NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. and ATLANTA -- Conexant Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CNXT), a worldwide leader in semiconductor solutions for broadband communications, enterprise networks and the digital home, and TANDBERG Television (OSE:TAT), a leading provider of video compression systems, today announced that they have successfully completed MPEG-4 advanced video coding (AVC)/H.264 interoperability tests. The joint tests verified interoperability between Conexant's CX2418X family of decoder integrated circuits and the TANDBERG EN5990 MPEG-4 AVC high-definition (HD) real-time broadcast encoder. AVC technology allows digital broadcast TV service providers to improve bandwidth utilization, enabling the cost-effective delivery of a wider range of video, voice, and data broadcast programming.

"Our tests with TANDBERG Television provide broadcasters with an additional level of assurance that our respective products conform to industry standards and work together seamlessly," said Jeff Crosby, vice president of Broadband Media Processing for Conexant. "TANDBERG Television's expertise in encoding technology is recognized by broadcasters and network operators worldwide. We share their dedication to delivering standards-compliant solutions to the broadcasting community, and are pleased to have worked with them on this important endeavor."

"In order to truly deliver on its promises, MPEG-4 AVC needs to go beyond the codec and encoding box and be readily available in end-to-end systems that enable broadcasters and operators to rollout next-generation networks," said Matthew Goldman, vice president of Technology, Compression Systems, TANDBERG Television Inc. "By working with leading silicon vendors such as Conexant we are able to rapidly bring complete open systems to market and drive the paradigm shift from standard to high-definition, the first major picture quality improvement since color TV."
