OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Jun 4, 2014) - International Datacasting Corporation (IDC.TO), the global leader in digital content distribution, is pleased to announce that it has shipped the new TITAN 3 Contribution Encoder to customers in North America, Europe, and Asia. This milestone has been achieved less than two months after the product launch announcement at the National Association of Broadcasters show.
The TITAN 3 provides the perfect balance of high video quality, ground-breaking latency performance, and best-in-class usability for demanding outside broadcast applications. IDC designed the TITAN 3 with extremely low latency - or encoding delay - of only 150ms, which enables broadcasters to be first to air with breaking news, and to conduct the most natural live interviews from remote locations. Broadcast professionals are already taking advantage of its advanced features for live events such as the 14th annual Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon. With available 4:2:2 10-bit encoding in High Definition, and support for 150 ms latency to a wide range of decoder platforms, TITAN 3 raises the standard for video contribution.
The TITAN 3 Contribution Encoder design is based on more than a decade of IDC experience serving the outside broadcast industry. TITAN Encoders are built from the ground up for the demanding conditions of outside broadcasting, featuring rugged construction to achieve superior reliability. The TITAN 3 retains the familiar, easy to use front panel which allows quick setup for mission critical operations, and is able to achieve signal on-air from power up in less than 60 seconds.
"Audiences everywhere are becoming more demanding, and challenging applications such as live news and sports require the best possible image quality as well as very low latency performance," said Doug Lowther, President and CEO of IDC. "IDC is proud to support leading edge broadcasters worldwide who are already showing strong interest in our latest groundbreaking video product."
