Sunnyvale, California, December  18, 2012 - VITEC, a worldwide leader in advanced digital video solutions, announced a major feature enhancement on the carrier-grade IPTV Blade Platforms to support unmatched audio encoding processing of eight stereo pairs in a single video stream using its broadcast quality H.264 HD/SD video compression engine. The multi-audio enhancement includes advanced, hardware-based, SDI audio shifting and mixing capabilities enabling operators to optimize audio services with maximum flexibility. VITEC also offers the unique capability of 8 audio tracks in its over-the-top (OTT) IP Transcoding blade, the MGTS-Prism, empowering internet video service providers to stream audio-rich content to tablets and smart phones.

Optibase MGW Blade Systems, the first blade solution introduced in the Enterprise IPTV Market, continuously sets the standard for density, video quality and reliability among broadcast centers, military units, government facilities and corporate offices. The MGW Blade Platform sets itself apart from other blade solutions due to its smart centralized controller blade that manages all system blades and automates fail-over between blades to achieve “Five Nines” high availability for IPTV services while consolidating all management and video streaming traffic to one blade for maximum efficiency.
“The Optibase MGW Blade Systems is the gold standard for carrier-grade architecture and video quality.
