Fixstars, Broadcast International launch H.264 Encoder for PS3
Posted by Kai Staats, Wednesday July 01 2009 @ 10:23AM EDT


LOVELAND, COLORADO, 1 July 2009 - Fixstars and Broadcast International today announce the immediate availability of CodecSys CE-10 series, a near real-time, broadcast quality H.264 encoder which runs on the Sony PLAYSTATION® 3 platform. The CodecSys CE-10 takes advantage of the readily available, inexpensive Sony PS3 for its processing engine, making it the most accessible, near real-time product in the HD encoding realm.

"The launch of the CodecSys CE-10 for PS3 marks a new era of professional level H.264 encoding at an affordable, consumer price,” said Satoshi Miki, CEO of Fixstars Corporation. "This software based encoding system frees the video workstation from the burden of what is otherwise an intensive process. The user may continue to edit uninterrupted, while the PS3 produces high quality HD output in near real-time."

Connected to a PC via a gigabit ethernet, the PS3 performs as an external, dedicated video encoder. All encoding is handled by the PS3 which runs an embedded version of Yellow Dog Linux entirely from ROM, thus shifting the CPU-intensive processing away from the workstation.

Unlike hardware-based encoders on the market, the software-based CodecSys CE-10 is easily updated, delivering improvements to increase encoding speeds, image quality and other features. Reduce hardware costs by implementing updates rather than replacing out-of-date hardware.

"The CodecSys CE-10 addresses the biggest technology challenge we now face--video bandwidth," said Rod Tiede, president and CEO of Broadcast International, "The demand and popularity of video is growing at an amazing rate for both personal and businesses applications and the CodecSys CE-10 will significantly improve the production of video in all applications."

CodecSys CE-10 Personal: - H.264 software encoder with support for 1080i/p full HD. - Max bit-rate 15Mbps, Blu-ray standard compliant. - Licensed for personal use only. - $199.00 USD

CodecSys CE-10 Professional - H.264 software encoder support 1080i/p full HD. - Max bit-rate 150Mbps, Blu-ray standard compliant. - Licensed for commercial use. - $1,999.00 USD
