Electra™ 5000 – Multi-Codec Multi-Service Encoder
The ability to deliver multiple services to a variety of devices—including television sets, PCs and mobile devices— is becoming a necessity in order to provide viewers with a richer experience.
At the same time, the architecture must be cost-effective, reliable and highly efficient. Harmonic’s Electra® 5000 encoder is the world’s most advanced MPEG-2 standard definition (SD) encoding platform, designed to address this ever-increasing demand for more video and audio services. The Electra 5000’s advanced encoding architecture enables operators to deliver within a given bandwidth, without compromising video quality. The Electra 5000 is ideal for operators who want to increase revenue per program and customer satisfaction.
The system also enables service providers to roll out more MPEG-2 channels with no disruption of service. With its standard IP interfaces, the Electra 5000 can be easily incorporated in Harmonic’s DiviTrackIP™ closed-loop statistical multiplexing solution. DiviTrackIP provides significant operational advantages and cost benefits by connecting encoders and multiplexers via a switched IP network rather than port-to-port ASI interconnects.
As a result, any encoder anywhere in the network can efficiently be part of any multiplex, essentially creating a “virtual headend.” Backed by Harmonic’s track record of innovation, system interoperability and exceptional support, the Electra 5000 is the most advanced MPEG-2 encoding platform for IPTV, satellite, cable or terrestrial applications available today.
