Demoing 1080p 60


Last month I talked about 1080p 60 encoding in reference to producing 3D TV. Now it turns out Motorola is demonstrating the technology at the NAB show. Product marketing director David Hopkins is in charge of showing off the new Motorola SE-6000 MPEG-4 encoder and explaining the benefits of the 1080p 60 format. By itself, 1080p combines the advantage of progressive scanning for high-motion video with the higher vertical resolution of the 1080 format. In other words, it’s better than 720p or 1080i. However, as Hopkins explains, add on the “60” at the end of 1080p and you also get the  flexibility of being able to deliver 30 frames per second each to the left and right eye. A bit futuristic yet, but clearly the technology exists to make it happen.
