System EncodersYour best option for ATSC system in a box

The AVP 4000 ATSC Integrated System is a focused configuration of AVP, providing a cost effective flexible implementation in support of ATSC Broadcast Operators by combining encoding and statistical multiplexing functionality into a single 1 RU platform. Initial installation is straight forward, requiring no specialist integration knowledge. Subsequent operation is simple, via an ergonomic Web User interface, which is designed for simplicity and ease of use

Industry leading MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC encoding with integrated Reflex statistical multiplexing and PSIP Carouselling.
- Compact 1 RU form factor
- TV monitor gives instant input service status
- Choice of configurations for HD and SD
- Built on the new Ericsson AVP platform, with modular architecture, allowing for equipment re-use, onsite upgrades and servicing.

The Ericsson AVP ‘one platform’ approach represents a modern approach to encoding product design. In a nutshell, the five key benefits of AVP are:

•Improved picture quality
Whether you need to get more SD channels in the same bandwidth, add more HD channels or improve picture quality, AVP offers immediate revenue opportunities and/ or cash savings.

•Upgrade codecs and resolutions via software
As business requirements change, AVP can adapt without the need for complex hardware changes. That simplifies upgrades and redeployments.
•One platform – multiple applications.
Many media operations have differing encoding requirements within the organization. Standardizing on a single platform cuts costs of integration, training and support. What’s more, spare encoder capacity can be redeployed into new applications.

•Maximized productive ‘up’ time
Hot swap operation minimizes unproductive service intervals, dual power supply protects services and an onboard monitor gives instant feedback of critical services.

•Maximized useful life.
In the media industry, the speed of change is increasing. New requirements and workflows are emerging. That’s why its important not to put unnecessary constraints on products. For example limiting a product to 8 bit operation, or 4:2:0 or a single codec, or a single workflow, may satisfy today’s immediate requirements but maybe not tomorrow’s. With AVP, there are no such restrictions, as 10 bit, 4:2:2, JPEG 2000, 3DTV and 1080P 50/60 are available today with an upgrade path to UHDTV.
