Motorola this week began taking the wraps off its new DSR-6000 series, a next-gen receiver/transcoder designed to enable networks to use both MPEG-4 AVC and MPEG-2 compression technologies more efficiently.

The company said the DSR-6000 results in the reduction of bandwidth requirements up to 75 percent without diminishing content quality. (Thus, additional HD and/or SD content can be delivered via the same bandwidth.) Using the new series, Motorola said programmers can distribute content solely in MPEG-4 HD, while enabling service providers to deliver in either MPEG-4 or MPEG-2 in HD or SD formats.

The San Diego-based firm sees its new receiver/transponder series as accelerating the adoption of more HD content.
