Video backhaul and news gathering system vendors are faced with the challenge by operators and content originators to deliver high video quality at low bit rates and with low latency, at a time when the contribution market is transitioning to more efficient formats while enabling improved VQ. A contribution solution today must support the formats MPEG-2 4:2:2 8-bit and H.264 10-bit 4:2:2 to provide a complete solution for upgrades, new deployments and migration to all IP.
GigPeak, the market leader in professional video processing solutions, is the first to market with a single chip to address all contribution needs, from legacy MPEG-2 4:2:0/4:2:2 8-bit to H.264 4:2:0/4:2:2 10-bit to AVC-I 50 and AVC-I 100 encoding and decoding applications. With over a decade of video quality leadership and technology innovation, GigPeak’s D7Pro ASIC is the most advanced encoding and decoding solution for video contribution and news gathering. The D7Pro offers a complete video-audio-ancillary data-mux integrated solution enabling high video quality, as well as low latency at low bit rates for video encoding and decoding.
