B110 – Ultra Low Latency 4K HEVC Encoder/Decoder

B110 is a broadcast quality HEVC codec module. The B110 can be configured as either encoder or decoder, but not both. The B110 is ideal for integration into broadcast systems such as wireless cameras, studio to transmitter links, satellite modems and ENG vehicles.

Offering exceptional compression ratios on video resolutions up to 4K UHD. The B110 codec module supports low latency making it ideal for live applications such as wireless cameras, ENG, SNG, Robotics and Aircraft Downlinks.

HEVC offers many advantages over H.264. HEVC compression offers bitrate savings of up to 50% over traditional H.264 solutions, this saves money on storage and contribution bandwidth, and increases range for downlink and robotics customers. HEVC also supports the new 4K UHD formats required for contribution. The additional efficiency of HEVC makes wireless transmission of 4K possible, or alternative 4 HD images. The B110 codec module from DBS is the ideal solution for those wishing to move to HEVC.

Latency is critical in many applications and the B110 codec is built to minimise latency without compromising quality. The 60mS end to end latency in HD, typically 75mS in UHD, makes the B110 a solution suitable for all live events.

The B110 codec encoder compresses a single 4K UHD input or up to 4 HD inputs in one unit. Each input can support 2 stereo pairs of embedded audio. Compressed streams are available as IP or on DVB_ASI for interoperability.

The B110 codec decoder compresses a single 4K UHD output or up to 4 HD outputs in one unit. Each output can support 2 stereo pairs of embedded audio. Compressed streams are input on DVB_ASI for interoperability (an additional module is required for decoder IP inputs)

The compact, design is easy to integrate offering a low risk route to market for customers.
