A Dolby encoding and DASH support T homson Video Networks have introduced Dolby(R) audio processing and MPEG-DASH support for the ViBE VS7000 video system, a breakthrough “anything in, anything out” encoding/ transcoding platform for Web TV, over-the-top (OTT) services, IPTV, and cable delivery. Introduced at NAB last year, Thomson Video Networks’ ViBE VS7000 video system now provides a full range of Dolby audio technologies. Formerly available with AAC, HE-AAC, and MPEG-1 Layer II audio features, this versatile platform introduces Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby Digital encoding and decoding, as well as Dolby Digital to Dolby Digital Plus transcoding, dramatically enriching the audio processing toolbox of the ViBE VS7000 with authentic surround sound capability. t NAB TransMedia Dynamics (TMD) introduced the Unified Media Services (UMS) toolkit. It provides a simple way for media services from multiple vendors to be integrated into a single, comprehensive asset management and delivery platform. With today’s keen commercial awareness, content owners and broadcasters need their asset management systems to be much more than simple libraries, said Tony Taylor, chairman and CEO of TMD. They need to integrate media services from ingest through transcoding to cloud storage and content delivery networks, and they need to synchronise rich metadata with multiple databases. This is something we have been building for years, but with the introduction of UMS we have simplified the process based on open standards. HD Elite System packs powerful punch I ntegrated Microwave Technologies, LLC (IMT) featured its RF Central microLite HD Elite system at NAB.
