TANDBERG Television supports HD services for service providers
At the recent TelcoTV 2008 conference, TANDBERG Television showed the latest version of its iPlex high-density video processing platform, which now provides even greater compression quality using MPEG-4 AVC transcoding for the delivery of HD programming. Part of a complete end-to-end IPTV solution, iPlex enables a wide range of IPTV, HDTV and VOD services.
The latest iPlex UltraCompression platform redefines the economics of HD transmission and provides major improvements in picture quality, offering high-quality video images at extremely low bit rates. New image-enhancing techniques such as a single slice video processing architecture, multipass analysis and look-ahead encoding also improve efficiencies and reduce bandwidth usage. When compared with previous generations of HD MPEG-4 AVC products, the iPlex UltraCompression platform can achieve significant efficiency improvements.
