ATEME releases single-chip main profile MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 encoder

ATEME will highlight its new ATE4000, a single chip MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 standard definition main profile encoder.

The ATE4000 is aimed at several markets, including the broadcast digital television, IPTV, satellite, telco head-ends and professional encoders for distribution of video over wired or wireless IP networks.

The ATE4000 uses massive computing capabilities of FPGA technology to achieve best in class performance in the fastest design cycles, contrasting with the traditional multiprocessor approach complexities.

ATEME's chip features standard I/O interface, generates time stamps and NAL headers for easy encapsulation in MPEG-2 TS and RTP transport layers. Its control API combined with precise Rate Control (CBR, VBR) make it well-suited to realize the full potential of H.264 scalability in a wide range of applications.
