Tektronix Inc. has signed an agreement with Vqual Ltd, a U.K.-based video software developer, to develop and market software solutions for next-generation video standards.

Next-generation video compression standards provide significant bandwidth advantages over traditional broadcast compression standards and offer additional services at a reduced cost with no compromise in video quality. In order to effectively capitalize on the new standards, engineers need ways to verify standards compliance as well as analyze and compare the performance of various video compression/decompression (codec) algorithms.

The partnership is anticipated to accelerate the delivery of products and solutions for network operators and equipment manufacturers seeking to implement next-generation technologies such as DVBH and 3G mobile phones and services, high definition DVD players and IP TV infrastructure, as well as set-top boxes and services. All these technologies use next-generation video compression standards such as H.264, Windows Media 9, MPEG-4 and 3GPP. The codec test and analysis software supplied by Vqual will be incorporated into various Tektronix components to facilitate these next-generation technologies by Tektronix customers.
