TANDBERG Television showcased its latest developments in Picture-in-Picture (PiP) technology at the Globalcomm trade show in Chicago.
The advancements enable second channel live viewing, advanced video mosaics, next-generation video programming guides, user configurable multi-view screens and the simultaneous delivery of content to mobile, handheld or Web streaming devices. The company launched an SD PiP on both the iPlex and Mediaplex video headends. These carrier-class platforms are complete headend systems in a single chassis that enables a new level of converged services over any last mile access infrastructure (xDSL, FTTx, and CATV).
TANDBERG Television also showed HD PiP capabilities on the company’s premium HD platform. Delivering 3-in-1 resolution choices, the EN5990 encoder can output: MPEG-4 AVC HD main video (either 720p or 1080i); “HD-PIP,” which is user selectable with resolutions from 192 x 192, SIF through to full resolution SD running between 256Kb/s to 5Mb/s; and “Micro-PIP” with 96 x 96 (PAL)/96 x 80 (NTSC) resolution.
