RGB Networks Named Finalist in TelcoTV 2010 Vision Award
RGB’s Application Media Server Recognized for Innovation in Encoding
Sunnyvale, California – November 4, 2010 – RGB Networks, the leader in network video processing, announced that its Application Media Server (AMS) has been selected as a finalist in the 2010 TelcoTV Vision Awards, which will be presented at next week’s TelcoTV trade show in Las Vegas. The Vision Awards recognize the most innovative and visionary new products, services and applications announced in the communications industry this past year.
RGB’s AMS Transcoder is a transcoding appliance ideal for the delivery of live and on-demand programming to PCs, mobile devices, and set-top boxes. The AMS Transcoder has the flexibility to support several transcoding modes of operation including stream-to-stream (S2S), file-to-file (F2F), and best-in-class on-demand transcoding (ODT). RGB’s unique ODT solution combines file-to-file and file-to-stream transcoding to stream video as it is requested and simultaneously writes the transcoded content to a file for later viewing.
“Today’s PCs and mobile devices have proven particularly difficult for operators delivering streaming video largely because of the many differences in codecs and protocols supported. However, with the AMS transcoding solution, content providers now have the tools they need to seamlessly deliver video without breaking the bank,” said Andy Salo, Director, Product Marketing for RGB Networks. “Being recognized by the TelcoTV Vision Awards program for the second year in a row for our innovation in encoding is further validation not only of RGB’s unique transcoding solutions, but also of our continued commitment to leading the three screen revolution.”
Last year RGB’s Video Multiprocessing Gateway (VMG™) won the TelcoTV Vision Award in the encoding category. The modular, carrier-class VMG is the industry’s highest capacity transcoding solution. It has been deployed by cable operators and telecom carriers in large-scale trials of multi-screen video delivery. The VMG complements the AMS and when combined they form a unique solution capable of delivering and monetizing video across all three screens.
This year’s Vision Award finalists were chosen by a distinguished panel of industry executives and analysts. Award winners will be announced on Wednesday, November 10, 2010, at 12:30 p.m. in room Titian 2304 at the Venetian in Las Vegas.
A demonstration of the AMS will be available at RGB’s booth—#219—at TelcoTV 2010, November 10-11 in Las Vegas.
