【Inter BEE 2013 TV】Mitsubishi Electric implements an HEVC codec on a single small circuit board
Mitsubishi Electric will be exhibiting and demonstrating new technologies and solutions for broadcasters, beginning with their newest HEVC codec.
Taking advantage of their many years of technical experience, Mitsubishi has implemented a codec complying to the new HEVC/H.265 video compression standard, which is expected to become widespread in the future, on a single small circuit board. At the booth, video played with this circuit board will be demonstrated.
In the Helisat corner, a system will be demonstrated which allows aerial images from a helicopter to be directly uplinked to a satellite and broadcast in realtime. This system allows coverage of a broad area with one base station, is not influenced by mountains and high rise buildings, and realizes stable video transmission. The system also supports bidirectional audio and data transmission between the base station and the helicopter, thus allowing filming instructions to be transmitted from the base station, and also allowing direct remote control of the camera.
Another demonstration will be videos from the automatic weather forecast program transmission system, which is a system to create and transmit weather forecast programs, and is run as a collaboration between the Japan Weather Association Co., Ltd., and Mitsubishi Electric Information Systems Co., Ltd. This system automatically inserts the latest weather data into scenes in real time, and automatically transmits the resulting program based on a predetermined program scenario. With an intuitive and easy to use GUI-based user interface, the broadcaster can create their own unique scenes. The system also allows a wide range of functions to assist weather commentators, such as zoom, line drawing, and marking.
Commercial mobile radio systems which use IP wireless communication networks and the mobile telephone network will also be exhibited. This system is operational anywhere in Japan within coverage of mobile telephones, and does not require specialized relay stations and wireless transmission permits, thus allowing use immediately after purchase. Basic functions include communication with simultaneous calls, group calls, and individual calls, and an ASP (Application Service Provider) allows easy management of vehicle position, vehicle motion, etc.
DLP based projectors with LED light sources will also be exhibited. This system has a small joint area between the screens, and allows display of high-resolution, high-quality video on multiple large screen displays. It is an ideal display for the monitoring field, where detailed information must be displayed 24/7. The exhibit booth will recreate a broadcasting mastering booth, and will demonstrate joined surveillance methods using multiple videos, sound level meters, terminal equipment, etc.
