Oki Electric Ind. Co. Ltd announced it has successfully transmitted video through satellite phone connections with its portable video compression transmitter, MPEG-4 Encoder RS-M.

The RS-M, launched in February 2005, is a video compression transmitter that can send real-time live video from remote locations by connecting to a camcorder. It integrates various functions necessary to transmit video, making possible an IP network based video transmitter with a compact size of 180(W)-by-117(H)-by-105(?)mm and weight of 1.2kg Oki added that this system can compress a video image to MPEG-4, with a maximum bandwidth of 1Mbps, transmitting real-time high definition video via various networks, including fixed LAN, wireless LAN, FOMA and PHS.

"We conducted the experiment based on locations such as marine vessels and mountain areas, where normal transmission routes are unavailable or, at best, difficult to maintain," said Yasukazu Hontama, President of Broadband Media Company at Oki Electric. "With the successful result which confirmed that the RS-M can transmit real-time video using a satellite phone connection, we believe the transmitter can be used in various applications, such as video transmission at disaster sites."
