VITEC, a worldwide leader in advanced video solutions, today announced they will demonstrate their new, revolutionary TurboVideo2 technology for ultra low-latency delivery of HD H.264 IP video at NAB 2013 (Booth #SL6305).

VITEC will show a live demo of MGW Sprint Encoder and MGW Sprint Decoder, a set of portable appliances with HDMI, DVI and HD-SDI inputs and outputs that, together, deliver FULL HD video point to point at an unprecedented delay of less than one video frame. The set of appliances can operate in both 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 modes.
