Here’s a rundown of what the VITEC EZ TV platform offers:

  • Set-Top Boxes/Signage Endpoints – VITEC AES encryption, two 1080p streams decoded simultaneously
  • Mobile Player – for iOS and Android devices
  • Sign Creator – design app
  • IP Monitoring

On the encoding side, VITEC also offered a glimpse at the MGW Diamond, a 4-channel HEVC & H.264 encoder with the abilty to output up to eight streams simultaneously.

The MGW Diamond offers:

  • Muti-site/Multi-channel IP Video distribution

More on VITEC InfoComm 2018 products from Peer Jambor, marketing director:

“We really wanted to make it a platform you can build on; you can expand. In collegiate sports, they might start off smaller, but add on signage and another platform to complete the experience [later].

“We encounter all the time that our main competitor’s system for management is very complicated. They have to call support or have someone on-site which is very costly and time consuming.

“That’s one of the main advantages we have: it’s really an easy management to change signs at venues like the Sacramento Kings where they have over 200 events per year and need to constantly change their setup.”
