I ended yesterday in the Fujitsu booth (SU10928), where I met with Dan Dalton, Fujitsu's director of new product development. The big thing going on at Fujitsu is it's new IP-9500 MPEG-4 AVC low latency encoder for HD satellite newsgathering.
He showed me a demo of how a user could put HD in an SD feed. There's an option for low latency, encoding and decoding video content at less than 300ms. And it can handle HD video from as low as 4Mb/s and as high 27Mb/s.
Listen to an audio clip of Dan talking about the Fujitsu IP-9500.
