T-21 Technologies Aims To Advance 4K/UHD HEVC in Sports Broadcasting
The Sports Video Group is pleased to welcome T-21 Technologies as a corporate sponsor. Headquartered in Jacksonville, FL, the company bridges broadcast and information technologies delivering 4K and Ultra HD HEVC, 1080p AVC, and 1080i MPEG-2 decoders, transcoders, and encoders. T-21 solutions are designed for the broadcast, security, ITS, and professional-audiovisual markets.
T-21 was founded by broadcast-industry veteran Kevin Ancelin and security/ITS veteran Mehdi Daryadel in September 2014. The company has delivered more than 800 T-21–branded and OEM products for key market partners globally.
“The Sports Video Group provides community and resources for professionals involved in the sports-video industry,” says Ancelin, who is CEO. “T-21 plans to actively participate with the group. Beyond sharing T-21’s solutions and services with the members, we also plan to build awareness of HEVC, UHD, and the associated tools that will deliver large-format sports into our homes and venues. We are ready and excited to participate with and contribute to the SVG.”
Currently, the T9261-D decoder is used by major global broadcasters to monitor HEVC UHD and AVC HD contribution and distribution paths. T-21 solutions also provide edge transcoding of HEVC UHD to AVC for direct distribution to legacy monitoring and OTT platforms.
