Optibase introduced real-time professional MPEG-2 HD encoding for the PC, at NAB2005.
Optibase's MovieMaker 200 HD is designed for professional-quality ingest of HD for broadcasting, VOD, ad insertion, program initiation and post-production studios, as well as for integrators working on high-resolution military simulation or surveillance projects.
Optibase is developing the MovieMaker 200 HD hardware encoder in response to the rising demand for high-quality HD compression solutions from its existing clients.
The MovieMaker 200 HD board supports HD and SD video input with MPEG-2 compression support at up to 80Mb/s. The board is designed to digitize from an array of inputs (file, analog or digital) and to drop files to a host as either compressed or uncompressed data. The product comes with Optibase's encoding management application, MPEG Composer 200 version 4.0.
