Shanghai Telecom Rolls Out MPEG-4 AVC with TANDBERG TV

Shanghai Telecom is rolling out an IPTV service using MPEG-4 AVC video compression based on equipment supplied by TANDBERG Television and Siemens. The full service was launched last month in Shanghai's Pudong district and is delivering over 50 channels of content from providers such as CCTV and Shanghai Media Group.

The solution for Shanghai Telecom consists of a TANDBERG Television standard definition MPEG-4 AVC head-end which provides significant bandwidth savings of up to 50% on MPEG-2, and enables superior picture and sound quality. The TANDBERG EN5930 encoder is ideal in IPTV deployments where the bandwidth limitations inherent with existing DSL platforms create a challenge for operators in providing a broadcast quality video service to their customers.
