Ericsson Video Processor Chassis
The Ericsson Video Processor Chassis is a high density, multi-functional, video processing platform. It is designed for the evolving requirements of today’s broadcasters. The Video Processor 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 Video Processor chassis supports a comprehensive range of video processing options, including SD MPEG-2 and HD MPEG-4 AVC encoding on hot swappable option modules.
The platform’s modular design allows service providers to upgrade functionality and add new services incrementally, avoiding costly headend upgrades.
The Video Processor Chassis offers broadcasters the most advanced video and audio compression technology available today and is part of Ericsson’s portfolio of products including receivers, decoders, and descramblers all seamlessly integrated into a complete headend system with nCompass Control by Ericsson.
Ericsson EN7190 MPEG-4 AVC High Definition System Encoder
Achieving the best picture quality at the lowest bit-rate enables operators to broadcast more channels in their available bandwidth over digital cable, satellite and terrestrial networks – maximizing return on investment of this valuable resource. For broadband operators offering TV services over xDSL networks achieving the lowest bit-rate can provide multiple simultaneous services into the home, or be used to extend the loop length over which TV services can be carried from the DSLAM to the consumers’ home – maximizing return on network investment.
The EN7190 MPEG-4 AVC HD encoder provides excellent MPEG-4 AVC HD compression delivering a 15 percent efficiency gain over the previous generation of encoders. In addition to excellent picture quality, the EN7190 delivers high density (up to six channels per 1RU) and low power consumption. The EN7190 is also available as re-encoder variant to deliver a no compromise full decode / encode solution for cable and IPTV turnaround applications.
Excellent Coding Efficiency The EN7190 option module delivers a 15% compression gain over the previous generation of HD MPEG-4 encoders. This allows operators to add one extra channel in six or save one RF channel in five without loss in picture quality. Efficient Rack Space For installations where rack space is at a premium, the Video Processor Chassis delivers the highest density of any broadcast quality MPEG-4 encoder solution with up to six EN7190 option modules, halving rack space requirement in comparison to existing deployed systems. This high density enables a rolling upgrade of a headend with minimum spare rack space. The re-encoder variant of the EN7190 is just as space efficient allowing six high quality transcodes per rack unit.
Hot Swappable Support and Module Level Redundancy
The EN7190 option module is hot swappable allowing in-field servicing and system expansion without disrupting other on-air channels. Redundancy management under nCompass Control by Ericsson can be both module and chassis based for ultimate resilience without disruption non-failed channels.
