Harmonic to highlight new DiviCom Electra 8000 encoder

At the NAB Show, Harmonic will highlight the newly introduced the DiviCom Electra 8000 encoder/transcoder platform with support for MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) and MPEG-2 codecs in SD and HD up to full frame-rate 1080p 50/60.

Providing high-quality video in a dense, power-efficient form factor, the Electra 8000 is well-suited for virtually any service provider. Cable MSOs can deliver up to four HD MPEG-2 services in one QAM; satellite operators can increase channel count per transponder; telco IPTV service providers can improve reach with constant bit-rate HD video at 5Mb/s or less; and ATSC stations can implement a cost-effective “station-in-a-box” with integrated HD/SD statistical multiplexing and PSIP remultiplexing.

The Electra 8000’s native capability to decode and encode both MPEG-2 and AVC enables operators to accommodate both existing and future architectures using a single hardware platform.

See Harmonic at the NAB Show in Booth SU7209.
