Ericsson Voyager II Multiformat HD MPEG-4 DSNG Encoder


Ericsson Televisions Fifth Generation DSNG Encoder

Voyager II is Ericsson’s fifth generation DSNG Encoder. It is the most flexible and scalable news gathering product on the market, reflecting Ericsson’s technology leadership and unique heritage in a market segment we created 15 years ago with the launch of the world’s first DSNG encoder.

DSNG is one of the most demanding segments in the broadcast world, with requirements for solutions to be fully integrated, deliver maximum performance and be fully adaptable while giving the highest levels of equipment interoperability. Voyager II excels in all these areas, delivering the best return on investment to operators and service providers through the widest range of software upgrade paths and expansion options.

Based on our in-house technology, Voyager II is built upon a new and revolutionary modular chassis design in a spacesaving 1RU form factor with up to six hot swappable option slots. It supports a comprehensive range of processing options, including the highly flexible, multi-standard, multi-format “x-series” range of encoders, making it the first DSNG to unleash the power of MPEG-4 AVC 4:2:2 encoding with 10-bit precision at up to 1080p50/60 resolutions. An integrated satellite modulator offers high order DVB-S and DVB-S2 modulation on both IF and L-Band outputs.

Voyager II features a fully functional front panel that provides users maximum control of this incredibly flexible unit. Based on industry feedback it introduces a bottom-up re-engineered hardware and menu structure, allowing fast access to the most common SNG operations, easy monitoring of incoming audio and video signals and a level of operator’s customization, while maintaining the all-important familiarity with today’s most popular SNG units.

Voyager II represents the most advanced DSNG unit on the market, offering broadcasters, operators and service providers the level of integration, flexibility and scalability necessary to future-proof any operational investment during today’s technology migration.
