LSI enables new video distribution applications with single-chip multiformat HD transcoder
At NAB2007, LSI introduced a single-chip HD MPEG-2 to H.264 transcoder for professional video and broadcast applications. Capable of transcoding either HD or multiple SD video streams in real time, the DX-1710 gives satellite TV and IPTV service providers a way to convert MPEG-2 content into high-quality H.264 content for delivery over their bandwidth-constrained delivery networks.
Based on the flexible LSI Domino[X] media processor architecture, the single-chip platform performs 250 billion operations per second and can be configured to transcode two SD streams simultaneously in real time from MPEG-2 to H.264, or one SD stream of MPEG-2 to VC-1.
