STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN and SAO PAULO, BRAZIL— Telefónica Vivo has chosen
Ericsson’s AVP 4000 encoders and has
begun trials to demonstrate the 4KTV in Brazil.
By addressing all applications, codecs, resolutions and profiles, Ericsson said its
AVP single platform eases integration, expansion, training, repair and
upgrades. It covers standard definition to HD 1080p50/60,
3DTV and UHDTV, and all codecs including MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC and JPEG
2000. Ericsson’s AVP 4000 compression platform is Ericsson’s
first ever in-house developed programmable video processing chip. The deal with
Telefónica Vivo represents the first deployment of the chip in the
Latin American market.
Ericsson predicts that by 2020, there will be 50 billion connected devices, 15
billion of which will be video-enabled. (Nothing further was said regarding 4K trials.)
