IDC MPEG Video Encoder Titan-series
IDC MPEG Video Encoder Titan-series
Brand: International Datacasting (IDC)
Part number: Titan-One or Titan-Two
The IDC Titan-series is a high performance video encoder built to tackle the unique challenges of professional outside broadcasting.
Purpose Built for Outside Broadcasting
It is almost twenty years since IDC supplied some of the world’s first MPEG encoders and decoders to be used in outside broadcast vehicles. We now have units deployed in almost every country in the world, helping our broadcast customers tackle the unique and demanding challenges of news and sports contribution. TITAN combines updated core technology capable of delivering new levels of performance, with an overall product design based on nearly two decades of outside broadcast experience.
Easy to Use
Setting up a video encoder can be challenging at the best of times. Errors made while configuring encoders in the pressurized environment of a major sports or news event can prevent feeds from getting through. TITAN has been designed to enable operators who might not be experts in video compression, to set up contribution links quickly and easily. Extremely intuitive menus and front panel controls allow operators to define and enable compression and modulation parameters with only minimal training. For users who prefer Web based control, the built-in Browser interface is equally intuitive and easy to use.
Ensuring success in an outside broadcast transmission requires interoperability with both the content being sent, and the equipment used to receive it. The TITAN encoder handles a very wide range of news and sports formats: from PAL or NTSC; from 720p to 1080i, and all the way to 1080p60 or even 3D encoding. Combined with IDC’s commitment to open standards and full interoperability testing with the world’s leading decoder vendors, you can be sure that the TITAN encoder will work in any broadcast environment.
At IDC we understand that your needs may change over time. TITAN is available in two versions; TITAN One supports standard definition; while TITAN Two can support both standard and high definition. TITAN’s flexible, software license-based architecture allows you to purchase only those features required today, and upgrade to a more advanced feature set as your requirements evolve. With a highly flexible and functional modulator, and the ability to add features such as an internal multiplexer, BISS encryption, and advanced audio and video formats, the TITAN offers a future-proof investment.
Outstanding Compression Performance
While everything else is important, impressive audio and video quality is critical to successful broadcasting. Through its unique combination of ASIC and FPGA technologies, the TITAN delivers industry leading video and audio compression quality. Advanced features including: dynamic GOP; and scene change, fade, and skin tone detection, allow TITAN to deliver the absolute best picture possible using whatever bandwidth is available. The TITAN supports low delay modes for interview transmissions, and single camera feeds can take advantage of extended GOP structures to provide outstanding video quality at extremely low bit rates.
The combination of DVB-S2 modulation and TITAN’s advanced MPEG-4 AVC compression allow operators to deliver outstanding audio and video feeds at a much reduced satellite bandwidth cost. Most TITAN users report being able to provide HD contribution feeds in an equal or smaller bandwidth than they had previously used for SD transmissions. TITAN makes standard definition news operation at 1 MSymbol/s a reality.
