Rgb Vmg8 300x180RGB Networks' new VMG‑8 inherits all the transcoding, transrating, ad insertion and other video processing capabilities of the company's VMG family, and packages them in a new seven rack unit (RU) chassis. The VMG‑8 holds up to eight modules, providing a compact alternative to RGB’s larger VMG-14. It can also accommodate RGB’s recently added AMP module, a Linux-based blade developed initially for real-time audio transcoding, without exceeding the chassis’ capacity when a backup module is added.

The VMG-8 is designed for TV Everywhere requirements, including addressing an increasing array of applications and supporting an expanding range of end user device types. The VMG‑8 is intended for small to medium-sized deployments or deployments at the edge, and is complemented by the VMG‑14, which offers greater capacity, allowing for the simultaneous processing of more than 500 streams in a single chassis.

In its redundant configuration, the VMG‑8 can be configured with three video transcoder modules, one audio transcoder module and a single controller module for transcoding programs to more than 140 streams for delivery to any IP-enabled device.
