The Grass Valley ViBE 2000 are based on the world’s first professional-grade Mpeg 4 compression chipset. At the heart of this new encoder line is a dedicated application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) with greatly increased processing power, providing premium compression and true multi-pass encoding.
Together, these technologies deliver Mpeg-4 AVC compression at a greater than 50 percent efficiency compared to existing Mpeg-2 systems.
This type of efficiency is also available to operators who require Mpeg 2 encoding. By using their unique feature set and techniques developed from Mpeg-4 encoding, the ViBE EM2000 encoders greatly improves bandwidth efficiency. In Mpeg-2 applications, the ViBE 2000 can create enough bandwidth within a satellite transponder to carry at least an additional channel.
ViBE EM2000 A FLEXSTREAM PLATFORM
Based on the most advanced video compression engine on the market today, the ViBE EM2000 establish a new benchmark, not only in performance but also in terms of density, versatility, and power consumption. This encoder line can be configured as a single-channel or multi-channel unit, where the latter offers the advantage of both a reduced footprint and lower power consumption per channel. Each channel can be independently configured for Mpeg-2 or Mpeg-4 encoding, extending the possibilities for hybrid applications.
This flexible approach makes the ViBE EM2000 encoders perfect for applications ranging from small regional systems to large national headends covering all types of networks.
Combining compression efficiency, pre-processing, and high density, they deliver clearer pictures with increased depth and clarity. As a result, you can deliver video across all networks, sustaining the viability of your business model – and let your customers enjoy a premium viewing experience. The ViBE 2000 encoders also delivers significant saving in audio bandwidth utilization through the support of the latest audio compression formats, including Dolby Digital and AAC. Up to eight stereo pairs of audios are supported enabling multiple languages or additional radio services.
