    Default Italian software to revolutionise IPTV?

    Italian software to revolutionise IPTV?
    Thursday 15th January

    Naples-based company Eco Controllo claims it has developed a new Codec technology for High Definition digital TV with a compression which is up to four times superior to that currently available, including the latest generation H264 and MPEG-4.

    Successful trials of the ‘Castelli Codec’ have been conducted by the Regional Competence Center for ICT Technologies (CERICT) of Italy’s Campania Region, the National Research Council, the Pascale Foundation and the Intercollegiate Consortium for Computer Science. According to CERICT president, Claudio Cappelli, the new lossless format permits the multiplication of digital TV and interactive TV channels, as well as the improvement of quality of video for mobile phones. The more efficient use of bandwith on which digital TV travels is achieved by the optimisation of the organisation of data. Thanks to the new system, a 20 minute video which is 3.1 GB can be contained on an old floppy disk of 1.44 MB.

    Costing E5 million to develop, and 60 per cent financed by Italy’s Ministry for Economic Development, the Codec Castelli was built in one year and a half by 12 programmers.

    Aparent e o greseala in descerea codecului. In loc d 20 minute este vorba de 20 secunde. Totusi se pare ca acest codec are rezultate mai bune decat cele actuale. Iata o analiza comparativa facuta de dezvoltator :
