Teracue heads to Winter Olympics

The Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver is using IPTV encoders and decoders from Teracue. The ENC-200 H.264 encoder and the DEC-200 H.264 decoder were supplied to Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk.

A ready-to-broadcast signal, which goes to ARD and/or ZDF is encoded with the ENC-200 into a compressed H.264 format and is streamed via an IP network into hotels in Vancouver to be distributed and decoded again there. This gives the editorial teams on site the chance to follow the Olympic Games in hotels where normally the ARD and ZDF signals are not available.

Teracue says its devices were chosen for their simple operation using a web browser. Furthermore it says its equipment provides excellent picture quality with a low broadband bandwith, low latency and reliability.
