Journal Broadcasting selects TANDBERG Television HD, SD encoders

Journal Broadcast Group has selected TANDBERG Television HD and SD MPEG-2 encoders as an over-the-air ATSC broadcasting solution.

TANDBERG Television's MPEG-2 encoding systems offer ATSC broadcasters newly expanded solutions for the digital transition, including active format description (AFD) signaling capabilities for downstream analog conversion.

KTNV in Las Vegas, the first of Journal Broadcast Group's stations to use the encoders, has selected a multi-pass statistical multiplexing solution, which increases the bandwidth efficiency when simultaneously broadcasting multiple streams of HD and SD.

KTNV will broadcast one HD and two SD channels in MPEG-2. Compared to a standard statistical multiplex system, TANDBERG Television's multi-pass system frees as much as 10 percent of the 19.39Mb/s ATSC allocated bandwidth for other uses.
