Ericsson RX8200 Receiver Fully Configurable Online

The Ericsson RX8200 Advanced Modular Receiver is now fully configurable on the Satcom Resources website. Only pay for the options you need.

Broadcasters’ requirements for differing equipment configurations and the many and varied ways in which receivers are used is driving the need for a flexible receiver platform. The Ericsson RX8200 Advanced Modular Receiver has been designed to precisely meet these requirements.

By allowing each individual RX8200 to be configured and tailored to the user’s precise needs the perfect balance of functionality and cost can be achieved, resulting in a unit having only the required features without the additional expense of superfluous connectivity or functionality.

The RX8200 offers a vast and sophisticated array of configuration possibilities allowing it to cover a broad range of applications. The RX8200 can be tailored to standard definition or high definition uses with MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 decode technology whilst connectivity into the receiver is achieved with DVB-S2 satellite, IP and ASI options.

The high powered processing capabilities of the RX8200 enable the unit to be simply and easily upgraded in the field with additional software options to increment the functionality at any point after initial installation.

A New Receiver With an Unrivalled Pedigree

The RX8200 Advanced Modular Receiver is Ericsson’s fourth-phase receiver that builds on the success and knowledge of previous generations of products to ensure an unrivalled level of quality and reliability.

Increased Distribution Capacity and Efficiency

The RX8200 Advanced Modular Receiver, in combination with Ericsson’s MPEG-4 AVC Encoders and DVB-S2 PREKOR™ satellite modulators achieves a level of bandwidth efficiency that is unrivalled allowing more HD services per transponder compared with any competing solution.

Wide Choice of Inputs and Outputs for Enhanced Connectivity

The RX8200 can be integrated into a variety of system architectures, including ASI, IP and satellite delivery systems through a choice of input and output modules. The receiver offers a multitude of IP, audio and video outputs for high quality delivery to all major onward networks.
Simplified Control and Lower Cost of Operations
Organizations with large populations of RX8200 Advanced Modular Receivers or other Ericcsonreceivers can simplify control by integrating with the Ericcson Director control system.

Cortex-2 Management System by Ericsson

Ericsson’s second-generation Cortex-2 Management System is an extremely fast and effective system for scheduling real-time standard definition (SD) or high definition (HD) video content over IP or ATM connections between sites.

With Cortex-2, you never need to worry about connection conflicts or bandwidth allocation, as the system tracks all routes through the equipment and calculates bandwidth usage. Cortex-2 manages and monitors Ericsson’s market-leading encoders, receivers and network adaptors designed for contribution and distribution as well as third-party devices.

Built for mission-critical, real-time content delivery for point-to-point and point-to-multipoint connections, Cortex-2’s powerful, graphical event scheduler manages allocation of resources for video content distribution over any IP or ATM network. Cortex-2 is the ideal solution when you need to deliver video quickly and efficiently between two or more sites for time-sensitive newsgathering or video production.

Efficient, Cost-effective Way to Link Large Multi-site Distribution

The Cortex-2 management system can provide a cost efficient way to link large-scale multi-site distribution of video content. Using the system’s control of individual devices and complete monitoring capabilities, Cortex-2 provides easy and affordable stream delivery between sites keeping the operator informed of status at all times.

Simple and Effective Set-up

All Ericsson, Cisco and Leitch/Harris equipment in the network can be discovered automatically by Cortex-2. It will determine the capabilities and configuration for faster provisioning. This allows Cortex-2 to create a powerful inventory report of all the equipment capabilities, boards, software versions and licenses. It also enables Cortex-2 to model the system to enable routing of connections to ensure that resource conflicts do not occur.

Easy and Fast Configuration

The Cortex-2 management system can be administered from a single PC console and uses connection and equipment profiles for rapid configuration. Connections can be simply activated by selecting source and destination points, or alternatively pre-define connections can be scheduled or activated immediately. This allows an administrator to set-up the details of the connections and allows an operator to pick them from a list.
