HDNet has purchased Leitch's new all-MPEG-2 stream manipulation product, the Digital Turnaround Processor (DTP).
By deploying the DTP at its network operations center, HDNet can brand the signals and overlay informative messages without requiring decoding and re-encoding. HDNet performs the real-time encoding process at its state-of-the-art mobile units and on the output of its editing rooms. This maximizes the video quality of 1080i high definition from origination all the way to the cable headends and the consumer.
The DTP will be on exhibit at NAB2004.
