Optibase, Aspex partner to show real-time HD H.264 compression

Optibase and Aspex Semiconductor partnered to create a real-time HD H.264 video ingest server demonstration system that Optibase highlighted at NAB2007.

The Creator HD ingest workstation demonstrator captures uncompressed 1920 x 1080 HD video using the HD-SDI interface and compresses it in real time to a High Profile H.264/AVC stream for IPTV broadcast, video-on-demand servers or HD-DVD/Blu-Ray authoring. The solution incorporates Aspex's Accelera Advanced Video Encoder (AVE) solution, a family of PCI-X/PCI Express plug-in cards that accelerate video compression in a standard workstation.

The Optibase Creator Ingest Server content creation solution is seamlessly integrated into the broadcast workflow. It is designed for multiple encoding formats, such as H.264 AVC, MPEG-2 and WindowsMedia9, as well as real-time HD and SD video compression.
