This device can decode both MPEG-2 and H.264 compressed video up to full HD resolution (1920 x 1080i) and thus delivers a complete solution for new satellite, terrestrial and cable HDTV receivers. In addition, the flexible audio processor can decode a wide variety of audio standards required by the broadcast market.

The MB86H52 HD H.264 Transcoder

Fujitsu’s MB86H52 is capable of compressing full HD (1920 x 1080) MPEG-2 video data to H.264 while maintaining video quality. This high compression makes it ideal for use in recording equipment, where recording time can be increased by 2 to 5 times.

The MB86H52 includes a full HD H.264 CODEC (COde/DECode) for video encoding and decoding, so that uncompressed video data can be compressed to the H.264 format, while the device can also decompress video data from compressed or transcoded H.264.

Fujitsu develops and supports a comprehensive suite of products for digital STBs and Digital Televisions. Its families of MPEG Decoder, Encoder and Transcoder offer cost-effective and high performance solutions for both SD and HD applications. IBC, an event created for everyone involved in the design, management and delivery of content for the entertainment industry, provides the ideal meeting place to demonstrate these solutions.

Members of Fujitsu’s technical, marketing and sales-support teams are available on the stand to answer your questions and talk you through the demonstrations.
