NTT Electronics, a leading supplier of codec solution, today announced that our most robust and reliable 4K/UHD/3D contribution codec solution will be on display at Megahertz Ltd. (MHz), a leading supplier of OB vehicles and broadcast studio solutions, at IBC (International Broadcast Convention) this year in cooperation with British Telecom Media and Broadcast.

 NEL’s 4K/UHD/3D contribution solution was involved in many live events in Japan over last three years and earned prized comments from our customers as the most practical and reliable approach for transmitting 4K/UHD live contribution feeds over satellite or fibre network using our state-of-the-art Full HD H.264/AVC multi-channel encoder XVE9310 and newly released AVC/MPEG-2 decoder HVD9130.

 Our very unique design of handling quad HD signals together with our inherent high quality low delay LSI-based codec made the most challenging part of 4K transmission easy for an OB vehicle operator to enable frame accurate synchronization as well as signal takers to put them back into one piece as a clean 4K image.

 “We are very excited to be working with Megaherz and British Telecom to be able to show our industry leading solution for 4K/UHD contribution.” said Hisashi Kasahara, General Manager of the Digital Video & Systems Business Group of NTT Electronics. “Both Megaherz and British Telecom have a great reputation in the industry and are known for keen interest in bringing the latest technologies onto their platform. We believe our combined OB solution will take the 4K/UHD transmission to the next level forward.”

 “We know NTT Electronics for longtime for their superior performance and reliability and I’m delighted to be able to show their latest 4K/UHD codec solution in our latest hybrid Outside Broadcast vehicle designed for BT and be ready to deploy in the field for ultra-high quality live feeds.” said Stephan Burgess, Technical Director of Megahertz.

 Please do not take our word for it and see for yourself at the Megahertz stand at Hall 11.F20 as well as NEL’s own booth at Hall 2.C50.
