TANDBERG Television to unveil MPEG-4 AVC contribution, distribution solution
TANDBERG Television will launch an MPEG-4 AVC HD 4:2:2 solution for the contribution and distribution market.
The new system includes an MPEG-4 AVC HD 4:2:2 encoder and professional receiver supporting up to 1080p50/60 HD encoding and offering 10-bit precision. The new product opens the way to the large-scale migration from MPEG-2 to MPEG-4 AVC for high-quality 4:2:2 HD video used in the professional market.
The new product will enable content owners and broadcasters to deliver higher quality video for the same cost or meet current service requirements with less bandwidth.
TANDBERG Television also will launch its next-generation MPEG-4 AVC HD encoder for 4:2:0 video. This provides a 20 percent to 30 percent improvement in compression efficiency compared to today’s MPEG-4 AVC HD encoding. It will enable direct-to-home providers to carry more HDTV channels without increasing bandwidth costs.
