Fujitsu introduces IP-9500 encoder
Fujitsu has introduced the IP-9500, a new line of video encoder/decoders that enables broadcast-quality high-definition video over Internet Protocol (IP) and Digital Video Broadcast (DVB) networks.
Using H.264 video encoding, the IP-9500 enables live transmission of high-quality HDTV at about half the bit rate of typical MPEG-2 encoders.
The device also features robust Forward Error Correction (FEC) for IP network deployment. The unit offers best-in-class picture quality at low bit-rates and low latency.
With its compact construction and low latency encoding mode, the IP-9500 can be used in remote sites for Electronic News Gathering (ENG), as well as at most contribution and distribution applications. In addition, the IP-9500 can be directly connected to the latest HDTV cameras and displays via HD-SDI and HDMI interfaces.
