Sarnoff introduces real-time PC-based MPEG-2 software encoders

Sarnoff, the Princeton, NJ-based technology development company, has announced two MPEG-2 software encoders that deliver high-quality real-time video and embedded stereo audio on standard Windows-based PCs.

Sarnoff’s RTV-100 digital TV software, aimed at broadcast and television applications, converts an uncompressed analog or digital program into a single MPEG-2 transport stream. The RDV-100 version, targeted at system suppliers, transfers camcorder, DV video and audio, or Web content into an MPEG-2 program stream for recording on DVDs or distribution over home networks.

Both versions use Sarnoff’s vision-optimized encoding (VOE) algorithms to produce video at 4Mb/s.

The DTV-100 encoder is targeted at TV stations and cable headends that need instant conversion of D1 video into an MPEG-2 stream for digital television broadcast or distribution over a cable system. Typical uses include conversion of ENG fields or transmission of local studio programming. Coded video sizes include 720x480, 640x480, 528x480, 480x480 and 352x480 pixels.
