RGB Networks announced its new Video Multiprocessing Gateway (VMG) Gen 2. Building on the first-generation platform, the VMG Gen 2 is the heart of RGB's "Multiscreen 2.0" live streaming solution for TV Everywhere services. The VMG Gen 2 increases stream processing density and capacity over the first-gen product and is designed to transcode more than 1,000 output video streams in a single chassis.The key component of the VMG Gen 2 solution is a new TCM2+ transcoder module. The scalable plug-in module is designed to more than double the transcoding capacity of its predecessor. Along with the new NPM2+ network controller, the modules are housed in either of RGB's new chassis, available in 8RU or 14RU models. Enhanced video on the transcoder is enabled by new motion-adaptive de-interlacing and improved scaling technology.The VMG Gen 2 is managed by RGB's new multi-node workflow management system, which is intended to allow operators to configure and control a cluster of VMG Gen 2 chassis and TransAct Packager devices. The VMG Gen 2 will be demonstrated at NAB in Las Vegas.
