NEC Corp. is set to roll out in July the VC-970 encoder and VD-970 decoder as part of an H.265/HEVC codec family that makes it possible to process 4K/ Ultra-High-Definition (UHD) video in real time. According to the company, the product series is capable of encoding 4K/UHD video to about one five hundredth of its original size, while performing ultra-low delay encoding and decoding of approximately 99ms.

The line-up supports BT.2020 and HDR, which is a next-generation technology that expands the colour gamut while increasing brightness and producing a high quality and truly immersive 4K/UHD video.

The hardware-based and compact sized (1U half rack) 4K/UHD codec is the successor of the first generation model (VC-8150/VD-8150) which has been highly praised for its highly-reliable hardware-based design and rich experience in commercial 4K/UHD broadcasting services.

In recent years, demand for 4K/UHD video quality has been rapidly increasing. As a result, the development of 4K/UHD related technologies are being accelerated around the globe to meet such rising demand, the company indicated.

Under these circumstances, NEC has targeted H.265/HEVC as a core technology and is now developing a full line-up of products for broadcasting and distributing programmes of 2K, 4K and 8K.
