Canopus Launches MVRD2200 Realtime MPEG Encoder/Decoder
Posted Dec 5, 2003 Print Version   Page 1of 1

Canopus Corporation, announced MVRD2200, a professional real-time MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 encoding and decoding board. The MVRD2200 is the successor to the Canopus Amber and features additional analog video signal filtering, cleaning, and stabilization technology. An updated software development kit (SDK) provides full board function control and backward compatibility for Amber and MediaEdge applications.

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.
