Huntington Beach, Calif. - TMPG Inc. (http://tmpg -inc.com/), the company that takes video to the next level, is pleased to announce that it has added the Accelcoder, a real time, professional H.264 encoding system from Fixstars Solutions, to its prestigious product offering.


"The state -of -the -art Accelcoder is the fastest, most powerful turnkey encoding system available today. It encodes Hollywood films with the highest quality for Blu -ray and
IPTV distribution. Through its supercomputer capabilities, it will provide live encoding speeds allowing for direct encoding from VTR tapes to H.264 files. Accelcoder offers studios a 3 -fold value proposition of video quality, speed and low price," commented Camilo Lopez of Fixstars Solutions.

By optimizing high -end encoding algorithms from the ground up, Accelcoder provides optimum cinematic video quality results. It also provides studios with the flexibility to meet a variety of format demands from customers. Output formats include: Blu -ray standard based H.264 ES, MPEG2 -TS and MP4.

"We are pleased to offer such a robust, turnkey encoding system. Compressing video in H.264 format usually requires long processing times. Current CPU processors take up to 15X real time to encode a feature in high quality mode. Accelcoder utilizes the power of the Cell/B.E., a high performance multi -core processor used in the fastest supercomputers on the planet, to provide real time encoding speeds with 30p/60i settings," commented Kimi Matsuki, TMPG Inc. CEO.

3D Encoding
Accelcoder supports 3D video encoding with side -by -side 3D and H.264 MVC (Multiview Video Coding) standard. This feature allows users to construct multiple views of one scene for stereoscopic 3D video coding. The 3D encoding meets the standards for both the Blu -ray Disc Association and IPTV.

Blu -ray Disc Standard Compliant
A key component of successful Blu -ray disc authoring is maintaining the intricate detail from the master video after encoding. Accelcoder outputs H.264 ES data that meets Blu -ray standards with the highest master definition fidelity. Accelcoder's proprietary encoding engine provides post -production professionals useful tools for setting several encoding parameters for an agile workflow. Confirmed ES files can be imported onto numerous popular authoring software programs.

IPTV and Video On Demand
Online distribution of video assets is becoming more important for production companies. Accelcoder improves the efficiency of video footage encoding for HD video in limited bandwidth channels such as IPTV or mobile devices. By directly encoding from the VTR deck in real -time, large amounts of video
can be quickly and efficiently encoded.

Professional Software Package
An intuitive user interface provides total control of the encoding workload. It offers a full range of professional tools to manage compression parameters such as bit rate and segment encoding. It also has preset functionality for quality or speed settings.

Pricing and Availability
The turnkey Accelcoder system is the most affordable choice among similar turnkey solutions. Compared to other high end encoding systems that do not provide H.264 and MPEG 2 video formats or ES, MPEG2 -TS and MP4 functionality, this product is a true professional encoding system value.
