EBU to Use NTT Electronics’ HEVC Codecs for Motor Sports 2016 Live Content Transmission


YOKOHAMA, Japan & BRUSSELS–(BUSINESS WIRE)– The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) has decided to test NTT Electronics’ HEVC encoder and decoder for live content transmission throughout the 2016 motor sports season.

The brand new HC11000E encoder and HC11000D decoder from NTT Electronics which uses the Cutting Edge HEVC technology will be one of the key transmission products adopted for several events during the 2016 season. Feed encoded with such equipment will be distributed over the EBU’s network. The trial is to confirm within an operational environment the capability of NTT Electronics HEVC products.
