VITEC to Showcase Military and Defense Video Streaming Solutions at EuroSatory 2016

PARIS, FRANCE--(Marketwired - May 31, 2016) - VITEC, a worldwide leader in advanced video encoding and streaming solutions, announced it will demonstrate its full range of end-to-end streaming solutions for military and defense applications in Hall 5 booth K721 at EuroSatory 2016. Held in Paris from June 13-17 at Paris Nord Villepinte, EuroSatory is the premier international defense and security exhibition.

"VITEC has a strong commitment to the streaming requirements of government, airborne, and military organizations," said Philippe Wetzel, CEO of VITEC. "We believe our award-winning MGW Pico TOUGH encoder will revolutionize how video in varying mission-critical situations is streamed and delivered."

At EuroSatory VITEC will highlight its credit card-sized MGW Pico TOUGH, the world's smallest H.264 HD/SD encoding solution and streaming appliance. Weighing less than 400 grams, MGW Pico TOUGH sets a new standard of performance for manned and unmanned airborne platforms, military vehicles, and ground units. The MGW Pico TOUGH consumes less than 7 watts of power for 1080p encoding with KLV/STANAG metadata and features simultaneous, low-latency streaming of two sources from HD-SDI and analog composite signals, JITC-compliant metadata processing AES encryption, error correction technology, real-time resolution scaling, and image cropping. The rugged enclosure uses MIL-DTL-38999 connectors and is certified for extreme environmental conditions.

Also on display will be VITEC's MGW Ace appliance, the industry's first 100 percent hardware-based HEVC (H.265) portable device for encoding and streaming video, and the MGW D265, a portable HEVC IP decoder. The powerful yet compact MGW Ace appliance features HEVC bandwidth-efficient compression as well as legacy H.264 capabilities and Zixi stream protection for reliable, artifact- and error-free content delivery. With a wide selection of I/Os and low power consumption using VITEC's HEVC compression chip, it's a perfect solution for streaming video, audio, and KLV metadata while in the field or on the move. When MGW Ace is coupled with the MGW D265, the devices become an end-to-end, on-the-go streaming solution.

In addition, VITEC will showcase FITIS (fully integrated tactical IPTV system), an integrated full motion video (FMV) solution for capturing, processing, archiving, indexing, managing, and disseminating tactical ISR video and metadata. Designed for rapid deployments and efficient distribution of IP video across LANs and WANs and in any network configuration, FITIS enables real-time playback of tactical and situational awareness imagery, continuous recording and indexing of metadata, and retrieval of vital video assets and analysts' notes. It supports propagation of scenario-specific video imagery in a variety of formats and bandwidth constraints from high-definition ISR footage for analysts to ultra-compressed streams for transmission to tactical units at the edge.
