NAB 2012: Ericsson Addresses Increase in HD Sports Contribution and Backhaul

Ericsson will be showing new multi-codec versions of its Voyager DSNG and Contribution Encoding platforms, offering MPEG-2, MPEG-4, and JPEG 2000 in the same product, and SD, HD and 1080p workflows.

In fixed contribution, combining all three compression technologies in a single product line maximizes operational flexibility, reduces engineering and operational staff training costs, and simplifies both initial installation and also long term support, compared to a ‘mix and match’ multi vendor environment.

In DSNG, truck operators can now roll to event and use just one encoding platform for either Satellite or IP based contribution. That simplifies scheduling, saves rack space, and means only one system for operators to learn and only one technology for engineers to maintain, which translates to better services and improved ROI.
