This afternoon I met with Victor Herring, senior director, Video Solutions Group, Fujitsu Computer Products of America. He showed me the company's new IP-900, a compact MPEG-4 AVC encoder for real-time IP transmission of HD and SD content for news gathering and remote applications.
The encoder features low power consumption and a compact size. At 1RU and half a rack wide, "you save money and precious rack space," Herring said.
The IP-900 is designed to be cost efficient for mobile television newsgathering. Its versatility and high-performance capabilities enable broadcasters to deploy the encoder in unfavorable environments to ensure that the entire transmission is intact.
