Televisa Utilizes NTT Electronics Encoders, Decoders To Deliver FIFA Confederations Cup

NTT Electronics’ H.265/HEVC Video Encoder HC10000E and H.265/HEVC Decoder HC10000D were used by Televisa for the transmission to Mexico of FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia (June 17 – July 2)

“The reason why we selected NTT Codecs is because of its high quality picture and low latency even during fast movement of soccer games”. says Mr. William Aguirre, General Director of Satellite Operations Televisa.

“We are pleased that Televisa selected NTT Electronics HC10000E and HC10000D for the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup” says Hisashi Ibaraki, Executive Vice President of Digital Video Component Business Group of NTT Electronics. “Using HEVC instead of H.264 gives an option to reduce the bit rate and improve the quality. Not only is the compression important, but the latency is extremely important as well. Currently NTT Electronics supports 33ms end to end latency for HD and 100ms end to end latency for 4K”.
