Sports tech scores for NTT15 September 2017
An HEVC multi-channel encoder for 4K and high dynamic range (HDR) sports coverage is being showcased by NTT Electronics.
Using an in-house developed application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC), the HC11000 series offers 4:2:2 10-bit real-time encoding. According to NTT, it can transmit broadcast-quality video images in low bitrate, low latency with low power consumption.
The HC11000 will work with resolutions from SD and HD up to 4K 60p and is said to be ideal for sport events coverage.
At IBC2017, NTT is showing the device working with both multi-channel and 4K decoded images.
Also on the NTT stand is a demonstration of the company’s Smart Contribution Solution for transmitting multiple video streams from sporting venues to a broadcast centre or studio.
Designed for remote live production via IP, it is based around two H.264/AVC devices, the MVE5000 encoder and the MVD5000 decoder.
NTT Electronics is exhibiting jointly with NTT, NTT DATA Italia and NTT TechnoCross at IBC2017.
