Anywhere, Anytime Video Using the H.264 Specification
"Placeshifting" allows consumers to watch live or recorded content on any wireless device, over the Internet or over a data network. However, to stream full HD-resolution content to mobile devices requires the use of transcoding technology, which adjusts the bit rate required to send the stream over a low-bandwidth network. This paper describes the features the Fujitsu MB86M0x family of low-power, bi-directional transcoders, which make placeshifting possible. The Fujitsu MB876E631 bridge IC, a 10-interface controller for video processors and advanced Wi-FI TV tuner designers, is also described. Finally, it discusses the H.264 standard, a popular format for recording, compressing and distributing high-definition video.
