Fujitsu offers AVC SD/HD encoder
Fujitsu’s new IP-9500 video encoder is designed for broadcast contribution and distribution networks with superior image quality and low bandwidth requirements. Housed within a 1RU 50W low-power compact design, it also supports HD satellite newsgathering (SNG) applications that require high picture quality at SD bit rates with low delay.
Featuring advanced H.264 compression technology, the IP-9500 produces high-quality HD images at bit rates of 4Mb/s-27Mb/s — less than half those of comparable MPEG-2 technology. That conserves satellite and network bandwidth, which cuts costs and enables high-quality HD feeds using existing SD infrastructure.
Other features include: 300ms low latency; low bit rates; DVB-ASI or IP transports for network flexibility; H.264 High Profile @ Level 4 coding; robust FEC/ARQ technology for high QoS over the Internet; and full compatibility with industry standard decoders.
