DIRECTV to use Harmonic MPEG-4 AVC encoder

February 8, 2006


The architecture of the MV 100 permits operators to select from a range of compression cores.

DIRECTV has selected the Harmonic DiviCom MV 100 standard definition encoder for new MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) based video services.

DIRECTV is also using Harmonic's DiviTrackXE statistical multiplexing solution and NMX Digital Service Manager, a service-oriented video infrastructure monitoring and control system.

The unique architecture of the MV 100 permits operators to select from a range of compression cores, including MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC or SMPTE VC-1, according to their unique technical requirements. Field-installable software modules allow an easy transition from one compression technology to another.
