Demo at NAB shows real-time video transcoding: Broadcast International is demonstating live high definition video encoding under 3Mbps in its booth at the NAB show in Vegas. This is the first time broadcast industry video will be encoded from a live camera feed at this rate of video compression. BI is also demonstrating its CodecSys video compression software with the IBM Media Hub Solution Framework running on a an IBM BladeCenter QS21 Cell/B.E. platform; it's doing real-time video encoding and transcoding, translating video from one format to another -- the demonstration emulates a production broadcast environment (variety of content, live and archived footage) that is encoded and transcoded in real time for delivery over multiple modes of distribution to multiple devices.
