Broadcast International says that video encoders built on its CodecSys Video Compression Software and multi-core processors will change the video world. BI says that it can deliver HDTV broadcasts on 90% of PCs and 300 million mobile devices at 3 Mbps or less.

"We use more than one codec...but we use them in a single encoder. Each is good at something in particular, like dark or bright scenes, or slow-motion or fast motion scenes. The system takes a look at the outputs and selects the one that uses least bandwidth and then recombines the outputs. It then checks the final scenes to see how a human eye would perceive it and makes sure the video is of high enough quality," said Tiede.

BI also says that in the future they will be able to get HDTV to 1.5 Mbps. The new codec could represent considerable cost savings in reduced bandwidth for satellite, cable TV, mobile Tv and other providers. The currently used codec for HDTV requires 19.4 Mbps to deliver HDTV.
