REVISION 1.8.1, RELEASED OCTOBER 17, 2013

  • All HDbridge 2500 and 2600 Series Modulators plus HDb2380-NA (QAM): Significant improvement to video quality through a unique implementation of mpeg-2 bidirectional -predictive frames (b-frames) and much better motion tracking.  The efficient implementation of b-frames still gets the benefits of reduced cumulative error (i.e. reduced video smudging) and smaller frame sizes. Smaller b-frames allow  the more important intra and  predicted frames to be larger, also improving the video. Finally, efficient b-frame encoding allows more time to track motion, allowing for another significant improvement in video quality
