  • Award Honors VITEC’s Streaming Innovation For The Bridge Christian Church

    SUNNYVALE, Calif. — Nov 22, 2016 — VITEC, a worldwide leader in advanced video encoding and streaming solutions, today announced it has been recognized with a Worship Facilities Solomon Award. The award highlights how VITEC’s MGW Nano HD encoder and MGW Premium HD decoder enabled The Bridge Christian Church to perfectly stream services between two campuses.

    “We’re dedicated to enabling the very best streaming video experience for our customers,” said Mark D’Addio, VITEC's vice president of business development and emerging markets. “The Solomon Award is a great honor and recognition of not only our commitment to delivering flawless, low-latency point-to-point streaming solutions but to customer service as well. We couldn’t be more proud of what we were able to help The Bridge Christian Church achieve. Their services have reached a whole new dynamic.”

    The Bridge Christian Church is a non-denominational church with two campuses in the greater Tucson area. The church’s goal was to offer a live experience at both campuses simultaneously without incurring heavy costs of utilizing a broadcast satellite service or having to record the service for non-real-time playback at the other location. To make seamless, affordable bidirectional streaming a reality, The Bridge called upon system integrator EAR Professional Audio and Video to install a VITEC MGW Nano HD encoder and MGW Premium HD decoder at each location. VITEC offered a balanced combination of high quality and low latency that is ideal for both point-to-point streaming and two-way, interactive streaming, both of which The Bridge does regularly. The ability to do so over the public Internet, without delay or error, is a technical and financial win for The Bridge.

    For the award, a panel of judges consisting of Worship Facilities magazine editors, Church Production Magazine editors, distinguished members of the WFX Advisory Board, and WFX management selected churches and their partners for excellence in facilities design, building expansion or remodeling, operation excellence, innovative use, and technical production. Entries were evaluated from an in-depth essay detailing the project goals, challenges, and the innovative solution.

    Since 1988, VITEC has been a pioneer in the design and manufacture of hardware and software for video encoding, decoding, transcoding, recording, conversion, archiving, and streaming over IP. In keeping with the company’s tradition of innovation, VITEC is the first company to bring bandwidth-efficient HEVC compression technology into the field with portable streaming appliances.

  • VITEC’s Affordable HEVC Endpoints and Integrated Renewed Vision™ Recording and Time-Slip Technology Deliver Flawless, Error-Free, Dual-Channel Video Streams to Satellite Campuses

    SUNNYVALE, Calif. — July 27, 2017 — VITEC, a worldwide leader in advanced video encoding and streaming solutions, today announced Cornerstone Christian Fellowship in Chandler, Arizona, installed VITEC’s House of Worship Multi-Site Streaming Solution at its two satellite campuses. Featuring VITEC’s MGW Ace Encoder and MGW Series Decoder fully integrated with Renewed Vision™ ProVideoServer™ (PVS), the solution enables the organization to deliver two synchronized, low-latency, and broadcast-quality camera feeds to each site, making it the ideal dual-input, dual-output, time-slipped media record and playout server.

     “Cornerstone is a growing church committed to offering an inclusive community that unites our campuses with one message,” said Marty Sawyers, Cornerstone’s executive pastor. “VITEC’s Multi-Site Video Streaming Solution enabled us to flawlessly stream both of camera feeds from our original campus to remote sites. Utilizing the integrated time-slip and playback capabilities of the Renewed Vision ProVideoServer, all the people who attend the services at our satellite campuses now get the same message and rich video experience that’s taking place at our main campus. VITEC not only met our budget criteria but our requirement for quality, which we weren’t willing to sacrifice.”

    With VITEC’s Houses of Worship Multi-Site Video Streaming Solution, Cornerstone is able to stream and play back its two camera feeds in perfect synchronization, at the highest HD video quality available, and at the lowest possible latency to both campuses. As a result, the campuses feel like natural extensions of the main church, providing members with a rich, engaging worship experience. Powered by VITEC’s second-generation codec (GEN2), the solution bundles VITEC’s 100-percent hardware-based IP encoders and decoders featuring HEVC (H.265) bandwidth-efficient compression with Zixi™ error-free streaming protocol, ensuring pristine video quality.

    In addition, it integrates Renewed Vision’s PVS, a four-channel HD video server from the most trusted technology provider in the worship space. This enables Cornerstone to record both of its camera feeds from the main campus, complete with embedded time code and multi-channel audio, and play back those streams at each of the satellite campuses at any time. PVS' time slip functionality, much like a DVR, allows for the immediate playback of a video, even as it continues to record from the main campus.

    Finally, VITEC’s HTTP API allowed Cornerstone to create a custom graphical user interface (GUI) to control and monitor each of the VITEC appliances from a single user interface. With a simple GUI, all Cornerstone volunteers can centrally operate the system with ease. This streamlines production, reducing any technical roadblocks that come with managing multiple systems and keeps Sunday services operating smoothly.

    “Cornerstone illustrates the increasingly sophisticated video productions that churches today offer, and as they grow through remote sites, they want to be able to share that same message and high-quality visual experience with their entire community,” said Mark D’Addio, VP of business development and emerging markets at VITEC. “VITEC’s House of Worship Multi-Site Streaming Solution enables organizations to deliver affordable, high-quality video streams using our advanced HEVC endpoints, and an enjoyable streaming experience that’s tailored to each site with Zixi for error correction and Renewed Vision for recording, time-slip, and playback capabilities.” More information on VITEC's full line of products is available at www.vitec.com.
