TANDBERG Supplies First MPEG 4 AVC HDTV SystemNorth American satellite broadcaster to deploy EN5990 encoder and Reflex software (January 28, 2005)
TANDBERG Television, a leading provider of professional video compression and TV delivery systems, today announced that it has received an order, valued in excess of $9M, from a leading North American satellite broadcaster.
The contract is the world's first order to be announced for an MPEG-4 AVC HDTV video headend and will see TANDBERG Television deploy its EN5990 encoder within fully redundant systems complete with its Reflex statistical multiplexing software.
First to market with MPEG-4 AVC HD compression systems, TANDBERG Television has developed the EN5990 to enable broadcasters and operators to respond to the dramatically increased consumer demand for more HDTV programming. By using the power, flexibility and bandwidth efficiency of MPEG-4 AVC the bandwidth required for the real-time delivery of outstanding High Definition images can be halved compared to traditional MPEG-2 solutions. The majority of these systems will be delivered in the first half of 2005.
