The new 2RU ViBE XT1000 Xtream high-density transcoder for live broadcast and multiscreen content has made its debut on the Thomson Video Networks stand. This product allows Thomson Video Networks to step into the world of high-density low-cost transcoding, which is a new market for the company.
“We offer different products to address the different segments of the encoding market and the new ViBE XT1000 packs the maximum number of channels into the minimum amount of rack-space,” explained Stéphane Cloirec, director of product management at Thomson Video Networks (pictured).
The ViBE XT1000 supports up to 54 HD channels or 180 SD channels with transcoding from any format to any format including MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC and is pitched at linear broadcasts on cable, IPTV, DTH and DTTV services as well as multiscreen delivery.
“This brand new encoder is also a crucial addition to our new ‘Behind Every Screen’ strategy,” continued Cloirec.
“So far, the feedback from key accounts about our new strategy has been tremendous.”
