Our ViBE SD MPEG-2/MPEG-4 AVC encoder establishes a new benchmark for SD encoding, and is perfect for satellite and terrestrial broadcast applications, high-end IPTV operations, and other kinds of content aggregation.
Combining compression efficiency features and the latest pre processing techniques, it delivers clearer pictures with increased depth and clarity. As a result, you can distribute video across all networks in a way that sustains the viability of your business model—and lets your customers enjoy a premium viewing experience.
This encoder line can be configured as single-channel or multi-channel units, where the latter offers the advantage of both a reduced footprint and lower power consumption per channel. Each channel can be independently configured for MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 encoding, extending the possibilities for hybrid applications. Both encoders tap the Dolby Digital and AAC audio compression formats and support up to eight stereo pairs of audio.
