TANDBERG TV demos live HD MPEG-4 compression with Broadcom


At the recent 2005 International CES convention, TANDBERG and Broadcom showcased interoperability between Broadcom’s set-top box decoder reference platform and TANDBERG’s EN5990 video encoder (pictured).
TANDBERG Television and Broadcom demonstrated a live demonstration of an end-to-end encoding solution for high-definition MPEG-4 part 10 (H.264/AVC) at the International CES convention this month. Showcasing the interoperability between Broadcom’s set-top box decoder reference platform and TANDBERG’s EN5990 video encoder at the convention, the companies said the new solution allows broadcasters to upgrade their networks with advanced video compression technology.

The interoperability between the two technologies enables broadcasters to reduce the required bandwidth for HD transmission by up to half when compared against MPEG-2 performance. Most HD channels today use between 12- to 18Mb/s when employing MPEG-2 technology.

TANDBERG’S HD MPEG-4 AVC technology incorporates the Broadcom BCM97395 set-top box decoder reference design platform. It features its integrated BCM7038 dual channel HDTV and personal video recorder chip, and its BCM7411 MPEG-4/AVC video decoder/audio processor chip.
