HDTV MPEG-2 encoders do exist, and run about $30,000. Your local TV
stations broadcasting HDTV will have them. Don't expect to see anything
sub $5k for about 2 years and sub $500 for about 5-10 years. Encoding
1080i resolution is a beast. Chances are we'll start doing it with raw
CPU in about 2-3 years. A 3.2 GHZ processor encodes 1080i at about
1/7th realtime speed right now.
