SENSIO and Grass Valley to Collaborate Towards Integrated Professional 3D Encoding Solution

SENSIO Technologies announced that it is collaborating with Grass Valley at the 2010 NAB Show to demonstrate the future integration of the SENSIO 3D Encoder IP Core with the Grass Valley ViBE EM3000 H.264 HD Encoder. The demo at the Grass Valley booth will show how H.264 compression algorithms will be optimized by Grass Valley and SENSIO for delivery of superior-quality 3D images, even at the smallest bit rates required for broadcast or VOD services. The two companies will introduce their forthcoming solution at this year's NAB and will work closely together thereafter to optimize their collaborative solution.

SENSIO 3D technology is a professional-grade, frame-compatible stereoscopic compression technology. The SENSIO 3D Encoder IP Core leverages this technology to combine two streams, from any video source, into a single stream that can be transmitted throughout the existing broadcasting infrastructure for visually lossless encoding that yields outstanding results.

The ViBE EM3000 H.264 HD Encoder uses the compression efficiency and advanced pre-processing of Grass Valley's Mustang video-compression architecture to deliver clearer pictures with increased depth and clarity. The Grass Valley encoder's ability to use the entire MPEG-4 AVC toolset will enable optimization of the system's encoding algorithms to ensure exceptional quality in the SENSIO 3D format.
