Companies demonstrate H.264 IPTV technology in Japan
June 5, 2005
Broadband Network Systems (BNS) joined with partners Entone Technologies, Envivio and Widevine Technologies last week in Yokohama, Japan, to demonstrate a commercially deployable H.264 end-to-end IPTV solution at the Broadband World Forum Asia.
For the demo at the Broadband World Forum Asia, a BNS BP500 STB decoded several H.264 live multicast streams from Envivio's 4Caster 4500 encoder and H.264 video streams from the Entone StreamLiner network video recorder in DVD quality.
The demo included all key components needed to give IPTV operators a bandwidth-efficient, standards-based solution that is ready for deployment. In the demonstration, the BNS BP500 set-top box decoded both H.264 live multicast streams from Envivio's 4Caster 4500 encoder and H.264 video streams from the Entone StreamLiner network video recorder (a scalable video server) in DVD quality.
Widevine's conditional access and digital rights management solution, the Widevine Cypher CA system, delivered pre-encryption of video content for content security from the Entone StreamLiner to the set-top box.
BNS' Technology Integration team handled all aspects of the IPTV project deployment from design to implementation, as part of a service portfolio including strategic consulting and content aggregation for IPTV.
