Fujitsu Frontech North America... Lose That Latency (SatBroadcasting™—Firmware)

[SatNews] Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc. will be exhibiting at VidTrans13, the Video Service Forum's annual...

...technical conference and exposition, February 26-28 in Los Angeles. At the show, Fujitsu will showcase a new firmware release that dramatically improves end-to-end latency for its IP-9610, IP-900, and IP-920 HD/SD H.264 video encoders/decoders while delivering an exceptional picture quality at reduced bit rates. The new enhancement enables Fujitsu's H.264 video encoders/decoders to operate at less than 99 milliseconds, ensuring a seamless interaction between talent, studio, and interviewees for HD satellite newsgathering, broadcasting, and IP streaming applications.

Leveraging high-performance H.264 video compression algorithms, and considered by many as the highest quality in the industry, Fujitsu encoders/decoders enable bandwidth-efficient, real-time transmission of digital media content over IP, DVB-ASI, and RF networks. The new ultra-low latency enhancement is available today and can easily be added to existing IP-9610, IP-900, and IP-920 H.264 video encoders/decoders, allowing users to realize the return on investment of previously purchased equipment while simultaneously adapting to new technology advancements.

Technology demonstrations of the new firmware release will take place at VidTrans13, booth 16.
