Digigami Asserts its MPEG-2 HD Encoder is Equal to H.264
Digigami said its new MegaPeg HD VBR MPEG-2 encoder is technically capable of matching the video quality of current codec H.264 encoders while simultaneously offering reduced bit-rates. Digigami is not alone in its claims; Sony recently said that MPEG-2 can achieve HD quality comparable to H.264 for the next-gen of optical disc formats--Sony's Blu-ray (one of two incompatible formats vying for DVD supremacy).

Digigami clams its MPEG-2 encoder outperforms H.264 on 720p/1080p film content, saying that its HD MPEG-2 encoder can produce VBR files at about two-thirds the bit-rate produced by current H.264 encoders, according to published reports. The company said its Web site currently demonstrates compressed material which supports its assertion.

“Will there be a shift from coax to fibre? Or a mixture between the two which will require hybrid solutions to be implemented?”
