CAST opts for Motion JPEG instead of H.264 encoding in new streaming product

CAST Inc., which describes itself as a semiconductor intellectual property provider, is launching a new HD video encoder subsystem product that uses Motion JPEG (MJPEG) rather than the more widely utilized H.264 encoding standard to encode digital videos for streaming.

The reason for CAST’s departure from H.264 in the new product? The company says the solution is targeted at digital videos for which “moderate levels of compression are required” and where the video provider may need encoding accomplished faster, with less processing power required.
