DVEO Launches Low Latency H.264 High Definition Encoder/Decoder For IPTV & Videoconferencing

DVEO, will introduce their new low latency MPEG-4 HD or SD encoder/decoder system at the Hollywood Post Alliance Technical Retreat for post production professionals.

InstaView HD is a real time, 4:2:2, high resolution HD or SD encoder/decoder system. H.264, also called MPEG-4 Part 10, or MPEG-4 AVC, is a video compression standard. It has the same video quality as MPEG-2, and uses less than 60% of the bandwidth.

The new system delivers HD (up to 1080p) or SD video and super wideband audio across IP networks at bandwidths from 256 kbps to 10 Mbps. It achieves end-to-end latency of less than 70 milliseconds. This is significant because most broadcast encoders have latencies above 500 milliseconds. The system includes a built-in decoder for two-way video communication, making it particularly valuable for applications such as viewing and discussing movie “dailies” in a video conference. This new technology is considerably less expensive than sending and receiving video over satellite.

The encoder/decoder supports full motion video at 720p/60, 720p/50, and 1080i, plus 1080p at 30 frames per second. It has two input ports -- one for HD-SDI/SD-SDI with embedded digital audio, and one for analog video (RGBHV/YPbPr) and audio. The decoder has two output ports -- HD-SDI/SD-SDI with embedded digital audio, and analog video -- RGBHV/YpbPr, or DVI. Both types of inputs and outputs can be compressed at the same time, at adjusted frame rates.

Audio and video are synchronized to within 20 milliseconds or less. The system also features web-based management, closed captioning support, video noise filtering and reduction, and text or logo insertion.

InstaView HD is available now. An optional version is available with up to five two-way HD channels, so it can send multiple unicast or multicast streams from a single system.

Suggested Retail Price InstaView HD: $25,000 U.S.
