Divicom Television Broadcast 7000 Encoder at IBC 2006

Harmonic New Product at International Broadcasting Convention, IBC 2006, Amsterdam

Harmonic Inc (NASDAQ:HLIT) continues to label its Divicom digital video compression solution in the Electra 7000 high definition (HD) MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) encoder as "ground breaking".

Customers have confirmed bit-rates 20 to 30 percent lower than any currently deployed HD H.264 encoder, and the system has already been selected by five satellite and telco operators in North America and Europe to power their forthcoming HD services.

The Electra 7000 is the world's first multi-channel, multi-service HD H.264 encoder, that supports up to four full resolution HD channels and can simultaneously create low resolution services for picture-in- picture (PiP) or multi-channel mosaic applications.

Marketing is directed to you if you are in satellite, telco/IPTV and cable operators, applications where the Electra 7000 sets a radically improved benchmark for HD H.264 compression performance and video quality.
