New Features Added in Harmonic's ViBe 4K
FREMONT, CA: Harmonic (NASDAQ: HLIT), a provider of video delivery infrastructure solutions, announced the launch of new features in its product, ViBE 4K. The real-time encoding solution delivers Ultra HD (UHD) low-latency, high-bitrate HEVC 4:2:2 10-bit encoding for 4K contribution applications. The ViBe 4K encoder is one of the solutions that have joined the Harmonic product family as a result of the company's recent acquisition of Thomson Video Networks, a firm, offering video compression solutions.
The reduction of encoder latency to less than a second, and increasing the maximum encoding bitrates to 160 Mbps, will enable the ViBe 4K to address to key latency and picture fidelity requirements for contribution applications. Along will good picture quality, clients need to retain maximum color information and facilitate editing and master archiving of received content. With its full-frame, full-Group of Pictures (GOP), 4:2:2 10-bit implementation, the ViBE 4K encoder is an ideal solution for delivering artifact-free pictures when compared to UHD contribution solutions that rely on multiple encoders, along with uniform rendering of single-texture areas such as the grass on a soccer field. The new capabilities for ViBe 4K encoder will be available in June.
“By leveraging High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) for contribution applications, Harmonic is allowing customers to embrace Ultra High Definition (UHD) within the constraints of typical satellite contribution links without compromising picture quality,” says Bart Spriester, SVP of video products at Harmonic.
