TANDBERG Television debuts iPlex UltraCompression IPTV transcoders

At Telco TV 2007 this week in Atlanta, TANDBERG Television is showing its iPlex UltraCompression IPTV video processing platform and debuting its integrated transcoding capabilities in North America.

The new iPlex UltraCompression transcoder supports multiformat MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC SD and HD input streams and uses TANDBERG Television's next-generation AVC platform to transcode them to either MPEG-4 AVC SD or HD output.

Up to four UltraCompression transcoders are supported in the 1RU iPlex video processing platform. By supporting transcoding, the iPlex video processing platform ensures the integrity of metadata, including closed captioning and teletext, in the transport streams and maximizes the performance of lip-sync issues with subtitles. Additionally, when used in conjunction with bulk descrambling receivers, the iPlex transcoding architecture reduces the cost of the overall headend design and improves video quality.
