Harris showcases HD MPEG-4 part 10 compression products

the 2007 National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) convention, Harris
Corporation, an international communications and technology
company, is showcasing a suite of high-definition television MPEG-4
part 10 (H.264) compression products to address the contribution,
distribution, and transmission needs of the global television industry.
The new suite of Harris products greatly reduces the required
communications bandwidth — lowering costs and enabling new applications
such as Internet Protocol Television (IPTV).

The new MPEG-4
part 10 (H.264) compression products leverage the latest advances in
compression algorithm technology, and complement current Harris MPEG-2
products that are widely used in broadcast communications — including
the NetVX video networking platform and the DTP digital turnaround

MPEG-4 part 10
(H.264) video compression provides significant bandwidth savings over
existing compression technologies, enabling applications like Internet
Protocol Television (IPTV) over carrier Digital Subscriber Line
facilities. The H.264 standard is being used increasingly in
international broadcast and transmission systems due to its efficient
bandwidth utilization. These new additions to the Harris video
compression product lines will allow telecom carriers and broadcasters
to leverage the benefits of H.264 technology in integration with
existing broadcast infrastructure.

The NetVX video
networking platform provides an integrated signal workflow including
video encoding, multiplexing and networking capabilities, targeting the
needs of television broadcasters and telecom carriers alike. Adding
H.264 (MPEG-4) compression capability to this already-powerful product
line allows for new applications by enabling reduced communications
bandwidth requirements and lower associated costs. The DTP product
family provides compressed stream processing capabilities including
splicing, digital program insertion, graphics and branding. H.264
support in DTP allows these same functions to be performed in H.264 in
future systems.
