ERTU selects Ericsson for upgrade

Infrastructure provider Ericsson has announced that it has supplied Egyptian Radio and Television Union (ERTU) with a new contribution and distribution video headend solution to upgrade its network.

The upgraded network covers the Upper Egypt region and connects over 30 of ERTU’s contribution studios via SDH Microwaves links, enabling the broadcaster to distribute high quality MPEG-2 4:2:2 content between the facilities. The full ERTU system comprises Ericsson MPEG-2 E5710 encoders, RX8200 decoders, MX8400 multiplexer and TT6120 network adapters, which are fully controlled by nCompass Control, the management system for broadcast headends for configuration, system monitoring and redundancy.
