Fujitsu and Cisco Develop Video Contribution System

Fujitsu and Cisco have collaborated on the creation of a video contribution system for use over IP or satellite infrastructures. The new IP encoding platform includes the Cisco D9094 MPEG-4 advanced video coding (AVC) encoder, which was developed by Fujitsu to support high-quality high-definition (HD) and standard-definition (SD) video with the lowest latency that can be transmitted at low speeds. The Cisco D9094 encoder, and its standard-definition counterpart, the Cisco D9093 encoder, both include an option for a built-in satellite modulator, ideally suited for DSNG (Digital Satellite News Gathering) applications. The IP system includes the digital content processing technology of the Cisco Digital Content Manager (DCM) for IP forward error-correction and the capability to deliver massive horsepower capable of simultaneously processing hundreds of HD video streams.
