Scientific-Atlanta to unveil HD AVC encoder

At IBC2006, Scientific-Atlanta will highlight the fruit of its ongoing digital encoding development program. The D9054 is a new HDTV advanced video compression (AVC) encoder designed to deliver the best compression quality using its combination of single-slice encoding and massive processing power. Its unique, full-picture architecture provides amazing HDTV quality at 8Mb/s.

A full H.264 toolset combined with sophisticated look-ahead algorithms, extensive motion and spatial prediction searches, and advanced mode decision algorithms optimize encoding efficiency. By delivering more channels over existing bandwidth, the D9054 helps expand the efficiency of current networks and enables the rapid launch of new high-quality HDTV services.
