Modulus Video to Introduce New Compact HD/SD MPEG-4 AVC Encoding Family at GLOBALCOMM

New Future Proof ME2000 Series Increases Flexibility and Reduces Risk in Deploying IPTV Offering Either High Quality HD or SD in 1RU

SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 24 / Anticipating IPTV operators' need for flexibility and high performance in a rapidly developing new market, Modulus Video today introduced its new ME2000 series MPEG-4 AVC encoding platform. The world's first compact (1 rack unit) multi-format encoding platform, the ME2000 series, expands Modulus Video's market leading line of AVC encoders with a system that can be easily switched via a software control between high definition and standard definition video outputs. The new ME2000 will be on display June 5-7 at GLOBALCOMM 2006 in Chicago, McCormick Place, Booth 67091.

Bob Wilson, Chairman and CEO of Modulus Video said, "Our IPTV customers have told us high performance coupled with operational flexibility is critically important to the development of their IPTV businesses. The new ME2000 series of encoders is a tremendous value; it is the only MPEG-4 AVC encoder that easily and cost-effectively provides high quality HD or SD in a single 1RU platform enabling service providers to adapt to changing market requirements. Start with SD encoding today and with additional software upgrade to HD later, or go HD now with the option of having SD output when required. We are taking the guesswork out of SD vs. HD channel needs and providing powerful next generation solutions built on the extremely successful ME1000 and ME6000 product families which we will continue to improve."

Full details about configurations and deliveries will be unveiled when the ME2000 family debuts to a live audience June 5th in Chicago at GLOBALCOMM 2006.
