Hungarian service provider Invitel has chosen RGB Networks to provide video processing technology to enable the conversion of its HD services from MPEG-2 to H.264 for bandwidth-efficient distribution.
RGB Networks is supplying its Video Multiprocessing Gateway (VMG) platform to Invitel. The implementation was carried out by system integrator HFC Technics.
“To accommodate the changing requirements of our distribution model we needed a flexible solution that would enable us to effortlessly transcode our existing programme content between different codecs, without any impact on video quality,” said Ádám Bognár, network development and operations senior manager at Invitel. “With the flexibility to perform a number of different transcoding functions within the same platform, while still delivering premium video quality, RGB’s VMG made the most sense financially and operationally, as well as for subscriber satisfaction.”
