Scopus Encoders Help BBC Get Into (Olympics) Game; Connect Beijing to London

The BBC is using Scopus’ MPEG-4 encoders for use at
the Beijing Summer Olympic Games. Scopus UE-9420 dense encoders are being used for
transmission of high-quality video feeds from the Olympics to the BBC’s
London offices for the logging of scores and statistics used for
monitoring purposes.
Scopus was chosen following a thorough
selection process for the best match to BBC’s specific requirements for
high-quality video at low bit rates. The UE-9420 is able to distinguish
granular picture details, and offers two H.264 channels in a 1RU
chassis. The UE-9420’s unique IP output design enables BBC to transmit
its feeds over an IP infrastructure across continents without
compromising picture excellence.
“The BBC’s choice of our encoder
platform demonstrates the excellent performance that our solutions
provide,” said David Shamir, encoder product marketing manager at
Scopus. “We take pride in our ability to meet client requirements for a
demanding event such as the Olympic Games with reliable, high-quality
video encoding solutions.”
