ViXS Demonstrates Industry's Most Advanced Video Processing and Streaming Products at CES 2015

Extends Leadership Position With Technologies That Enable Critical Solutions Such as Video over IP Streaming and Internet of Things

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - January 06, 2015) - ViXS Systems Inc. (TSX: VXS), a pioneer and leader in media processing solutions, today announced that at CES 2015 it will be showcasing a suite of network video processing and streaming technologies that set new industry performance benchmarks, including 12-bit color depth, High Dynamic Range video processing (HDR), High Frame Rate video decoding (HFR), advanced multi-stream transcoding, video over IP streaming/distribution, Over-the-top (OTT) and user generated content. Also, ViXS will be showcasing next generation cloud media processing solutions that enable unmatched stream densities and system cost savings in cloud server platforms. These media processing solutions will be complemented by the recently announced XConnex Ethernet-over-Coaxial (EoC) cable solutions that enable networking up to 3.2 Gbps of bandwidth. ViXS will also be demonstrating video analytics and media profiling technologies that enable service providers and consumer electronics manufacturers to create and optimise the use of intelligent devices important for video related Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The ViXS booth is located at South Hall 2, location #MP26055, during the 2015 International CES,  January 6-9, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

The leading companies in movie production, broadcast video distribution and consumer electronics have made it clear that technologies such as HDR, HFR, 12-bit video and wide color gamut as defined by the ITU BT 2020 standard are required to accelerate the mass adoption of Ultra HD. HDR technology extends the dynamic range of brightness and contrast levels that can be displayed, creating spectacular clarity and brilliant colors that make images appear incredibly natural. HFR provides fluid lifelike movements especially when viewing high motion content such as live sporting events, bringing the full experience of the action to the consumer's living room. The recently announced XCode 6800 creates the most realistic and stunning images yet for consumer video applications with its unprecedented support for Ultra HD 2160p60 up to 12 bit HDR and HFR HD 1080p up to 240 frames per second.

"Ultra HD is moving unbelievably quickly, and ViXS is proud to once again lead the industry with more video technologies and products to help keep that momentum," said Sally Daub, President and CEO, ViXS Systems Inc. "At this year's CES, ViXS' innovation and execution are on fully display with our new XCode 6800, 12-bit color, HDR, HFR and video analytics and profiling solutions, that taken together will help drive TV Everywhere and IoT forward."
