VITEC Acquires IPtec

VITEC, a worldwide provider of advanced video encoding and streaming solutions, has announced the strategic acquisition of IPtec Inc., a developer and manufacturer of industry-leading solutions for low-latency transfer of telemetry and video-over-IP networks, the company said.

This acquisition is the third the company has made within this vertical in the last 18 months, continuing VITEC´s growth in broadcast contribution and remote production.

Effective this month, this acquisition will add IPtec´s product families to the VITEC lineup. This includes the VNP Series video network processors, which support full-duplex encode-decode; H.264, AVC-I, and MPEG-2 video standards; and AAC and MPEG-1 Layer II audio standards, in a redundantly powered ½ RU package.

The current IPtec VNP Series will be maintained as its product roadmap merges into VITEC´s HEVC portfolio offering. VITEC will also add the TNP Telemetry Network Processor Series, which addresses the need for transmitting timing-sensitive data signals over IP networks in telemedicine, defense, and industrial applications.
