TANDBERG Wins 4M European TV over DSL ContractTo supply MPEG-4 AVC TV over DSL system (March 16, 2005)
TANDBERG Television today announced that it has received an order, valued in excess of 4M, for a TV over DSL system for a leading European Telco. The commercial TV over DSL service is expected to go live during the summer of 2005.
The contract is for an MPEG-4 part 10 (H.264/AVC) video head-end and TANDBERG Television will deploy its EN5930 encoding system to support ingest and delivery of MPEG-4 AVC video, as well as enable MPEG-2 encoding. The EN5930 is TANDBERG Televisions standard definition MPEG-4 AVC encoding system which provides low bit-rate encoding of up to 50% less than MPEG-2. This highly efficient compression system enables broadcast quality video services to be delivered over bandwidth constrained DSL networks and allows telephone companies to offer TV services as part of competitive triple play packages.
