LAS VEGAS -- Motorola (NYSE: MOT - News) today announced the release of two MPEG-4 encoder solutions that will dramatically enhance the operational efficiency of distributing high definition (HD) and standard definition (SD) video for service and content providers.

The new multi channel NE (network encoder) MPEG-4 AVC SD encoder family joins the successful 1RU SE (single channel encoder) series MPEG-4 Advanced Video Coding (AVC) HD and SD encoders to offer a complete encoder product line that satisfies the content distribution needs of a broad range of service providers.

In addition, encoders in the 1 RU SE family will receive a firmware update making these AVC Multi-Format Video Encoders more efficient to deliver services at lower bit rates, enabling service providers to deliver more simultaneous HD streams per household. As a result, consumers will be able to watch and record multiple HD programs -- or watch different HD programs on different HDTV sets. Bandwidth improvements of up to 25% for high action sports are possible with SE encoders, meaning that operators can increase the number of simultaneous services delivered to the home while maintaining customers' video quality expectations.

"Motorola serves as a leader and innovator of technology that aids in the delivery of high value video content to the IPTV, cable, broadcast and satellite marketplace," said Doug Means, vice president and general manager, IP Video Services, Home & Networks Mobility, Motorola. "With the explosive demand for more high definition programming, video quality and bandwidth efficiency have become critically important to successful and competitive service launches. These new encoder releases deliver on both requirements for MPEG-4 HD and SD video content, and ultimately will allow more rich video content to be delivered efficiently to the home."
