Las Vegas—Horizon Semiconductors announced the immediate availability of a multi-standard native 1080/60p professional encoder IC for the cable, satellite, telco, terrestrial and mobile triple/quad-play broadcast markets.

The Hz2010 incorporates a multi-standard high definition video encoder natively supporting resolutions of 1080/60p and below, and implements leading compression standards including AVC (up to HP@L4.2), VC-1 (AP@L3 and MP@HL), MPEG-2 (MP@HL) & MPEG-4/H.263.

The Hz2010 features an advanced video pre-processor, featuring motion compensated spatio-temporal noise reduction filtering, motion-adaptive de-interlacer, frame rate conversion and advanced scaling. In addition, a high performance audio encoder engine enables encoding to various audio formats such as MPEG-1, AC-3, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS, AAC and WMA.

The Hz2010 also integrates a programmable high-bandwidth transport processor, as well as a multi-standard conditional access/digital rights management security processor.

Horizon's Hz2010 is provided with a comprehensive software stack and a reference hardware platform designed to accelerate OEM/ODM development cycles.
