FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif. -- Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc., a leader in innovative technology and front-end solutions for broadcasting, telecommunications, and pro A/V markets, today announced 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. Ideal for HD satellite newsgathering, broadcasting, and IP streaming applications, Fujitsu's H.264 video encoders/decoders are now capable of operating at less than 99 milliseconds, ensuring a seamless interaction between talent, studio, and interviewees. "Link delays can be extremely disruptive to the natural flow of a live interview and ultimately lower a broadcaster's revenue by requiring additional camera takes and additional talent training," said Richard Harvey, product manager, Fujitsu Network Media Solutions. "Prior to this enhancement, Fujitsu encoders/decoders were able to achieve about 300 milliseconds of back-to-back latency. With a typical satellite propagation delay of 270 milliseconds a one-way transit would take roughly 570 milliseconds, the very edge of acceptable latency. This newest technology improvement further minimizes end-to-end delays, enabling broadcasters and other content providers to cost-effectively deliver professional, superior quality video content to viewers." Fujitsu Ltd.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
