Thomson Video Announces Headend India Range

News Image
Thomson Video Networks has announced a new range of headend solutions to meet the requirements of cable operators in India.
Each solution is designed to provide the appropriate level of encoding for a particular channel format.
For SD content and channels available only through broadcasters' proprietary STB set-top boxes (STBs), Thomson Video Networks is offering its ViBE™ VS7000 and ViBE EM1000 encoders.
For HD channels and hybrid operators, the headend solution includes the market-leading ViBE EM4000 multichannel encoder.
"Cable operators in India face a major challenge in the coming months as they respond to the mandatory digitalisation legislation enacted by the Indian government. The transition from analog to digital broadcasting has both technological and financial implications," said Shimon Shanor, VP of sales for strategic markets at Thomson Video Networks.
"Our extensive experience in the Indian cable and broadcast markets has given us specific familiarity with the country's channel characteristics and cable requirements. We've put this expertise to work designing solutions to help our Indian cable customers with this challenging transition."
Thomson Video Networks' ViBE EM1000 is the ideal solution for encoding analog audio and video inputs in either MPEG-2 or MPEG-4.
For SD content and channels offered through broadcasters' proprietary STBs, the ViBE VS7000 allows transcoding of long-tail services and can be also expanded for multi-screen video delivery through software licenses.
For HD channels and hybrid operations, the market-leading ViBE EM4000 multi-channel encoder enables advanced features such as HD/3D encoding and dual parallel output.
Housed in a 1-RU chassis, the ViBE EM4000 can encode up to eight channels in H.264 and HD.
All encoders support statistical multiplexing for optimal bandwidth management, as well as automatic loudness control on all types of audio (stereo or surround, MPEG-1 Layer II, Dolby®, or AAC) to comply with international standards.
