Conexant and TANDBERG Offer MPEG-4 Interoperability

Conexant Systems and TANDBERG Television successfully completed MPEG-4 advanced video coding (AVC)/H.264 interoperability tests. The joint tests verified interoperability between Conexant's CX2418X family of decoder integrated circuits and the TANDBERG EN5990 MPEG-4 AVC high-definition (HD) real-time broadcast encoder.

"In order to truly deliver on its promises, MPEG-4 AVC needs to go beyond the codec and encoding box and be readily available in end-to-end systems that enable broadcasters and operators to rollout next-generation networks," said Matthew Goldman, vice president of Technology, Compression Systems, TANDBERG Television Inc.

TANDBERG Television is demonstrating the EN5990 broadcast encoder with Conexant's HDTV AVC reference decoder systems at the National Association of Broadcasters trade show this week in Las Vegas.
