VITEC Reveals Diamond+ OG Encoder and Highlights Future Thinking at IBC 2022


PARISVITEC, a market-leading provider of IPTV, Video Streaming and Digital Signage
Solutions, will showcase its latest products and initiatives at IBC 2022 on Stand 7.A39 (RAI,
Amsterdam 9-12 September, 2022). Under the spotlight will be the company’s newest, best-in-
class IP video products and services – including its MGW Diamond+ OG Encoder – as well as
an increased focus on how these solutions can help enterprises move towards carbon

Since the last IBC in 2019, VITEC’s IPTV and digital signage product portfolio has been
strengthened by the acquisition of Exterity. This deal has opened a new chapter for VITEC and
puts the company in a strong position to capitalise on the growth of businesses deploying IP
video streaming solutions across their enterprises. “I’m very much looking forward to IBC as it
always provides an opportunity for the broadcast industry to get together, which is especially
important this year,” says Bruno Teissier, SVP of Sales, VITEC. “It’s exciting to be able to talk
with the industry about some of the significant developments that have been happening at
VITEC in the interim. We’re delighted to showcase our MGW Diamond+ OG Encoder at IBC,
which will deliver huge benefits in many broadcast applications.”

Diamond+ OG Encoder

Easy integration and robust streaming: MGW Diamond +OG Encoder
The MGW Diamond+ OG, making its first EMEA appearance at IBC, is a 4K/Multichannel
HEVC, H.264 and MPEG-2 encoder in an openGear ® (OG) card format. This latest addition to
VITEC’s encoding range is designed for a wide range of contribution or point-to-point streaming
applications over IP within production studios, broadcast facilities or corporate server rooms.

Typical applications for the MGW Diamond+ OG include site-to-site primary distribution; remote
production over unconstrained networks; remote/at home production over the internet/REMI, as
well as standard IPTV distribution. Featuring Ultra High Definition and High Dynamic Range
(HDR) support, Diamond+ OG can capture and stream 4K 60p from either its 4x3G-SDI or 12G-
SDI inputs, and soon from its SMPTE 2110 input (over 25Gbit SFP interface). The card
supports 4:2:2 10-bit encoding; multichannel audio encoding as well as Zixi™, SRT, RIST and

Pro-MPEG transport protection technology for reliable video, audio transmission over lossy

IP video content anywhere, any time with ChannelLink
With more and more video feeds being streamed live over various IP transmission links,
organisations must find solutions that can efficiently and reliably manage this potentially
complex situation. Visitors to the VITEC stand will be able to preview ChannelLink, which
enables delivery of IP content anywhere, at any time with the ease-of-use of legacy baseband
video matrices. ChannelLink acts as a central hub where IP channels from the field can be
reliably received and retransmitted live, acting as an extremely efficient gateway across any IP
network. It is especially well suited for stream management, routing, rebroadcasting or IPTV
stream reflection over WAN/Internet. For broadcasters, ChannelLink simplifies content delivery
of live channels from news agencies as well as sports or entertainment venues.
