PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 26, 2005--ATEME introduces an integrated MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 Offline Encoder PC Suite, leveraging its well received MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 encoder core.
The PC Encoder Suite enables fast HD encoding, in Baseline, Main and High Profiles, with easy integration in production workflow.
AVC Encoder PC Suite supports interlaced or progressive video (with MBAFF, PAFF) in a variety of formats and resolutions from QCIF up to 4kx2k (level 5.1), including 720p and 1080i formats, reading any file format with available DirectShow filter. As a strictly standards compliant (ISO/IEC 14496-10), it is fully configurable and supports all profiles: Main, Baseline and High, with variable GOP configuration, pixel motion estimation (1, 1/2 or 1/4), bitrate control mode (CBR, VBR, Dual pass) and professional pre-processing (de-interlacing, exclusive noise filtering, 3:2 pulldown).
The MPEG-4 AVC Encoder PC Suite is suitable with the existing MP4 or MPEG-2 TS files in VOD servers, content delivery to TV and mobile systems. This Windows Suite is easy to use locally or remotely, through a batch manager and dropping directories associated to custom presets, allowing one-click encoding. Set-top box manufacturers and decoders integrators will use it for interoperability testing, by taking advantage of test files generation with fine tuning of all parameters.
The simultaneous transmission while encoding capability saves time for use cases such as news gathering. Not only the encoding time is totally masked, but AVC encoding by ATEME enables to keep a better quality picture with a lower bitrate, thus preserving bandwidth, according to the company.
