Algolith ships HD, SD video noise-reduction cards

Algolith has begun shipping its new Algogear high-definition and standard-definition video noise-reduction cards.

The cards, introduced at NAB2007, represent the first in a series of Algogear products that offer reprogrammable core-based solutions. The cards provide broadcasters, IPTV service providers and cable companies with reprogrammable cores, allowing them to repurpose the cards’ functionality over time.

The VNR-1000-HD and VNR-1000-SD noise-reduction cards harness Algolith’s noise reduction technologies to increase picture quality and reduce bandwidth requirements for delivering content to cable, satellite and terrestrial networks, as well as IPTV delivery platforms.

Used as a pre-processor to the encoder, the Algolith cards enable video content to be compressed more efficiently, resulting in increased bandwidth to deliver extra video channels.
