ERICSSON TELEVISION AVP2000 CONTRIBUTION ENCODER

The Ericsson AVP2000 Contribution Encoder is a high density, multi-functional, video processing platform. It is designed for the evolving requirements of today’s broadcasters and network operators. The chassis has a compact 1RU form factor with up to six hot swappable option slots with a single power supply unit (PSU) making it an ideal solution for the whole spectrum of high resilience to high density requirements. The AVP2000 supports a comprehensive range of processing options in the form of hot-swappable modules. These include the x-series range of encoding modules, the most flexible and future-proof compression solution for contribution and distribution (C&D) applications.

The platform’s modular design allows service providers to upgrade functionality incrementally, avoiding costly upgrades. Already proven as part of Ericsson’s deployed 3DTV contribution system, its multi-channel capabilities and variety of I/O options provide the most flexible and configurable solution for high quality content delivery. MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC and JPEG 2000 are all supported.

The AVP2000 features an ergonomic front panel with integral monitor, giving instant user feedback, meeting the demands of the contribution environment, including ease of operations, quick menu access and effective monitoring. The AVP2000 offers broadcasters and network operators the most advanced video and audio compression technology available today and is part of Ericsson’s portfolio of C&D products which also include receivers, decoders, descramblers and control and management software.

AVP2000 OVERVIEW

High Flexibility, Reliability and Serviceability
Ericsson AVP2000 Contribution Encoder 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. A standard IP interface and a wide range of separate I/O options provide interfacing to multiple hybrid networks concurrently. The AVP2000 allows in-field serviceability, portability and system reconfiguration to address the widest range of C&D applications.

Leading High Quality Compression
The AVP2000 Contribution Encoder supports Ericsson’s range of CE-x Series encoder modules.

The CE-x Series encoder modules unleash the power of MPEG-4 AVC Fidelity Range Extensions (FRExt) enabling broadcasters and operators to capture, archive and distribute content in the best possible quality HDTV. The encoders are built on future-proof software upgradeable platforms capable of encoding MPEG-4 AVC HD 4:2:2 with 10-bit precision, while maintaining compatibility with the existing generation of MPEG-2 based networks. The CE-x Series encoder modules effectively enable the full-scale migration to MPEG- 4 AVC in contribution and distribution.

Based on Ericsson’s own in-house design, the AVP2000 Contribution Encoder pushes encoding efficiency, serviceability and upgradeability to new levels of excellence.
