TANDBERG rolls out next generation MPEG-4 AVC HD, SD encoders
TANDBERG Television has introduced its next-generation HD/SD MPEG-4 AVC encoding solutions this week at IBC2006 in Amsterdam.
The company's new compression platform is being launched simultaneously across its encoding family with the introduction of the new EN8030 MPEG-4 AVC SD and EN8090 MPEG-4 AVC SD/HD broadcast encoders, alongside the introduction of new MPEG-4 AVC HD and SD encoding modules for the Plex range of high-density, multi-channel encoders.
The new encoders enable HDTV services to be delivered at data rates below 6Mb/s with similar improvements to SD services. They are designed to let operators deliver HD and SD multi-channel and single-channel services across cable, satellite, telco and terrestrial networks.
The TANDBERG encoders use a comprehensive toolset of advanced compression video processing features, combined with new pre-processing techniques. They have a form factor common to previous units.
