At CABSAT 2015, Thomson Video Networks will showcase innovations that enable broadcasters to maintain their high video-quality standards and evolve seamlessly, cost-effectively, and profitably as new live video paradigms emerge. Highlighted innovations will include the ViBE(TM) VS7000 and ViBE EM4000 encoding solutions that comprise the company's visionary new strategy to deliver multi-channel content in a single architecture combining cloud, virtual, and in-house resources. Also on display will be the ViBE CP6000 high-density contribution platforms.
A Unified Architecture for Pristine Video Quality
For the first time at CABSAT, Thomson Video Networks will present Behind Every Screen -- the company's strategy for an all-encompassing video delivery infrastructure that supports traditional live broadcasts over cable, DTH, and DTTV as well as IPTV and OTT on multiple devices.
Designed for traditional as well as new-media broadcasters and pay-TV operators, this compelling new approach provides every key capability broadcasters need for profitable and convergent multi-platform video delivery.
Central to Behind Every Screen are Thomson Video Networks compression solutions for encoding of high-value content -- including the award-winning ViBE(TM) VS7000 cloud-enabled, multi-screen encoding system and the ViBE EM4000, the first premium encoder to offer a density of eight HD MPEG-4 AVC channels in a 1-RU chassis. Powered by the MediaFlexOS multimedia framework, these solutions enable a hybrid architecture for deploying services on video-optimized hardware or using software-based encoding running on lower-cost and generic physical servers, virtualized servers, and cloud infrastructures.
World-Class Video Contribution
Thomson Video Networks will feature fixed, mobile, and cloud-based contribution solutions including the market-leading ViBE(TM) CP6000 contribution platform. Enabling cloud-friendly deployments for contribution and primary distribution, the ViBE CP6000 provides an all-encompassing media infrastructure that supports multiple codecs, multiple networks, and multiple devices for ground-to-cloud as well as ground-to-ground video delivery. The ViBE CP6000 features an unprecedented eight HD channels per 1-RU chassis, with a modular implementation of the optimal MPEG-4 contribution codecs for industry-leading compression performance in contribution applications. The CP6100 provides the same functionality in a compact half-rack platform, perfectly designed for space-constrained applications. At CABSAT 2015, Thomson Video Networks will demonstrate advanced new capabilities for the CP6000/CP6100 to deliver broadcast-quality video transmissions over unmanaged networks including the open Internet.
