Fujitsu to demonstrate MPEG-4 AVC encoder, cost-effective networking solutions in Las Vegas
As you know, MPEG-4 AVC is the latest video compression standard that offers better picture quality with lower bandwidth requirements than the previous MPEG-2 standard and so far it has already been adopted in Blu-ray discs and IPTV (Internet-Protocol Televison) deployments while gradually replacing MPEG-2 in other applications as well.
And the new IP-9400 MPEG-4 AVC encoder is one of the media solutions Fujitsu Frontech North America will exhibit at NAB Convention in Las Vegas (April 12-15, 2010). According to the company, it promises cutting the operational costs of broadcasters by allowing them to covert from MPEG-2 to AVC encoding in their HD and SD microwave, satellite and IP digital news gathering and live event capture systems.
Other solutions include low latency XG2600 10GB Ethernet solution as well as the 24-port XG0224 and 48-port XG448 Layer 2 Ethernet switching solutions for transition to 10GB Ethernet networking infrastructure.
Foothill Ranch, CA,— WHAT:Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc., a leading supplier of innovative digital media solutions and computer products including peripherals and biometric security solutions, will demonstrate its portfolio of high-fidelity, low-latency media solutions during the NAB Convention in Las Vegas from April 12-15, 2010. The exhibit includes the latest IP-9400 MPEG-4 AVC encoder, designed specifically to meet the demands of mobile live event contribution. The IP-9400 significantly reduces operational costs as broadcasters convert from MPEG-2 to AVC encoding in their high-definition (HD) and standard-definition (SD) microwave, satellite and IP digital news gathering and live event capture systems. Fujitsu will conduct a drawing for an IP-9400 H.264 AVC encoder on Wednesday, April 14, 2010 from its NAB booth (SU5607). Entries for the drawing can be made online before the show at http://us.fujitsu.com/video or at the Fujitsu booth during the show. Fujitsu will also showcase its recently announced XG2600 10Gb Ethernet solution as well as the 24-port XG0224 and 48-port XG0448 Layer 2 Ethernet switching solutions, which help customers establish cost-effective upgrade paths as they transition to 10Gb networking environments.
WHEN: April12-15, 2010
WHERE: Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas (booth SU5607)
WHY: In today’s economic climate, broadcasters continue to look for ways to cut costs withouth sacraficing performance or operational cababilities. The Fujitsu line of MPEG-4 encoders sets the industry standard for superior picture quality and low latencies, and the newly introduced IP-9400 offers these same benefits at a lower price point, ensuring that customers receive the best overall value to meet demanding budget constraints while offering industry-leading performance capabilities at any given price point. Similarly, many organizations continue to migrate to a 10Gb Ethernet networking infrastructure and are looking for solutions to cost-effectively make this transition. The Fujitsu XG0224 and XG0448 offer excellent throughput, flexible interfaces and extremely low failure rates in a cost-effective form factor. The Fujitsu XG2600 high-performance 10Gb Ethernet switch, which reduces overall networking costs while ensuring industry-leading low latency and minimal power consumption, will also be on display during NAB.
WHO: Jack Herbert and other Fujitsu staff will be available to discuss the IP-9400 and other Fujitsu MPEG-4 AVC solutions, as well as the newly announced media solutions global channel partner program at booth SU5607. Jack can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org, or (760) 845-1524. Eric Kong will demonstrate the XG series of Ethernet switches and can be reached at email@example.com or (949) 232-8886.
