BBC uses Scopus encoders for Olympics

The BBC is using MPEG-4 encoders from Scopus Video Networks, a provider of digital video networking solutions, at the Olympic Games.

Scopus’ UE-9420 dense encoders were used by the BBC for transmission of video feeds from Beijing to its London offices for the logging of scores and statistics.

Scopus was selected because of its high video quality at low bit rates. The UE–9420 is able to distinguish granular picture details and offers two H.264 channels in a 1RU chassis. It combines IP and ASI outputs, ASI cascading capabilities, and optional DVB scrambling.

The UE-9420’s IP output enables the BBC to transmit its feeds over an IP infrastructure across continents without compromising picture quality.
