The article reports on Motorola's introduction of a series of integrated receiver and decoder devices that automatically convert MPEG-4 video programming into MPEG-2. It discusses the key features and benefits offered by the Motorola DSR-6050 device. The article reveals that one of the primary design goals for the DSR-6050 was ensuring the transcoded MPG-2 stream meets the image quality expectations of programmers.
