Ericsson EN8040 MPEG-4 Voyager News GatheringThe EN8040 is the world's most integrated DSNG solution providing ultimate flexibility with multi-codec support, a built-in DVB-S2 satellite modulator and numerous feature-enhancing options.

Product Description

The EN8040 provides a multi-format encoding platform combined with an advanced satellite modulator. This provides the ultimate picture quality at the lowest bit-rates and transponder bandwidth and with new improved low latency modes.

For flexibility, the EN8040 can offer MPEG-2 SD, MPEG-4 AVC SD and MPEG-4 AVC HD video encoding in the same box. The MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC encoders can be used simultaneously and support low latency modes for delay-critical applications. BISS, RAS and DVB-S2 QPSK/8PSK/16APSK are simple license key enabled options. Additional hardware options include a COFDM modulator, a dual Gigabit Ethernet card with SMPTE 2022 support and an Advanced Audio Option card. A new remux card has been introduced accepting up to three external SCPC or MCPC transport streams. Most customers can upgrade their existing DSNG equipment (either E574x or E578x products) to the EN8040.
