Snell & Wilcox to feature Protus Ph.C for Mobile, Web TV

August 2, 2007

At IBC2007, Snell & Wilcox will showcase Protus Ph.C, a video image conditioning system for mobile and Web TV.

Protus Ph.C allows providers of mobile TV services to increase picture quality and/or reduce bandwidth requirements for delivering content to wireless, IPTV and Internet delivery platforms.

Compatible with most video compression encoders and all compression formats, Protus Ph.C works by applying a series of sophisticated image conditioning tools to video content prior to its compression and distribution over mobile TV, IPTV and Internet-based content delivery networks (CDNs). Derived from high-end broadcast and digital cinema applications, these tools include noise reduction, motion-compensated deinterlacing and scaling, which converts video to the correct scanning format, picture size, aspect ratio and frame rate required by mobile devices and computer screens.

The company will also spotlight its new Alchemist Ph.C – IP, file-based standards conversion software. Running on the company's iCR platform, Alchemist Ph.C - IP delivers transparent bidirectional conversion of video, audio and metadata between 50Hz and 60Hz TV standards.
