A single scalable network For your video as well as your computer needs

Take the next step

Video at the edge

The integration of video content and video equipment with Internet Protocol networks is the next big step in media.

Though the world is moving to one big network, not everyone can afford the same position in its topology.

This change has already taken place in some organizations. There’s no longer any reason to design, install and maintain a separate infrastructure for AV transport and communications, when you already have an IP network. Think of the savings in cost and frustration: No more extra cable pulls. No more worries about signal loss, noise and degradation. No more troubleshooting of complex, nonstandard systems. In most cases, you can be ready for IPTV with inexpensive, straightforward upgrades to your existing network. You’ll gain flexibility, control, integration, reliability and efficiency, not only for your video program but across the organization. A single network for your voice, data and video applications is within reach. What has been missing is a practical, affordable means of bringing analog and digital media formats to the network in real time. We offer a solution that is reliable 24/7, easy to manage and support, scalable and based on the latest industry standards.

At or near the center of the net are the largest telcos, cable companies, government agencies, content delivery network and Internet providers. Very large organizations like these can afford the most expensive servers and encoders because they can spread their costs over hundreds of thousands of users or subscribers. Smaller organizations have much more limited budgets, yet their clients and employees still expect the best production values. At Visionary Solutions, we design our products for people living and working at the edge of the public Internet as well as those using LANs, WANs and virtual private networks. We engineer our “edge acquisition” and “edge distribution” products to be cost effective, easy to use and of very high quality. We are pushing the envelope to provide value in a new technology, making us the cost performance leader in professional IPTV.

Full-screen, full-resolution digital video Visionary Solutions encoders produce full-motion, fullresolution standard or high definition video streams in MPEG-2 or h.264/MPEG-4 formats. Video and audio are processed in real time for digital delivery to private or public viewers connected to high speed LANs, WANs or the Internet. Advantages include: ® Real-time encoding from live or prerecorded sources ® Standard and high-definition video with stereo audio ® Transport over an affordable IP infrastructure ® Compatible with multicast, wecast and video-on-demand protocols

VSI encoders provide audio/video quality that rivals competitive broadcast equipment costing up to five times more. Depending on the product, our encoders can provide from 1.5 to 15 megabits per second (Mbps). MPEG-2 at 4 - 7 Mbps is roughly equivalent to what you’d see from a digital cable feed or home satellite dish and very close to a DVD. Higher bit rates give you a little more sharpness, fewer artifacts and crisper color. They are recommended for the most critical applications. The latest compression standard, referred to as h.264 or MPEG-4 Part 10/AVC, is up to four times more efficient than MPEG-2 and can deliver standard or high definition video with a huge savings in bandwidth. VSI customers are using our products for broadcast and cable television feeds, building-wide TV distribution systems, conference center AV, university webcasts, multicasts and podcasts, digital signage networks, educational and corporate TV, videoconferencing and telemedicine.

Located on the California coastline just south of Santa Barbara, VSI was founded in 1995 and is privately held. We design and manufacture all of our equipment in the United States. We are known for the quality and value of our products and our professional tech support.


What can IPTV do for you ? Visionary Solutions has over 4,000 encoders installed worldwide, used in a broad array of applications.

In a regional broadcast or cable TV station Smaller TV broadcasters often need to transport high quality video from remote feeds to the studio or from the station to parent networks.

• A number of network TV affiliates use VSI gear to encode news and weather feeds and transport them to their studios for over-the-air broadcast.

• AndoverTV, a PEG station in Massachusetts, uses AVN220 encoders to transport video over the town’s virtual LAN from five remote locations, then serves it in real time to Comcast and Verizon.

• A Colombian radio station is webcasting music videos from their website, telemusicahit.com, using our PackeTV Webcaster.

At a school or university Visionary Solutions’ educational customers use our systems for media distribution, webcasting and multicasts. • Huron Valley Schools in Southeastern Michigan use VSI encoders in building-wide systems that distribute TV and educational videos to multiple classrooms. • Michigan Tech University uses AVN210 encoders to multicast student-produced programming on the Internet2.

• The Madison County School District in Georgia uses VSI hardware to encode video from their public-access educational channel and distribute it to classroom computers and projection systems over their IP infrastructure. • Blue Ridge Community College in Virginia multicasts an internal video information channel across their campus using VSI gear.

On a corporate or government network Moving news, public information and training videos over an enterprise network can enhance and simplify critical communications.

• A Chicago-based airline is streaming 17 TV and cable news feeds to executives so they can monitor major media coverage from their PCs.

• The AFL-CIO is using a VSI system to encode eight cable news feeds, including CNN and C-SPAN, and stream them over its wide area network for executive use.

• A number of other corporate and government offices, including Northrop Grumman, Sandia National Laboratories, NASA’s Johnson Space Center and Raytheon are using VSI gear for various video distribution applications.

In a digital signage network VSI systems provide an affordable way to utilize IP networks to distribute high-impact public notices, advertising and emergency messages. • Michigan Tech is using Visionary Solutions equipment to expand and replace a campus-wide signage and emergency broadcast system by tying an existing head end into its IP network. • Progressive Gaming International Corporation is using VSI encoders for signage applications in a number of casinos.


In a hospital, hotel or multi-residence building Private network administrators use Visionary Solutions products to multicast TV and in-house video to viewers across large buildings and campuses. • Metro Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan encodes 54 satellite TV channels, then delivers them, together with educational videos, to 208 patient rooms, lobbies and public areas over their IP network.

• A number of large hotel and condominium projects are underway worldwide using VSI equipment to encode television for distribution to guest rooms and residences.

For AV distribution and overflow rooms Moving multimedia content to breakout and overflow rooms typically requires expensive switchers and high-cost wiring. VSI customers use IP infrastructure, cutting costs dramatically with no loss of quality or control. • U.S. District Courts in New York, Louisiana, Virginia, Rhode Island and Mississippi are using VSI encoders to transport audio and video from higherprofile trials and hearings to overflow rooms able to handle large audiences.

• Several large corporations are doing the same within their conference and training centers. • The Loma Linda University School of Dentistry encodes video in operating rooms for viewing in classrooms and lecture halls.

At rural telcos and smaller ISPs Smaller telecommunications companies and Internet service providers are using VSI gear for video multicasts and webcasts. • A number of overseas and niche domestic providers will soon offer multicast and on-demand television services to their subscribers over an IP infrastructure.

• Several domestic and overseas firms, including Qwest Communications, Iowa Communications Network, and the West African Togo Telecom use VSI encoders for video transport and backhaul applications on their internal networks.

In videoconferencing or telemedicine In situations where you regularly connect to a fixed number of locations over a private network, VSI gear can be considerably less expensive than traditional teleconferencing tools. It can also use less bandwidth and provide far better quality. With this type of setup, there is no need for a traditional conferencing codec, gateway or MCU, and there are no connection costs once you have configured your network.

• Cisco Systems uses AVN-series encoders to demonstrate network capabilities in a number of hospital applications. • Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore is using VSI gear for intra-hospital video communications. • Several school districts around the nation are considering linking all of their buildings in this manner for affordable, high-end distance learning.

Our customers continue to find new uses for our products. Be sure to check our website for updates and customer case studies.


HIGHEST-QUALITY VIDEO OVER AN IP NETWORK OR THE INTERNET Industry standard formats – no need for proprietary software or special wiring

IP Video Encoders Visionary Solutions encoders can turn video from almost any source into full-screen, full-resolution Internet Protocol digital video in real time. Each AVN unit encodes one channel of standard or high definition video and audio and streams it at extremely high quality over LAN or WAN infrastructures. Each encoder connects via a standard RJ-45 Ethernet port and provides 30 frames per second and full screen resolution of 720 x 480 (or 1920 x 1080)–or you can stream at a reduced resolution to conserve bandwidth. Viewers can see transmitted video directly on a PC or Macintosh (with appropriate plug-in installed) or on an analog TV monitor using an optional decoder box.
