ATEME Kyrion DR8400 SD/HD MPEG-2/MPEG-4 Decoder

The Kyrion™ DR8400 is a Universal Integrated Receiver/ Decoder supporting all MPEG profiles including MPEG-4 4:2:2 10-bit and latest HEVC.

The DR8400 is designed for contribution markets where premium quality and performance are more important than ever.

The DR8400 gives by default 3 different input types: built-in DVB-S/S2 demodulator, IP Gigabit and ASI with a TS bit rate of up to 200Mbps. Combined with a decoding bit rate reaching 110Mbps with no compromise in CABAC, the DR8400 is addressing a large spectrum of contribution applications or primary distribution.

By offering the first H.264 4:2:2 10-bit solution, ATEME takes another technology step improving Video Quality over 8-bit. The DR8400 in combination with CM4101 secures your Video Quality end to end, completing the Video Quality chain from Primary Contribution point to Distribution point offering the highest restitution fidelity.

Ericsson RX8252 Program Transcoder

The Ericsson RX8252 Program Transcoder allows legacy systems to continue MPEG-2 operation whilst allowing the Programmer to distribute using MPEG-4 AVC compression by offering both dense and high quality transcoding from MPEG-4 AVC to MPEG-2.

Broadcasters and Programmers are continually looking to take advantage of technological advances that reduce their distribution costs. MPEG-4 AVC compression in conjunction with DVB-S2 satellite transmission is the perfect combination to achieve such transmission efficiency gains. However, many TV systems are locked into MPEG-2 technology for the foreseeable future by the deployed set-top box population.

The RX8252 Program Transcoder offers a high level of transcode density and sophistication. The RX8252 can be configured to enable up to 6 transcodes of any combination of HD to HD, HD to SD and SD to SD transcoding – allowing the programmer to address all tiers of service providers. In addition to video processing the RX8252 Program Transcoder also provides an unsurpassed level of flexibility in its network interfacing through a choice of service filtering and PID remapping capabilities.

Program content delivered over satellite is securely protected through the RX8252 Program Transcoder’s conditional access capabilities. The RX8252 is fully integrated to provide compatibility with DVB Common Interface and BISS CA. Conditional access and control ability can be further enhanced by employing Director by Ericsson – a sophisticated CA and receiver population control and management system.

RX8252 Product Overview

A Program Transcoder With an Unrivalled Pedigree
The RX8252 Program Transcoder shares its heritage with Ericsson’s
fourth generation RX8200 Advanced Modular Receiver, providing a
level of quality and flexibility that is unsurpassed.

Increased Distribution Capacity and Efficiency
The RX8252 Program Transcoder, in combination with Ericsson’s
MPEG-4 AVC Encoders, DVB-S2 and PREKOR™ Satellite
Modulators achieves a level of bandwidth efficiency that is unrivalled
allowing more or higher quality HD services per transponder
compared with any competing solution.

Wide Choice of Inputs and Outputs for Enhanced Connectivity
The RX8252 can be integrated into a variety of system architectures,
including satellite delivery, ASI and IP systems through a choice of
input and output modules.

Simplified Control and Lower Cost of Operations
Organizations with large populations of RX8252 Program Transcoders
or other Ericsson receivers can simplify control by integrating with the
Director by Ericsson control system. Director provides remote, overair,
single-view control and CA from a central location, reducing the
need for on-site local operators.

Ericsson Video Processor Chassis

The Ericsson 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 swappable 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 swappable 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’s portfolio of products including receivers, decoders, and descramblers all seamlessly integrated into a complete headend system with nCompass Control by Ericsson.

Video Processor Chassis Overview
Ericsson’s Video Processor Chassis is the basis for the most efficient video compression engines available to the broadcast market.

The platform itself is designed to address both the need for density with up to six option slots and the need for high resilience by making all the option slots hot swappable and the addition of a dual PSU version of the chassis.

Redundancy under nCompass Control by Ericsson can be both card and chassis based for ultimate resilience without disrupting non-failed channels.

The Video Processor Chassis supports Ericsson’s latest range of encoders.

The SD MPEG-2 EN8100 is simply the most efficient SD MPEG-2 encoder available. It delivers high quality SD video at bit-rates previously unachievable with the MPEG-2 standard. The radical design of the EN8100 is aimed specifically at the most demanding low bit-rate applications. The EN8100 is the ideal MPEG-2 real-time encoder for high performance DTH applications via satellite, digital terrestrial or cable.

The EN8190 is Ericsson’s third-generation of MPEG-4 AVC HD encoder. The EN8190 breaks new ground by implementing interpolating RDO coding technology for low bit-rate high quality HD MPEG-4 AVC compression.

Based on Ericsson’s own in house design, the EN8190 pushes encoding efficiency to new levels of excellence beating the previous generation of encoders by up to 25 percent.
