Product Description

Sony PCS-XG80S

 HD Visual Communication System supports the input and output of 1080i (1080/60i or 1080/50i) video signal, becoming the HD standard format for many imaging devices recently. What's more, the system makes use of a high profile video codec that complies with ITU-T recommendation H.264 in order to transmit this 1080i video without degrading the quality.

The PCS-XG80S video codec also supports 720p (720/60p or 720/50p) as well as 1080i. The 1080i format, along with 720p, is a high-quality video format called HD. While 720p includes a 1280 x 720 pixel screen resolution, 1080i consists of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is more than double the resolution of 720p in terms of the number of pixels on the screen. This image uses the interlace format to refresh at a speed of 60 fields (or 50 fields) per second, reproducing smooth motion in extremely high definition.

ITU-T H.264 consists of many image coding tools and features, but actually use some profiles that define combinations of these tools and features are used for different purposes and applications. In general, conventional videoconferencing systems use the Baseline Profile, and they typically perform interlace/progressive conversion and reduce image resolution to 720/30p for transmission, even when the original format is 1080i.

But the PCS-XG80S supports High Profile, and it can encode 1080/60i and 1080/50i interlaced signal directly. The sender side judges in macroblocks whether to encode the odd and even fields separately or to encode the two fields as a single frame, and it performs the optimum encoding. The receiver side can reconstruct the original video format. Because no format conversion is performed, the system maintains the image quality of the 1080/60i or 1080/50i video from the PCSA-CXG80 standard camera for PCS-XG80S or other imaging device connected to the external input terminal, and smooth, high-quality video can be displayed.
