Nevion to introduce new compression schemes at NAB
Enhanced industry-low latency JPEG 2000 and new H.264 compression support all signal formats
Oxnard, California, March 15, 2012 – Nevion, the leading provider of managed video services for broadcasters, service providers and government entities worldwide, is coming to NAB 2102 (booth SU2019) with new, as well as enhanced, JPEG 2000 and H.264 compression schemes in its Ventura line of award-winning video transport solutions.
“As video formats become more complex and outputs more varied, high quality compression becomes even more critical,” said Nevion’s Eugene Keane, CTO. “As an early codec innovator, Nevion continues to better industry standards for latency and visual quality with JPEG 2000 and H.264 solutions suitable for nearly every budget and environment.”
Broadcasters and service providers can now access artifact-free, near mathematically lossless compression—as low as 2:1 compression ratio for HD and SD video, a first for the industry—of HD-SDI/SD-SDI and 3G over Gigabit Ethernet with no blocking, tiling or motion dependence. The VS901 series supports all SD and HD formats at 270Mbps, 1485Mbps, and 1483.52Mbps and now 1080x2K with automatic signal detection and configurable packet buffer to accommodate network specific packet delay variations. The VS901 meets the exacting demands of live-event or delay-sensitive applications such as digital cinema, guaranteeing quality with minimal degradation through multiple encode/decode cycles.
For high quality, value-driven SD or HD-SDI video transport over bandwidth-limited infrastructures, Nevion’s new VS904/VS954 provides state-of-the-art H.264 compression with professional, high quality and configurable rates from 2-80Mbps. Nevion’s family of H.264 solutions extend from 4:2:0/8bit applications to the highest possible quality 4:2:2/10bit applications.
With new perfect protection switching and remote management over IP/Ethernet infrastructures, versatile VS904/VS954 modular encoders and decoders provide contribution-quality H.264 compression for IP networks as well as legacy infrastructures. Customers have a choice of IP or DVB-ASI network interfaces.
Moving beyond video transport to fully managed and controlled video networking, Nevion manufactures award-winning systems for broadcasters, service providers and government agencies worldwide. Highly modular solutions encompass IP and optical transport, state-of-the-art compression and routing for any video format over any network infrastructure—within buildings or across continents. With the industry’s greenest and most scalable products, Nevion preserves quality while delivering video from content acquisition through distribution. By creating new service-offering opportunities or minimizing costs, Nevion enables its customers to move, manage and monetize video content. World headquarters in Sandefjord, Norway, with U.S. headquarters in Oxnard, California; Nevion also maintains offices in Oslo, Chicago, London, Dubai, Beijing and Singapore. www.nevion.com.
