igolgi’s VIVACE 4K HEVC encoding platform series is a very versatile, compact, high quality and reliable encoding platform with a variety of configurations for standards based encoding. This product is well suited for ATSC 3.0 applications and for operators planning to upgrade to 4K HEVC Encoders.

Using multiple 3G-HD-SDI inputs for the 4K signal, a baseband signal with embedded audio is encoded into HEVC streams at very high quality over a variety of supported resolutions and bit rates. A variety of lower resolutions are also supported.
Simultaneous outputs over ASI (multiple outputs for redundancy) and IP makes the VIVACE encoder a complete system solution for broadcasters

In addition, the VIVACE platform can optionally support the CALM act and offers Emergency Alert System (EAS) integration through a CVBS or IP input interface.
Static PSIP and input interface (over IP) to support an external dynamic PSIP generator is also available as a standard feature.
