Omneon announces AVC-Intra HD support

Omneon announced server support for the AVC-Intra high-performance HD format at InterBee 2007 in Japan.

The new MediaPort modules for the Omneon Spectrum media server and the Omneon MediaDeck integrated server will provide real-time encoding and decoding of HD material using the AVC-Intra codec.

AVC-Intra is based on the advanced MPEG-4 Part 10 Intra standard and offers high-quality record and playout at roughly half the bit rate of MPEG-2-based codecs. With the new MIP-5600 line of MediaPorts for Spectrum and MediaDeck systems, incoming raw video feeds can be encoded in the AVC-Intra format in real time, creating AVC-I formatted files that can be accessed and edited by nonlinear editors supporting the format. AVC-Intra files can then be decoded by the MediaPorts for playout.

The MIP-5600 line of MediaPorts, which includes the MIP-5601 and MIP-5602 for the Spectrum system and the MDM-5601 for MediaDeck, is based on the AVC-Intra specification by Panasonic.
