Cobham introducing HD MPEG4 IP encoder
RF specialist Cobham will introduce a lightweight, easy-to-connect HD MPEG4 IP Encoder specifically engineered for broadcast applications at Broadcast Asia 2013. Able to operate in standard, low and ultra-low latency modes, the energy-efficient encoder also has balanced audio inputs and includes integral broadcast-standard IFB talkback.
Cobham will also demonstrate MediaMesh, an IP-based, rapid set-up field newsroom that takes advantage of new technology to enable field reporters to get on air almost instantly. The ultra-lightweight MediaMesh unit includes: a broadcast quality transmission path for live two-ways; remote camera control; high quality file transfer; plus a high-capacity internet connection that provides access to base newsroom computers and cell phones. All of this can be transported in a single, easily carried case and be operational within minutes.
Also featuring at the show will be one of the world’s smallest wireless HD camera transmitters. Cobham’s new “Solo Micro HD” transmitter, a matchbox-size addition to Cobham’s “Solo” range, employs MPEG encoding for excellent image quality retention, with integral COFDM modulation.
