TORONTO, ON -- ViXS Systems Inc. (TSX: VXS), a pioneer and leader in media processing solutions, today announced the availability of a Ultra High Definition(UHD) 4K Golden Reference Decoder tool to test, validate, and debug 4K UHD content and deployment plans for the broadcast industry. As the broadcast market transitions to HEVC and UHD 4K, the requirement for a standardized reference tool becomes a necessity for a company planning to deploy any type of UHD 4K service.

The UHD 4K Golden Reference tool will enable content creators, service operator technologists, encoder manufacturers, and HEVC promoters to easily decode and display files from storage or from IP networks, up to 4Kp60 HEVC 10-bit. The Golden Reference tool will allow users to verify stream compliance, encoder quality parameters, transport multiplexing parameters, video output quality and compare 8-bit vs. 10-bit; all key metrics required to upgrade broadcast systems to support 4Kp60 HEVC 10-bit video across all networks.

"At NAB last week there were more than ten different Tier-1 encoder and streaming technology companies demonstrating their new products with the ViXS UDH 4K decoder. The industry response to the ViXS XCode decoder has been enormous and validates our leadership position regarding advanced video processing capabilities," said John Pomeroy, VP Sales, Infrastructure and Networking, VIXS systems Inc. "Our XCode 6400 product embodied in the UHD Golden Reference Decoder, uniquely enables operators, encoder manufacturers and others to test their networks using the same technology that will soon be deployed in their customer's homes."

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
