Zixi™ to offer an integrated streaming solution that delivers pristine HD video delivery across multiple church campuses. By combining VITEC encoding and decoding technology with Zixi stream protection, houses of worship can provide enhanced video delivery to truly engage their followers. Developed to meet the demands of large-scale venues, VITEC/Zixi live streaming solutions offer high quality, low latency HD video streaming for point-to-point, bi-directional, and multi-site events.
MGW Ace and MGW D265— The First Portable HEVC Encoder
On display at WFX will be VITEC’s all-new MGW Ace appliance, the industry’s first 100-percent hardware-based HEVC portable device for encoding and streaming video. Powerful yet compact, the revolutionary device features HEVC (H.265) bandwidth-efficient compression as well as legacy H.264 capabilities. Its wide selection of I/Os and low power consumption using VITEC’s HEVC compression chip make it a perfect solution for streaming video, audio, and KLV metadata while in the field or on the move. When coupled with the MGW D265 portable HEVC IP decoder, it becomes an end-to-end, on-the-go streaming solution for such markets as broadcast, medical, education, enterprise, transportation, and more.
