MPEG-4 Advanced Video Coding

Improve Bandwidth Performance with MPEG-4 AVC
With up to 50 percent improvement in bit rate savings compared with MPEG-2 coding, Cisco MPEG-4 AVC (Advanced Video Coding) technology helps you:

  • Improve existing bandwidth performance
  • Deploy advanced interactive and high-definition TV (HDTV) programming
  • Reduce standard-definition (SD) programming costs

Deliver High Quality and Bandwidth Efficiency
Our MPEG-4 AVC solution includes encoders for both HD and SD video. This versatile portfolio helps you deliver high-performance, high-quality, bandwidth-efficient video to a rapidly expanding marketplace at a lower cost.

The Cisco MPEG-4 AVC solution offers:

  • High video quality at low bit rates
  • Third-generation HDTV encoders with AVC technology
  • Next-generation SDTV encoders with AVC plug-in upgrade options
  • Detail preserving, low bit-rate compression through advanced Cisco PreSightPlus preprocessing technology
  • Simultaneous picture-in-picture encoding in the same encoder for IPTV applications
  • Unique auto-concatenation footprint detection algorithm for digital video broadcasting–terrestrial (DVB-T), simulcast re-encoding, and contribution application
  • Extensive experience in analog-to-digital migration

Cisco MPEG-4 AVC also provides options for SD or HD video delivery applications, including IPTV, DVB-T, content distribution over satellite, contribution, direct to home, and more.
