Tandberg Video Processor Chassis
The Tandberg/Ericsson TV 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 swap 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 swap 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 TV’s portfolio of products including receivers, decoders, and descramblers all seamlessly integrated into a complete headend system with nCompass Control by Ericsson.
Ericsson EN8190 MPEG-4 AVC HD Encoder Module
MPEG-4 AVC High Definition System Encoder
The EN8190 MPEG-4 AVC HD encoder provides the best MPEG-4 AVC HD compression in the world using new technology, designed from the ground up. Based on 18 years of encoder design experience, the EN8190 option module is a radical new design. The EN8190’s unique multi-point look ahead supports an iRDO (Interpolating Rate Distortion Optimization) engine that extracts the maximum efficiency possible from the MPEG-4 AVC specification. This efficiency gain coupled with Reflex™ Statistical Multiplexing typically allows operators to get more HDTV channels into their transmission bandwidth than any other solution.
Efficient use of Spectrum
The EN8190 option module delivers compression efficiency that allows;
- Five to six HD channels in a typical digital terrestrial transmission channel using DVB-T2
- Seven to eight HD channels on a typical satellite transponder using DVB-S2 and PREKOR™
- Eight to 10 HD channels on a typical DVB-C cable TV network
Hot Swappable Support and Module Level Redundancy
The EN8190 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.
Ericsson EN8130 MPEG-4 AVC SD Encoder Module
The EN8130 is Ericsson’s latest generation of SD MPEG-4 encoder. A dedicated hardware and firmware implementation, based on over 18 years in-house experience of creating high performance real-time encoders, the EN8130 delivers 15 percent more efficient compression compared to the previous generation.
