MPEG-4 AVC encoder enables HD satellite news gathering

Sunnyvale, Calif.—Fujitsu Computer Products of America Inc. is describing its IP-9500 MPEG-4 AVC HD encoder as a key product for broadcasting companies that want to transmit remote HD content through existing satellite configurations, while at the same time cut costs by using a single satellite channel.

According to Fujitsu, the IP-9500 delivers HD quality at a very low latency, encoding and decoding video content at less than 300 milliseconds. Fujitsu's IP-9500 MPEG4 AVC HD Codec encoder provides high picture quality down to 4-Mbits/s, allowing for high quality HD content to be transmitted in a single DVB-S/S2 satellite channel. In return, companies could save up to 50 percent in operating costs versus having to use two channels for MPEG-2 encoded data, Fujitsu said.
