Motorola Supplies MPEG-4 Network Encoder to Midwest Video Solutions

Midwest Video Solutions, an IPTV headend services provider serving 16 member companies throughout the Upper Midwest, has selected Motorola's MPEG-4 Network Encoder for deployment by the end of the year. This upgrade to the Motorola multi-channel MPEG-4 AVC network encoder family will enable MVS to migrate two diverse MPEG-2 headend platforms at separate locations to a single consolidated MPEG-4 platform, streamlining the delivery of content while accelerating the delivery of personalized media experiences and increasing programming choice for customers. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Motorola's NE-4012 is a high-density solution designed to deliver purely IP-based multi-channel video compression capabilities and services. It combines the decoding of IP video services with advanced MPEG-4 AVC video encoding. The platform is able to deliver two channels of video compression in a 1RU package.
