Thomson Video Networks Launches ViBE(TM) XT1000 for High-Density Transcoding of Live Content for Broadcast and Multi-Screen Delivery

RENNES, FRANCE -- (Marketwired) -- 08/28/14 -- Thomson Video Networks today announced the launch of the ViBE™ XT1000 Xtream Transcoder, an all-new high-density video transcoder for live content. 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, making it ideal for linear broadcasts on cable, IPTV, DTH, and DTTV services, as well as multi-screen delivery.

"The ViBE XT1000 provides a dense and scalable solution with which operators can launch new turnaround services rapidly and cost-effectively. With an improvement of up-to-50-percent in transcoding density compared with competing products, the ViBE XT1000 offers the ideal compromise of cost and compression performance in non-premium channel lineups," said Eric Gallier, vice president of marketing, Thomson Video Networks. "As a crucial addition to our Behind Every Screen strategy, the ViBE XT1000 joins our other industry-leading ViBE compression solutions in providing customers with everything they need to deliver a profitable and successful multi-platform convergent video delivery solution."

Housed in a highly resilient 2RU platform equipped with hot-swappable redundant components, the ViBE XT1000 offers industry-leading reliability through load balancing and built-in redundancy powered by Thomson Video Networks' MediaFlex(OS) video operating system. Beyond audio and video transcoding, the product offers state-of-the-art features including CBR, VBR/statistical multiplexing, and ABR video transcoding, logo and text insertion, subtitle management, and audio loudness control, as well as WebTV scrambling and packaging (Apple HLS, Microsoft HSS, and MPEG DASH).

The ViBE XT1000 Xtream Transcoder will be featured at IBC2014 along with the other components in the Thomson Video Networks Behind Every Screen™ solution, and the product will be commercially available in Q4 2014. Further information about the ViBE XT1000 and other Thomson Video Networks products is available at www.thomson-networks.com.

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
