BSkyB selects Snell encoders for HD services

BSkyB in the U.K. has purchased seven Snell & Wilcox Memphis encoders to master content for its new HD services.

BSkyB will use the encoders to create high-quality HD Long GOP MPEG-2 streams, which will then be stored on Omneon Spectrum servers. The servers will playout HD content in SD, HD (720p or 1080i), or both. The integration of the Memphis encoders and Spectrum servers gives BSkyB
flexible interoperability for both playout and archiving applications.
