At InfoComm in Las Vegas, ATX will be featuring its VidiPlay as part of its end-to-end IP video solutions for local or private IP networks. The system includes UCrypt gateways, DigiVu II encoders, VersAtive Pro transcoders, and VidiPlay middleware.
The system can include IP set-back boxes and smart TV clients to deliver IP video to large format displays (TVs) as well as clients for PCs, tablets, and other multiscreen devices. VidiPlay also manages client authentication and access control and provides client UI customization. It supports an interactive program guide (IPG), VOD, nPVR and digital signage.
VidiPlay uses ATX's hardware such as gateways for live TV content ingest, encoders for local content, and transcoders for additional video processing, as well as adding features for content viewing and control.
ATX's UCrypt QAM-to-IP (Q2IP) gateway is designed to ingest content from any cable provider's source signal, up to 60 MPEG-2/H.264, HD/SD video streams, and output them with Pro:Idiom encryption or in-the-clear IP format.
ATX's DigiVu II encoders are intended for local channel insertion and backhaul applications. They offer multi-input, multichannel and PEG encoding to QAM and IP. Video inputs include HD/SD-SDI, CVBS, HDMI, VGA and component. Outputs include MPEG-2/H.264, SD/HD and multiple output profile encoding. They feature optional integrated Zixi Feeder or VideoFlow DVP technologies for video delivery over the Internet.
