ATLANTA -- EGT, Inc., delivering the world's best digital video experience, today announced ALTO, the company's flagship H.264 / MPEG-4 video processing platform. EGT will demonstrate ALTO's technology and capabilities at the upcoming IBC Exhibition in Amsterdam, September 8 - 13, 2005 at booth number #4.260.

Designed to capitalize on EGT's latest algorithm innovations, ALTO allows operators to provide superior quality digital video at the lowest bit rates, thus improving bandwidth utilization by 50% and accelerating Internet Protocol TV (IPTV) and other advanced applications. The efficient design and upgradeability to HDTV encoding makes ALTO an ideal solution for operators looking to expand High Definition (HD) services to its customers.

"Our customers want platforms they can upgrade according to their timeframe," said Greg Nicholson, CEO for EGT. "By designing ALTO for field upgradeability, we provide products with longer lifespan than our competition. ALTO's unparalleled H.264 encoding performance extends EGT's programmable approach to the Advanced Video Codec (AVC) and MPEG-4 platform, providing more efficiency, quality and value to our customers."

Features For Advanced HD Encoding

Built on a fully programmable platform, ALTO is the first to offer two channels of H.264 encoding in a one-rack unit chassis. ALTO is a feature rich platform, complete with Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, integrated ProMPEG FEC (Forward Error Correction) and the industry's only simultaneous ASI and IP output.
