Scopus To Debut New Encoders at IBC

Several new compact encoders will be shown at Scopus Network Technologies' booth (Stand 1.239) at IBC in September.

The E-1200 1 RU MPEG-2 DVB encoder features Scopus' "Look Ahead" algorithm, utilizing pre-processing and complexity estimation techniques. The E-1200 supports Scopus' "TriplePass" three-step parallel method to ensure the best encoding and multiplexing in a multi-encoder system. The first two encoding passes are done in a single encoder environment and the third pass is conducted in a multi-encoder environment.

Announced at NAB and making its European debut is Scopus' CODICO E-1510MPEG-2 exciter targeting mobile news vehicle operations. Engineered to fit the requirements of satellite mobile contribution networks, the E-1510 integrates both encoding and modulating capabilities with an upconverter in a 2-RU chassis. The E-1510 exciter is based on a 4:2:0/4:2:2 encoder, 10/140 MHz modulator and an L/Ku upconverter unit.

Also making its debut at IBC is the E-1710, a compact, 1-RU system that combines encoding and modulation to maximize space utilization. It features L-band monitoring and both satellite and QPSK/8PSK/16QAM/COFDM modulation schemes to ensure picture quality and low power consumption.

Scopus will also highlight its concept for video networking, the Intelligent Video Gateway (IVG), announced at NAB in April. The video routing and processing platforms were developed to enable cable operators in featuring video, voice and data applications to customers. Each IVG platform is a scalable head-end-in-a-box located at the master head-end and housed in a 1-RU chassis.
