TANDBERG Television has unveiled its new EN8100 MPEG-2 SD encoder at NAB 2009.
The TANDBERG EN8100 is a next generation MPEG-2 encoder, based on in-house developed technologies and encoding algorithms. TANDBERG said that is delivers encoding performance in a high density, low power (6 channels in 1 RU) chassis and cuts MPEG-2 SD bandwidth requirements by at least 15%.
According to Tandberg, the device enables operators to achieve higher picture quality in the same bitrate, allowing SD MPEG-2 to look acceptable on large flat panel TVs.
Roger Bolton, EVP of compression systems at TANDBERG Television said: "This is the biggest improvement to MPEG-2 in five years. We have seized the opportunity to develop the best MPEG-2 encoder in the world today and to help our customers' lower costs, reduce their carbon footprints and continue to introduce new services that drive increased revenues. That's a very compelling combination in these tough times and it's not a great surprise that we've received a very enthusiastic response from our customers, securing a number of significant pre-launch orders,"
