ATLANTA -- At Telco TV 2007 (booth #711, Georgia World Congress Center, October 23-25) TANDBERG Television, part of the Ericsson Group, will show its award-winning iPlex™ UltraCompression IPTV video processing platform and debut its high performance integrated transcoding capabilities for the first time in North America. The new iPlex UltraCompression transcoder furthers TANDBERG Television’s market leadership in the IPTV space. It supports multi-format MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC SD and HD input streams and uses TANDBERG Television’s best-in-class next generation AVC platform to transcode them to either MPEG-4 AVC SD or HD output.

Up to 4 UltraCompression transcoders are supported in the 1RU iPlex video processing platform, giving the iPlex market leading density. By supporting transcoding, the iPlex video processing platform ensures the integrity of metadata in the transport streams (closed captioning, teletext etc.) and maximizes the performance of lip sync issues with subtitles. Additionally, when used in conjunction with bulk descrambling receivers, the iPlex transcoding architecture reduces the cost of the overall head-end design and improves video quality.

“Building on the success of the iPlex UltraCompression platform, our transcoding capability sets a new industry performance benchmark. It offers an elegant and cost-effective way for service providers to take advantage of the bit-rate savings associated with MPEG-4 AVC while using either MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 AVC compressed programming from content providers,” said Ian Tapp, senior vice president, business development, TANDBERG Television, Inc. “The integrated approach in the iPlex not only simplifies system architectures, but also enables the increase in IPTV picture quality that we know our North American customers want.”
