The Ericsson Contribution Encoder Chassis is a high density, multi-functional, video processing platform. It is designed for the evolving requirements of today’s broadcasters and network operators.
The chassis has a compact 1RU form factor with up to six hot swappable option slots with a single PSU or up to four option slots with a dual PSU option, making it an ideal solution for the whole spectrum of high resilience to high density requirements. The Contribution Encoder chassis supports a comprehensive range of processing options, including MPEG-4 AVC HD 4:2:2 hot swap encoding modules with 3G-SDI interfaces.
The platform’s modular design allows service providers to upgrade functionality incrementally, avoiding costly upgrades. The Contribution Encoder chassis offers broadcasters and network operators the most advanced video and audio compression technology available today and is part of Ericsson portfolio of contribution products including receivers, decoders, descramblers and control and management software.
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 encoding MPEG-4 AVC HD 4:2:2 with 10-bit precision. The encoder module provides 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.
