Thomson Video Adds HEVC Support to ViBE VS7000 and A/V Analyzer
Video compression specialist Thomson Video Networks announced today that it is getting on board with the HEVC (high efficiency video coding) standard by adding support to its ViBE VS7000 and Audio/Video (A/V) Codec Analyzer products.
ViBE VS7000 is an encoding and transcoding platform designed to reduce OpEx (operational expenditure) for a variety of convergent TV services, such as over-the-top (OTT) video, web TV, and traditional IPTV. It supports MPEG transport streams, Adobe Flash, Apple HLS, Microsoft Smooth Streaming, MPEG-DASH, and now HEVC. It also supports statistical encoding, web TV subtitles, and DASH content protection.
The A/V Codec Analyzer is a testing and measurement tool that delivers in-depth analysis of HEVC, MPEG-2, and H.264 video.
The most current version of ViBE VS7000 is now available. The A/V Codec Analyzer enhanced with HEVC will hit the market at the end of September both as a standalone program and included with the VTS500 video test system.
"With HEVC support, we are clearing a path for our customers to deliver the most advanced HD and ultra HD video offerings on any type of device and over any type of network," says Eric Gallier, vice president of marketing for Thomson Video Networks.
Thomson will demonstrate its HEVC support during IBC 2013.
ViBE VS7000 will join Anevia's ViaMotion system for catch-up TV, OTT streaming, and on-demand video delivery
