Motorola unveils advances in video processing technology


Motorola Mobility announced that
its flexible closed-loop statistical multiplexer (statmux) offers bandwidth
efficiency and video quality improvements of up to twenty percent.


The statmux incorporates the
Motorola SE-6000 encoder with Motorola’s perceptual video processing (PVP) and
DM-6400 CherryPicker application platform.


By incorporating PVP with Motorola’s unique compression
algorithms, the SE-6000 encoder is capable of improving video quality by up to
20 percent, or achieving the same video quality with a 20 percent savings of
bandwidth required.  


Service providers have the option to use the PVP feature
only with premium content or for all the programs in the multiplex. If five
programs are contained in a multiplex, the 20 percent bit-rate reduction allows
enough space to insert a sixth program without sacrificing video quality.


The DM-6400 CherryPicker has been upgraded to include the
closed-loop statmux controller. A single DM-6400 can support up to 160Mbps of
statmux traffic, which can include any combination of closed-loop multiplexers
using the SE-6000 encoders as well as open-loop multiplexers using legacy


In addition, the DM-6400 includes the entire set of
features available from the classic CherryPicker design, enabling other
services on the same platform as required such as Simulcrypt, DVB support, ad
insertion, splicing, rate shaping and graphic overlay.


“This new closed-loop statmux incorporates
Motorola’s latest developments in the area of perpetual video processing and
statmux technologies,” said Joe Cozzolino, senior vice president and
general manager, Network Infrastructure, Motorola Mobility.


“By pooling Motorola’s video processing technologies
into one solution, we can enable service providers to deliver higher quality
video content or free up significant spectrum, based on the needs of their
network,” Cozzolino added.


Motorola Mobility recently announced the launch
of DEFY+. Building on the Motorola DEFY, Motorola DEFY+ offers protection with
water resistant, scratch resistant and dust proof design (IP67).  


Motorola DEFY+ has a 1GHz processor that runs 25 percent
faster and is more fun with the latest version of Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)
delivering a smarter operating system and better battery life to fully enjoy
your experiences.
