Motorola unleashes megapixel transcoder
Motorola Mobility is introducing what it claims is the first 3 gigapixel adaptive bit rate (ABR) transcoder. The Motorola GT-3’s ability to process 3 billion pixels of video content per second is equivalent to nearly 50 full-resolution HD programs, the company said.
The company said the new GT-3 enables a broader selection of video data rates and resolutions. Furthermore, with the increase in transcoding efficiency it represents, the GT-3 can provide higher-quality video using the same amount of bandwidth, or the same video quality at much lower bit rates.
Joe Cozzolino, Motorola Mobility’s senior vice president and general manager of network infrastructure, said, “It can deliver all the content to all the devices that today’s consumers expect, with the transcoding performance to scale to tomorrow’s connected ecosystem.”
Other features include a dual power supply and I/O and system-level redundancy for 24 x 7 availability.
The system is integrated with other Motorola technologies, including nDVR, on-demand, Medios (DRM, cross-platform user interfaces) and multi-screen devices like smartphones, tablets, laptops and TVs.
Motorola is demonstrating the system at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo this week in Orlando.
