TANDBERG Television has launched a number of new products, including its Intelligent Compression Engine (ICE).
The ICE card is included in TANDBERG's new EN5930 MPEG-4 part 10 advanced video encoder.
ICE is a powerful and sophisticated video and audio compression platform that provides a flexible and upgradeable solution for high-quality implementations of Windows Media 9 series and MPEG-4 part 10 (H.264/AVC) technologies. The ICE card is included in TANDBERG 's new EN5930 MPEG-4 part 10 advanced video encoder, and the EN5920, a dedicated hardware platform for Windows Media 9. It can also be inserted into the E5710 MPEG-2 encoder to enable customers to move to Windows Media 9 video and audio, or MPEG-4 part 10 by upgrading existing equipment.
An HD version of ICE is also being developed to enable conversion of MPEG-2 HD encoders to support the new advanced encoding techniques. Moreover, should the requirement arise, users can also switch between MPEG-4 part 10 and Windows Media 9 series with a simple software change.
