SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- RGB Networks, the leading provider of scalable multiscreen IP video delivery solutions, today announced the expansion of its Enhanced Video Intelligence Architecture (eVIA) to include the newly upgraded TransAct Encoder/Transcoder. Adding integrated encoding to RGB’s existing TransAct Transcoder product, the new TransAct Encoder/Transcoder now offers the ability to ingest uncompressed SDI-sourced live content, as well as IP and file input, for live or on-demand IP video delivery to smartphones, tablets, PCs and connected TVs, as well as traditional set-top boxes. In combination with hardware and software enhancements to the TransAct family for improved video quality and reliability, RGB’s eVIA multiscreen solution remains on the leading edge of IP video technology.

TV Everywhere services are rapidly becoming a required complement to traditional video experiences, and subscribers are increasingly expecting the same high quality, choice and variety of services. As such, video service providers (VSPs) need to be able to navigate the challenges of this new IP world, expand their services to include the delivery of both live and on-demand video to any IP video-enabled device, and subsequently reap the benefits of multiscreen’s rapid evolution.

The enhancements to RGB’s eVIA multiscreen delivery and monetization solution strengthen RGB’s TV Everywhere ecosystem and enable VSPs to prepare for the next phase of multiscreen. This robust suite of products, with a wide range of encoding, transcoding, packaging and ad insertion capabilities, includes RGB’s award-winning Video Multiprocessing Gateway (VMG), TransAct Packager and TransAct Encoder/Transcoder. The upgraded TransAct Encoder/Transcoder rounds out eVIA’s capabilities with encoding and file-to-tile transcoding. These capabilities complement the robust real-time transcoding capabilities of RGB’s VMG and the flexible packaging offered by the TransAct Packager, providing VSPs with a comprehensive multiscreen IP video solution.

“The addition of the newly revamped TransAct Encoder/Transcoder to our eVIA ecosystem, gives providers the key building blocks they need to stay on the leading edge of multiscreen video delivery,” said Nabil Kanaan, Sr. Director, Product Marketing for RGB Networks. “The strengthening of eVIA opens up new opportunities for video service providers to develop compelling live and on-demand services, which increase both subscriber retention and revenue-generation, and ultimately ease their transition to a monetized, multi-device video environment.”
