The MVRD2200 is a high-quality professional MPEG encoder with the ability to filter, stabilize, and enhance analog source video quality prior to encoding. Powerful pre-filtering features include advanced 3D Y/C separation to reduce color noise and improve image quality, 3D digital noise reduction to eliminate noise in the analog video signal, a line time base corrector (LTBC) to correct jittery video images, and digital frame synchronization and auto gain controls.
The MVRD2200 delivers the MPEG-2 output required by today's video professionals when encoding using the Main Profile at Main Level (MP@ML) setting. MP@ML features true IBP frame format, providing the highest-quality video output at the lowest bandwidth. In addition, the MVRD2200's variable bitrate capabilities -- from 1Mbps to 15Mbps -- are some of the most effective techniques available for maintaining video quality while reducing the overall file size. The MVRD2200 supports both composite and S-Video inputs, and is scalable up to full-D1 resolution with NTSC and PAL format support. The MVRD2200 also supports I-frame-only MPEG-2 encoding.
The software bundle with the MVRD2200 includes MPEG Station, a capture and playback software utility, and a DV AVI-to-MPEG file conversion utility. MPEG Station provides full-resolution overlay for previewing footage during capture. It features a detailed selection of adjustable encoding settings that users can modify to meet their video quality requirements. An Adobe Premiere timeline export plug-in is included for fast, high-quality encoding directly from the timeline. An SDK is also included to let program developers create custom software that utilizes the MVRD2200 hardware for a specific encoding tasks.
THe MVRD2200 will be available this month through Canopus authorized dealers and system integrators for a suggested retail price of $1499.
