Softel to showcase new vFlex HD platform

Softel will feature its vFlex HD, a multipurpose ancillary VBI, VANC and graphics data processing unit for HD and SD broadcast applications, at IBC2009.

Complementing the vFlex SD and offering the same functionality, the vFlex HD provides a compact, single-unit solution for multichannel configurations and complex multievent cuing and opting, enabling network operators to service client demands for flexible regional broadcasting and targeted advertising.

The vFlex HD encodes, decodes, re-encodes and regenerates VBI content, including widescreen signaling, video programming system, cuing, Teletext, subtitling, video index and PDC signals.

This gives broadcasters and network operators the flexibility to implement and integrate new services, reusing the original source ancillary data or accurately inserting replacement data. Support for OP47 and SMPTE 2031 encoding and decoding for HD-SDI means that vFlex HD can insert subtitling and other information services into the HD video path.

See Softel at IBC2009 in Stand 1.A29.
