Fujitsu highlights IP-9500 HD encoder during HD World
Fujitsu spotlighted its IP-9500 MPEG-4 AVC HD encoder during HD World this week at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City.
Designed for broadcasters wishing to transmit remote HD content through existing satellite configurations, the IP-9500 encoder can minimize costs by using a single satellite channel to carry 1080i or 720p format HD content at data rates ranging from 4Mb/s to 20Mb/s with encoding-decoding latency of less than 300ms.
The encoder is well suited for satellite newsgathering because it allows HD news content to be transmitted in the same satellite bandwidth needed today for SD contribution.
Today's DVB-S/S2 satellite technology segments a satellite transponder into multiple individual channels. Fujitsu's IP-9500 MPEG4 AVC HD codec encoder allows high-quality HD content to be transmitted in a single DVB-S/S2 satellite channel. As a result, broadcasters can save up to 50 percent in operating costs versus having to use two channels for MPEG-2 encoded data.
