German broadcasters commits to AVC-Intra for future HD installations

Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen (ZDF), Germany's national public television broadcaster, has committed to AVC-Intra for future HD installations across the entire company, Panasonic PBITS said Nov. 14.

The Mainz-based broadcaster is upgrading all of its facilities to be HDTV capable and will introduce AVC-Intra technology as part of its HD roadmap.

With its I-Only compression, AVC-Intra produces stable images that are unaffected by adjacent frames and meets professional needs. AVC-Intra has doubled the compression ratio of MPEG-2, even with I-Only compression. Its intraframe predictive and context-adaptive entropy coding are particularly effective methods for boosting compression efficiency.
