IP Based Multi-Image Display & Monitoring Solution

MViP-II improves on the first generation MVIP by offering all of the same features plus fault based recording. MViP-II also offers more simultaneous decodes with up to 64 MPEG-2/H.264 SD or 32 MPEG-2 / H.264 HD or 16 HEVC HD or 32HEVC SD. The MViP-II can be used to monitor both "main screen" encodes as well as "over the top" streams including: HLS, LSS, HDS and MPEG-DASH on top of standard MPEG-2 transport streams.

MViP-ll has been developed to be used as a tool for digital headends, IPTV networks, and sites using IP for distribution with a requirement to monitor and display audio and video along with fault information and transport details on a simple to configure system.

MViP-ll supports all major video compression standards including HEVC and therefore can be used in almost any application where video and audio are being transported over IP. MViP-ll is SNMP enabled which allows VistaLINK to configure and store all monitoring values and alarms.

Integration of MViP-ll and VistaLINK allows Source Cycling, Penalty box, fault logging and reporting under a single management system with the ability to have multiple MViP-ll units or Evertz monitoring product s as a monitoring resource poll.
