NAB 2013: Thomson Video Networks’ Vibe VS7000 now provides support for the High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC).

HEVC aims to cut bit-rates by up to 50% compared to H.264.

Thomson said its multi-screen video encoding and transcoding system would lower operational expenditure for delivery of convergent TV services including web TV and OTT, as well as IPTV and cable applications. 

“By integrating the new HEVC compression standard into the ViBE VS7000, Thomson Video Networks is paving the way for HD and Ultra HD content on any kind of device and any kind of network,” said Eric Gallier, vice president of marketing at Thomson Video Networks.

“Combining the bandwidth savings of HEVC with exciting new technologies such as MPEG-Dash, eMBMS and LTE, the VS7000 lowers operating expenses while easing the path to video delivery in today’s multi-platform world.” 

At NAB, Thomson will demonstrate its new live and file-based HEVC encoding solution up to Ultra HD format with a range of HEVC players, including a device from Japanese mobile operator NTT DOCOMO.
