Universal Multi-Service EncoderThe latest evolution of Harmonic’s market-leading Electra™ compression family, the Electra 9200 is a multichannel, multi-service encoder in a compact, energy-efficient 1-RU chassis. Part of a complete video headend solution, the encoder supports main and secondary SD or HD channels of constant bitrate (CBR) or variable bitrate (VBR) video using either MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 AVC encoding. It offers high bandwidth efficiency and channel density—up to four audio/video input processing modules per chassis.
