On display were the MGW Ace appliance and the MGW D265, a portable IP decoder. The MGW Ace appliance provides video quality with its bandwidth compression as well as H.264 encoding capabilities. With a selection of I/Os, it is able to stream video, audio, and KLV metadata. When MGW Ace is coupled with the MGW D265, the devices become an end-to-end, on-the-go streaming solution with Pro-MPEG FEC or Zixi error correction capabilities for markets. The company provides industry-standard RTMP streaming to distribute content to a large audience via CDN.

Vitec showed the EZ TV IPTV Solution-upgrades, including the ability to use shardware-based IPTV end-points to create digital signage that blends real-time video and marketing content. EZ TV's scalable architecture provides customers with a solution for managing live feeds, on-demand content, and digital signage layouts. The centralized Web-based interface for management and monitoring allows for deployment and low operating costs. 

The company’s House of Worship Streaming Solution is integrated with Renewed Vision ProVideoServer. This integration allows churches to record one or more streams from the main campus, with embedded time code and multi-channel audio, and play back those streams at the satellite campus at any time.

The Focus FS-H50/60/70 are portable, H.264 standard and HD recorders for workflows and applications with high video quality, optimized video file sizes, and remote capabilities. They record H.264 clips up to 1080p in MOV/MP4, which play back on decoding platforms, including PC, Mac, tablets, and smartphones. They can be uploaded to networks or video platforms for sharing and collaboration, without transcoding.
