Thomson Video Networks has a long tradition of making premium video encoder products. The ViBE encoder line is 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) from Thomson Video Networks with greatly increased processing power providing premium compression and true multipass MPEG-4 AVC encoding. Together, these technologies deliver MPEG-4 AVC compression at a greater-than 50 percent efficiency compared to MPEG-2 systems. The ViBE line is well-suited for satellite and terrestrial broadcast applications and other kinds of content aggregation—as well as for telco operators looking to launch IPTV services over their existing voice/data networks.
Perfect for HD Content Aggregation
Based on the most advanced video compression engine on the market today, the ViBE EM3000 encoder is the reference in HD encoding, for both video and audio compression. With the new ViBE encoder, you can take advantage of the full benefits of MPEG-4 AVC compression. With the ability to use all available compression toolsets, including true High Profile, the encoder lets you
broadcast high-quality HD content at bit rates as low as 4 Mb/s.
Combining compression efficiency and advanced pre-processing, it delivers clearer pictures with increased depth and clarity. As a result, you can deliver video content across all networks in a way that sustains the viability of your business model—and lets your customers enjoy a premium viewing experience. It even offers high bit-rate compression, for near transparent quality at up to 50 Mb/s.
The audio encoding features of the ViBE EM3000 Encoder are equally impressive.
With integrated Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 Surround Sound generation, you can deliver audio that
matches the high quality of the HD video. In addition to Dolby Digital Plus, the ViBE EM3000 Encoder features the latest AAC audio compression for ultra-low bandwidth utilization. HD MPEG-2 encoding as an option. This provides high-performance compression in MPEG-2 for broadcast.
The ViBE EM series of encoders have successfully passed the Microsoft Mediaroom conformance tests. Thanks to this conformance, the ViBE MPEG encoders are the perfect choice for any Microsoft Mediaroom IPTV deployments.
NEW! The ViBE EM3000 can process SMPTE2020 audio metadata and use it to encode PCM audio in AAC-LC/HE-AAC with metadata.
