|The Ericsson SPR1100 Broadcast Stream Processor is a high density broadcast video processor for operators to launch additional television services to the home; manage and migrate to MPEG-4 AVC; simplify time-shift TV ingest processing; and enable cost efficient disaster recovery sites for business continuity.|
Designed for video turnaround applications requiring video and audio transcoding or bit-rate changing, the Ericsson SPR1100 supports any-to-any MPEG-2/MPEG-4 AVC HD/SD transcoding for up to 24 HD or 72 SD video services, up to 144 stereo audio services, and can simultaneously generate Picture-in-Picture (PIP) service for all channels processed – all within a single 1RU rack space saving chassis. The processor is perfectly suited for Telco and Cable IPTV platforms and represents the most efficient in its class. In addition, it can serve as a high quality bit-rate changer allowing for lower overall bit-rates or VBR to CBR conversion for applications like time-shift TV ingest.
The high availability configuration with a hot-standby spare running as automatic 1+1 mirrored units ensures maximum reliability and service up-time. The unit also has a number of other reliability features including choice of single or dual power supply and hot-swap processing modules for in-field servicing and expansion. An advanced Web-based user interface allows easy configuration, without the need for an external control system, which allows the Ericsson SPR1100 to be added to any existing installation that needs dense video transcoding.
High density broadcast video processing for multiple applications including turnaround of content for telco and cable IPTV, time-shift TV ingest processing and cost-efficient disaster recovery sites for business continuity.
Any-to-any Flexible Transcoding
The Ericsson SPR1100 will transcode between MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC, SD and HD, with single and multi-program transport stream input and outputs over IP. Audio services can also be transcoded between MPEG-1/2 layer II, Dolby® Digital (AC-3) and Advanced Audio Codec (AAC) formats.
High Density Processing
Class leading density with transcoding for up to 24 HD or 72 SD and simultaneous PIP service generation in a 1RU chassis. Introduce new services in minimum of rack space.
“Pay As You Grow” Expansion
Only buy what you need today, the Ericsson SPR1100 can be expanded in the field with additional hot-swap Media Processing Modules and video transcoding licences.
