Telairity launches HD H.264 video encoding motherboard
Telairity will make its real-time H.264 HD compression technology available in the form of a motherboard solution that OEMs can use to create next-generation broadcast encoders.
The TM8000 motherboard accepts uncompressed 1080i and 720p (4:2:2) HD-SDI video inputs and encodes in compliance with the H.264 Main profile, Level 4 standard. Users can select between constant bit rate (CBR) and variable bit rate (VBR) encoding options with bit rates up to 20Mb/s. Compressed video and audio is output on an MPEG-2 transport stream via DVB ASI.
OEMs can customize the TM8000 using their own mezzanine or add-in cards to enable audio encoding and transport stream outputs for specific applications. Telairity also offers the TM8000A mezzanine add-in card with MPEG-4 AAC-LC audio encoding and transport stream-out functionality.
