2nd-generation Video Multiprocessing Gateway from RGB

April 4, 2013

RGB Networks, the provider of scalable multiscreen IP video delivery solutions, has confirmed the availability of its Video Multiprocessing Gateway (VMG) Gen 2, the second generation model of its VMG product line.

Building on the field-proven capabilities of the first-generation platform, the VMG Gen 2 is the heart of RGB’s ’Multiscreen 2.0’ live streaming solution, which allows video service providers (VSPs) to expand and streamline their TV Everywhere services. According to RGB, the VMG Gen 2 sets new levels for stream processing density and capacity with the ability to transcode more than one thousand output video streams in a single chassis while still delivering the highest video quality.

“As many of our competitors are just field-testing their first generation solutions, we continue to outpace them with the second generation of our highly successful VMG product line, which has been proven in large scale deployments with major cable operators and telecom carriers around the world,” said Nabil Kanaan, vice president, product management for RGB Networks.

“We’ve more than doubled the density already offered by RGB’s chassis-based platform, enabling video service providers to cost effectively meet growing subscriber demand for more channels, on more devices, without compromising on video quality. Complementing this is the addition of stream conditioning for ad insertion services, another key feature for next-gen multiscreen deployments,” he added.
