Video streaming solutions provider VITEC has acquired Telairity, a provider of H.264 encoding workflow solutions to broadcasters worldwide. The company said the acquisition will enhance its HEVC streaming technology and further improve latency and efficiency in video streaming for broadcast clients.
"The strategic acquisition of Telairity further strengthens VITEC's position in the broadcast market," said Mark D'Addio, VITEC's senior vice president, sales and marketing. "VITEC's HEVC technology and streaming expertise address a growing need for broadcasters to reduce bandwidth requirements while maximizing video quality."
Matt McKee, formerly at Telairity, has joined VITEC as director of broadcast sales. He added, "Telairity customers have been asking for a compelling reason to upgrade their broadcast links. VITEC HEVC solutions offer the highest levels of network efficiency, video quality, and reliability especially for Digital Satellite News Gathering (DSNG) and contribution applications."
VITEC HEVC technology and solutions help enable efficient delivery of the highest- quality IPTV streams over satellite links, private networks, and the internet. Powered by VITEC HEVC GEN2+, an all-hardware compression chip, the company's MGW Ace Encoder is setting new industry standards in video quality, bit rate, and latency. The encoder provides best-in class HEVC video quality up to 4:2:2 10-bit and an encoding latency down to 10ms in ultra low latency (ULL) mode for an impressive 65ms glass-to-glass latency.
