Fujitsu has announced the newest version of the company’s leading MPEG-04 AVC encoder for real-time broadcast quality contribution content. The Fujitsu IP-9500 4.0 is the industry’s first encoding solution to enable the simultaneous transmission of high-definition (HD) signals using 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 chroma subsampling, allowing broadcasters to efficiently and cost-effectively utilize either format based on their existing infrastructures.
The IP-9500 4.0 also integrates a cutting-edge process for maintaining non-degraded 4:2:0 chroma resolution to preserve picture quality throughout the entire communications link. Fujitsu will demonstrate these and other new features of the IP-9500 4.0 during the 2009 NAB Show (booth SU10921), April 20-23, 2009 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas.
“The Fujitsu technology innovation and ability to bring cutting-edge solutions to market is one of our key competitive advantages, and it is one reason why broadcasting organizations across the world continue to implement the IP-9500,” said Vic Herring, senior director, video solutions group, Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc. “The IP-9500’s ability to transmit 4:2:2 and 4:2:0 signals simultaneously yields measureable benefits to our customers by reducing cost and bolstering efficiency while maintaining superior picture quality and low latencies.”
