Harmonic to highlight DiviCom Electra 8000
Harmonic will feature the DiviCom Electra 8000 universal SD/HD encoder at IBC2009.
The DiviCom Electra 8000 encoding and transcoding platform supports MPEG-4 AVC H.264 and MPEG-2 codecs in SD and HD formats, up to full frame-rate 1080p 50/60.
Providing high-quality video in a dense and power-efficient form factor — four channels per rack unit and using 40 percent less power than the industry average — the Electra 8000 is designed to meet the needs of cable MSOs, satellite operators, telcos and broadcasters.
The company also will showcase the ProView 7000 integrated receiver stream-processing platform — a scalable video receiver, DVB descrambler, multiformat decoder and MPEG stream processor in a single rack unit.
