Recognizing a growing interest among European broadcasters and content delivery operators to deploy HD services, TANDBERG Television will launch a new HD MPEG-2 encoder, the E5780, and a new HD MPEG-2 receiver, the TT1280, at IBC2003.
The E5780 includes new capabilities for 4:2:2 encoding and full statistical multiplexing of HD and SD signals.
The new encoder and receiver offer HD content acquisition and distribution solutions, as well as HD transmission and reception capabilities for DTH and digital cinema services.
The E5780 includes new capabilities for 4:2:2 encoding and full statistical multiplexing of HD and SD signals. It is an ATSC/DVB compliant high-definition encoder built on the same platform as TANDBERG Television’s E5720 standard definition MPEG-2 encoder. This development path means that any E5720 SD encoder can easily become HD and that TV stations looking to upgrade to high- definition encoding retain their initial capital investments. Additionally, the E5780 offers video bit rates exceeding 80Mbps.
The TT1280 HD receiver/decoder provides end-to-end contribution quality HD programming to broadcasters for applications such as contribution feeds from outdoor broadcast events, mobile HD, ATSC network distribution feeds to affiliates and digital cinema applications.
