TANDBERG Television receives an $8 million order for MPEG-4 AVC encoders

January 4, 2007

TANDBERG Television has received an order valued in excess of $8 million from a leading North American satellite broadcaster for its second-generation MPEG-4 AVC HD EN8090 video compression system.

TANDBERG Television did not identify the company directly, but in February 2005 DIRECTV penned a $9 million deal with TANDBERG Television to deploy the first of 26 MPEG-4 AVC HD enabled transponders in a system using the company’s EN5990 real-time HD encoders for MPEG-4 AVC encoding.

The contract is a continuation of the direct-to-home provider’s deployment of HD content to local markets.
