has announced the integration of the H.264 Advanced Video Coding capability in its new DVStation-IP, to decode MPEG-4 Part 10 video elementary streams. These are presented as thumbnails within Service View, one of the key features of the DVStation-IP.
The DVStation-IP Service View consolidates all information and performance parameters of IPTV Services into an easy-to-navigate central screen. This enables operators to quickly identify problems, thus minimizing service disruption.
As bandwidth becomes an increasingly important resource in IPTV, operators are gradually adopting the H.264 video standard. This technology delivers brilliant quality images at lower data rates than before, and superior results for an extensive range of applications.
Danny Wilson, President and CEO of Pixelmetrix Corporation highlighted, "In this day and age of IPTV, HDTV and 3G mobile devices, H.264 is poised to be the quintessential standard in video compression technology. We have integrated the advanced H.264 in our DVStation-IP to value-add the bundles of IPTV solutions we have for the broadcasters, cable, wireless, satellite operators and content providers worldwide to step up their IPTV services and such, by elevating the quality video experience."
The H.264 video thumbnails illustrated in the DVStation-IP Service View is set to offer feedback on the presence of video content in the IP network. More robust attributes to watch out for in the DVStation-IP include SD and HD resolutions, Main, Baseline and High profile support, freeze frame and blackout detections.
