Posted on September 9, 2010

Ottawa, ON – September 9, 2010 –  International Datacasting Corporation (TSX: IDC), a global leader in providing IP-based datacasting solutions for the distribution of broadband multimedia content announces its next-generation video and audio products at IBC 2010, the world’s largest broadcasting industry conference and exhibition.

With 4K, HD, 3D, mobile digital, live streaming, satellite and IP, there’s never been a better time to be in broadcasting.  The bandwidth required to deliver on these technologies however can lead to dramatically higher costs that can be prohibitive for broadcasters of all sizes. IDC’s next generation platforms combine the latest in technology with advanced bandwidth optimization tools to provide a complete solution that attacks these dual challenges head-on.  Offering best in class scalable solutions, IDC is pleased to announce our new video and audio platforms to our customers at IBC stand #1.C29.

  • IDC’s new Tiernan Titan encoder platform debuts with an unprecedented group of core features at affordable prices and a variety of models tailored to specific industry requirements.  Recognizing that the demand for bandwidth is higher than ever – The Titan® platform is designed to provide improved compression performance for HD transmissions in MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 that result in a dramatic reduction in bandwidth usage. Looking for HD sports contribution, news contribution, ATSC, ISDB-T, DVB-T, and HD support?  Your search ends with IDC and the new Tiernan Titan® encoder platform.
  • IDC is the leader in 3D-Live delivery worldwide and we are pleased to announce our new Seamless® 3D features by displaying the world’s first end to end system for 3D contribution and distribution. The Seamless® 3D system features advanced highly efficient Sensio® compression to provide high quality 3D programming with up to a 50% reduction in bandwidth usage. The Seamless® 3D delivery system integrates single box solutions including the new Titan 3D encoder and the SuperFlex ProVideo 3D receiver for guaranteed interoperability with simple installation and operation.
  • The new IDC PROFline STR satellite audio broadcast receiver is a flexible solution with scalable options aimed at the demanding midrange market.  The STR can be delivered in a basic low cost platform and upgraded to suit your needs.  With DVB-S2 and an ultra-low symbol rate, satellite capacity is squeezed to a minimum while the MPEG4 AAC ensures that your audio sounds great.  With MPEG over IP inputs and outputs as well as an optional network management system, the STR is ideal for regional networks as well as cost-conscious larger networks.  Our innovative new design reduces the need for on-going maintenance while improving reliability and durability.

“IDC is renowned for short communication lines, quick access to our people and for providing local support in our markets - the real-life challenges of broadcasters.” said Fred Godard, IDC President &CEO.  “Our new product lines combine our legendary service with practical best-of-class solutions at competitive price points and lower bandwidth usage.
