LAKE OSWEGO, Ore. -- Tut Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:TUTS) announced today that it is introducing advanced features and new platforms for its video processing and networking solutions. As part of its enhanced video processing solution, Tut is introducing the following new Astria content processor platforms, redundancy and management options, revenue-generating applications, and encoding enhancements:

  • Three new Astria platforms that complete a product line that now extends from a 2-slot, 1 RU chassis to a 16-slot 12 RU chassis,

    • Aveon 2.7, an advanced element management system for all Astria products,

    • Guardian 2.0, an automatic protection switching package that provides 1-for-N card-level protection across multiple chassis,

    • QualView(R) Ad Insertion application that splices ads entirely in the digital domain,

    • MPEG-2 ASE, action scene encoder for use with certain sports and other high-action TV channels,

    • A higher performance transition card that accommodates digital audio inputs and provides pre-processing to increase video encoding performance in the presence of noise,

    • MSP, a multi-stream processor card for advanced encoding algorithms such as H.264/MPEG-4 AVC and Windows Media 9 Advanced Profile (also known as VC-9).

    "Today's launch of the extended Astria product line addresses the next-generation needs of our digital TV, broadcast and government customers," stated Craig Bender, Vice President of Marketing and Corporate Development for Tut Systems. "Our new Astria chassis allows digital TV service providers to scale their program needs from the mobile edge, for example recording a local church service or high school football game, to processing 100 or more national TV programs at their metro core. Our new management options will allow these programs to be automatically protected on a 1 for N basis across all of our chassis. We have also added new ad insertion products to our lineup that enable service providers to generate local ad revenue and community spot insertions totally in the digital domain. For broadcasting and government surveillance applications, the new smaller-sized chassis will also allow our customers to place encoders at remote and/or mobile sights in a right-sized, cost-effective manner. And for all of our customers, the new multi-DSP board facilitates the migration to new high-performance encoding options such as MPEG-4 AVC and Windows Media 9 Advanced Profile."
