Thomson Video Networks will feature its comprehensive and best-in-class portfolio of video compression solutions, which enable operators to deliver high-quality video services to TVs, PCs, and mobile devices.

ViBE EM3000 HD Encoder
The ViBE EM3000 HD encoder now features advanced 3D functionality and also boasts an additional general compression performance gain of 15 percent. The upgraded ViBE video compression range is already on the air broadcasting pan-European sports content.

ViBE EM1000/EM2000 Encoders
The ViBE EM1000 and ViBE EM2000 encoders now support MPEG-2/4 compressed input, providing the ability to re-encode signals received on ASI or IP. With this option, the ViBE EM1000 and EM2000 become a true Swiss Army® Knife, giving broadcasters the ability to reduce infrastructure costs on the path to a full IP architecture with no compromise on picture quality. Built-in DVB subtitle transcoding capabilities are also now offered in the ViBE EM1000 and ViBE EM2000 encoders. This new DVB subtitle software license, based on Cavena technology, simplifies the management of DVB subtitle redundancy and saves space by avoiding external subtitling equipment.

ViBE Mobile TV Encoder
The cost-effective ViBE Mobile TV encoder for MPEG-4/H.264 video compression and HE-AAC audio compression features Scalable Video Coding (SVC) as well as a unique Region of Interest (ROI) encoding system.

3D and 3G Contribution Solutions
Thomson Video Networks is showcasing cutting-edge 3D innovations with its ViBE EM3000 HD encoder, which now ensures — thanks to the product’s precision, consistency, and excellent compression performance — that 3D shoots are encapsulated in a single stream, delivered in perfect synchronization, and feature exemplary video quality. The company will also spotlight the ViBE VA5004 codec, which comprises a state-of-art JPEG 2000 compression engine, making it an ideal codec for high-quality SD, HD, and 3D contribution transmission over telecommunication links.
