The MediaKind AVP 4000 system encoder answers all those needs, delivering high quality system encoding for IPTV, Cable, Satellite and Broadcast. Part of the multiple award winning MediaKind AVP encoder range, the AVP 4000 also incorporates the rich toolset of MediaKind’s market leading VPC system encoder. A compact 1RU form factor offers up to six hot swappable option slots, for combinations of encoding and auxiliary modules. Dual power supplies protect services and an on-board video monitor gives instant operator feedback. Unlike conventional ‘box per application’ encoder products, the AVP 4000 shares a common toolset, common chassis and common interface with the rest of MediaKind’s award winning AVP products. That means media organisations can use a common encoder for a wide range of encoding needs, without the cost and complexity of a multi-vendor ’mix and match’ approach. The AVP 4000 is equally suitable for deployment as a system component, or as part of a MediaKind multi-platform or multiscreen system solution.
The AVP 4000 is powered by Ericsson’s first ever video processing chip. This completely new 10 bit Ericsson designed and built encoding chip, builds on two decades of market leadership in encoding algorithms and techniques, delivering outstanding picture quality at HD and SD, in both MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC. Codecs and resolutions can be upgraded via software, removing the need for complex hardware changes. The Ericsson chip is multi-codec, multi-profile and multi resolution, offering both encoding and transcoding. The AVP 4000 delivers levels of quality, performance and operational flexibility, not found on conventional encoding products. All of these benefits translate to the bottom line.
Ericsson CE-X Option Module
The CE-x/A encoder module unleashes the power of MPEG-4 AVC Fidelity Range Extensions (FRExt), enabling broadcasters and operators to capture, archive and distribute content in the best possible quality HDTV.
The CE-x/A encoder module is built on the most flexible and future-proof platform available on the market, capable of encod ing MPEG-4 AVC HD 4:2:2 with 10-bit precision. The encoder module provide a uniquely modular software upgradeable solution that allows customers to exploit the advantages of MPEG-4 AVC compression in contribution and distribution (C&D) applications, while maintaining compatibility with the existing generation of MPEG-2 Video based networks.
The flexibility and amazing portability of the AVP solution allows customers to dimension their networks for the exact needs of today, while taking into consideration the natural expansion of tomorrow, effectively minimizing the overall total cost of ownership and maximizing the true value of the media assets. For example, 2D connections based on MPEG-2 Video compression today can be upgraded in-field easily to 3D MPEG-4 AVC HD 4:2:2 10-bit contribution links, even on an event basis. An integral part of the Ericsson MPEG-4 AVC HD 4:2:2 system solution, the CE-x/A encoder module effectively enables the full-scale migration to MPEG-4 AVC all-HD in C&D.
