FOR-A Showcases Fujitsu’s New IP-HE950 H.265 Video Transmission Solution

At 2017 NAB Show, FOR-A introduced the latest product in Fujitsu’s line of video transmission solutions, the IP-HE950 real-time H.265/HEVC encoder/decoders. Employing the latest compression tools and image processing algorithms, the IP-HE950 supports real-time 4K contribution, as well as SD and HD.

FOR-A demonstrated the Fujitsu IP-HE950 as part of their IP/12G-SDI booth area. The Fujitsu IP series of video encoders and decoders use advanced technology encoding to perform real-time transmission of HDTV at low bit rates over DVB-ASI and broadband IP networks. The IP-HE950 utilises new H.265/HEVC technology, which can provide a two times compression ratio over H.264/AVC technology.

The IP-HE950 comes in a small 1U half rack size chassis, with front panel and keys for easy operation. Offering low-latency operation and high reliable IP transfer, the unit supports a wide range of video resolutions – including SD, HD and 4K. The IP-HE950’s video format auto sensing function will adjust compression video formats automatically. Users can elect to install the Fujitsu unit as an HD model first, then upgrade to 4K later with simple field upgradable software, making it a future-proof investment.

The IP-HE950 features robust network error correction, dual encoding capabilities, and a variable I/O interface, and offers standard support for a wide range of input-output interfaces. Two Ethernet ports come as standard with the IP-HE950.
