VidyoCast to Demonstrate First H.264 SVC-based Broadcast Platform at NAB

Last September, Vidyo announced its broadcast division, VidyoCast, at IBC in Amsterdam, and unveiled an array of next-generation broadcast software and hardware products based on the VidyoRouter architecture which uses H.264 SVC (Scalable Video Coding) compression technology.  Starting today, Vidyo will be demonstrating its revolutionary platform for managing Live News, Sports, Entertainment and IP Feeds. The suite of products offers SD/HD quality video transport, remote contribution, ENG, sports production, net return, Master Control back up and disaster recovery.

According to Jim O’Brien, General Manager of VidyoCast, “VidyoCast is first-to-market with a new generation of H.264 SVC-based broadcast platform based on Vidyo’s award-winning architecture, which is a significant breakthrough for live television. In addition to encoders and decoders, we offer a range of hosted IP capabilities in private networks or across the Internet. These include point-to-multipoint control, edge-switching, bandwidth optimization, and live production tools such as Digital Video Effects, accomplishing multi-party on-screen interactions more easily than the industry has ever seen. Our groundbreaking VidyoRouter is at the heart of this platform and provides cloud-based feeds management, transrating, and resolution scaling without either degrading the quality of the video or adding significant latency.”

Vidyo will be at NAB 2011

Today, VidyoCast products are being used by leading broadcasters in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa. The suite includes VidyoContribution and VidyoCentral production products as well as VidyoIP Monitor Wall and VidyoEdit Review. These broadcast products will be showcased at the NAB Show in Las Vegas and the VidyoCast will be welcoming visitors from April 11 to April 14 at the Las Vegas Convention Center’s South Hall, booth #SU 3502.

Also at NAB, Vidyo’s CEO and co-founder, Ofer Shapiro will be speaking at a session entitled “Interoperability, Quality, Security and Reliability in Telepresence.” This presentation will take place on  Tuesday,  April 12 at 11.30 am.

If you’re at NAB this week, we urge you to stop by, say hello and see the amazing VidyoCast products at Booth # SU 3502!
