SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- July 30, 2007 --
Telairity today announced that DVC DigitalVideo Computing GmbH, a leading European supplier for the digital video, presentation, and HDTV markets, is adding Telairity's HD and SD real-time encoding platforms, based on advanced H.264/AVC (MPEG-4) compression technology, to its product lineup in a reseller agreement.
The agreement between Telairity and DVC aims simultaneously to broaden DVC's product portfolio and make Telairity's breakthrough encoder technology available to a wider range of European customers in the broadcast, satellite, cable, IPTV, and telecommunications sectors.
"Our agreement with DVC provides a strong sales channel for Telairity's encoder products into European markets where the DVC name is recognized for technical excellence and superior customer service," said Howard Sachs, president and CEO of Telairity. "DVC is an outstanding partner, helping us drive the worldwide broadcast industry transition to advanced H.264/AVC video compression technology."
The addition of Telairity's H.264 encoding platform to DVC's line of products for the HDTV, digital video, broadcasting, and streaming media markets gives the wide spectrum of broadcast content providers a single world-class vendor for their various equipment needs.
"Telairity's encoding platform is the industry's best-in-class solution for H.264 compression and will help our global customers make a smooth transition to multichannel SD and HD programming using the latest compression standard," said Harald Naether, general manager of DVC. "Telairity and DVC share a common mission of providing innovative technologies that raise the bar for quality programming, and at the same time give broadcast providers products with superior performance, value, and ease of use."
Telairity's H.264 encoding platforms are an essential technology for building cost-effective SDTV and HDTV services that deliver low-latency, high-quality video at typical bit rates of 1.5 Mbps to 3 Mbps for SD pictures, and 6 Mbps to 12 Mbps for HD pictures. These low bit rates enable more SD or HD channels within a defined bandwidth, and thus provide an opportunity to increase revenue per distribution channel. In addition to satellite broadcasting, applications for the Telairity H.264 encoders include news and sports streaming; content aggregation; cable, terrestrial, and IPTV distribution; VOD; and video servers.
Fully software programmable and scalable, Telairity's encoding platforms allow for easy feature and functionality upgrades over time. Operating in real time, they offer H.264/AVC compression technology at the Main Profile, Level 4, or the Fidelity Range Extension (FRext) High Profile standard.
