TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - April 10, 2015) - ViXS Systems Inc. (TSX: VXS), a pioneer and leader in media processing solutions, today announced that Imagine Communications has employed ViXS XCodePro System-on-Chip (SoC) technology in its SelenioNext™ high density multiscreen transcoder. Delivering dense transcoding in IPTV and live programming for mobile devices, SelenioNext with SoC technology is in production and available for immediate order and delivery from Imagine Communications. SelenioNext will be on display for h.264 distribution applications, along with the SelenioFlex Live for HEVC distribution with the ViXS decoder products for HEVC, in the Imagine Communications booth, N2707, at NAB 2015 in Las Vegas. NAB is the world`s largest electronic media conference covering creation and consumption of media across multiple platforms.

The ViXS XCodePro family of SoC products is used throughout the broadcast industry and now in Cloud-based environments as encoders, decoders, and transcoders, providing extremely high-density transcoding of SD and HD content.

"ViXS is pleased to partner with Imagine Communications, a global leader in video infrastructure technology," said Hugh Chow, Interim President and Chief Executive Officer, ViXS Systems, Inc. "This deployment of the XCodePro family as a dense transcode solution enables ViXS and Imagine Communications to better meet the demand for dense transcoding and capitalize on the broadcast industry's transition to 10-bit HEVC and UHD."

"Imagine Communications is excited to demonstrate the SelenioNext™ product containing ViXS XCodePro technology. Utilization of this technology helps us achieve enhanced density at the lowest power consumption levels in our hardware accelerated solution," said Steve Reynolds, CTO, Imagine Communications. "Density is important to our customers as the number of TV Everywhere channels continues to increase and they provide more multiscreen services in conjunction with their traditional linear services."
