Ericsson to unveil new compression platform

Ericsson will launch a new compression platform at the NAB show in Las Vegas next week.

The company’s AVP encoding platform is a single rack-unit platform. Three variants will be released at NAB – the AVP4100 for the ATSC market in the US and Korea, the AVP3000 Voyager with multi-codec, mjulti-network support for live content acquisition, and the AVP2000 for contribution encoding.

The AVP4100 ATSC Integrated System is a self-contained multichannel headend processing system for the creation of ATSC multiplex broadcasts within a single rack unit platform. The platform includes MPEG-4 AVC compression for the Korean market and will also support ATSC-M/H mobile TV deployments in the US.

The AVP3000 for live acquisition is based on a hot-swappable modular architecture capable of supporting MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC and JPEG 2000 video compression over satellite and IP networks.
The AVP2000 contribution encoder for linear content exchange and distribution supports MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC and JPEG 2000, and will also support legacy network infrastructures including PDH/SDH.

Ericsson will also highlight its multiscreen video processing solution comprising its SPR1200 transcoder and NPR1200 for packaging and publishing linear multiscreen content.
