Motorola’s Continued Advances in Video Processing Technology Delivers Video Quality Gains and Access to New Bandwidth for European Operators


AMSTERDAM – IBC 2011 – Sept. 8, 2011 - Bandwidth efficiency and video quality improvements of up to twenty percent can now be achieved by European operators with the introduction of Motorola Mobility, Inc.'s (NYSE:MMI) flexible closed-loop statistical multiplexer (statmux). The Statmux incorporates the Motorola SE-6000 encoder with Motorola's perceptual video processing (PVP) and DM-6400 CherryPicker application platform.


By incorporating PVP with Motorola's unique compression algorithms, the SE-6000 encoder is capable of improving video quality by up to 20 percent, or achieving the same video quality with a 20 percent savings of bandwidth required. Service provider’s have the option to use the PVP feature only with premium content or for all the programs in the multiplex. For example, if five programs are contained in a multiplex, the 20 percent bit-rate reduction allows enough space to insert a sixth program without sacrificing video quality.


The DM-6400 CherryPicker has been upgraded to include the closed-loop statmux controller. A single DM-6400 can support up to 160Mbps of statmux traffic, which can include any combination of closed-loop multiplexers using the SE-6000 encoders as well as open-loop multiplexers using legacy encoders. In addition, the DM-6400 includes the entire set of features available from the classic CherryPicker design, enabling other services on the same platform as required such as Simulcrypt, DVB support, ad insertion, splicing, rate shaping and graphic overlay.


"This new closed-loop statmux incorporates Motorola’s latest developments in the area of perpetual video processing and statmux technologies," said Joe Cozzolino, senior vice president and general manager, Network Infrastructure, Motorola Mobility, Inc. "By pooling Motorola’s video processing technologies into one solution, we can enable service providers to deliver higher quality video content or free up significant spectrum, based on the needs of their network."


Motorola's new statmux solution is available now for trials and will be commercially available for European operators and service providers in the first half of 2012.
