Tandberg Lands Another MPEG-4 Deal

Publish date:

PCCW-HKT Ltd., the Hong Kong-based telco that counts 450,000 Internet-protocol-TV subscribers, will use Tandberg Television’s MPEG-4 (Moving Picture Expert Group) encoders to deliver HDTV services over its digital-subscriber-line plant.

Tandberg already supplies PCCW with MEPG-2 encoders for its IPTV services.

PCCW is buying Tandberg’s “EN5990” MPEG-4 encoder. DirecTV Inc. is using the same encoder for its MPEG-4 service in the United States.
