NAB 2013: Visionary Solutions to preview new H.264, MPEG-2 decoder
Visionary Solutions, Inc (VSI) will offer an exclusive demonstration of the D1000, a new H.264 and MPEG-2 based decoder supporting SDI (3G/HD/SD), HDMI and DVI outputs with resolutions up to 1080p60, at NAB 2013. The D1000 enables users to cost-effectively deliver professional quality HD video and audio over IP networks.
“The D1000 professional decoder is the perfect complement to our widely deployed encoding series, offering the same level of reliability, flexibility, high performance, and superior video and audio quality,” says Jordan Christoff, president of VSI. “Through the D1000, we’re now able to offer our customers an affordable, end-to-end solution for streaming 1080p60 video and audio content, bridging the gap between expensive IRDs and consumer STBs.”
After receiving H.264 or MPEG-2 audio and video content from a VSI encoder, the D1000 decodes and outputs the content into a high-quality 1080p, 1080i, or 720p HD stream, in real time, at the lowest possible bit rate. The high-performance decoder also supports a wide range of audio standards, including AAC, MPEG-1/2, and optionally AC3, to ensure exceptional audio quality.
The D1000 works seamlessly with all VSI encoders and features a high-density, compact design that enables it to be housed in the same MP1700 or MPP200 chassis system as other VSI blade encoders, reducing operational costs and rackspace requirements. An HTTP API allows easy integration with third-party middleware systems.
