Ericsson E5710 MPEG-2 Standard Definition Encoder
The Ericsson E5710 has been designated "End of Life" by the manufacturer and is no longer available for purchase. Please see the Ericsson AVP3000 Voyager DSNG Encoder or Contact Us for more information.
MPEG-2-based digital video headends continue to be a critical part of the encoding landscape for terrestrial, telco, satellite and digital cable service providers. The ability to obtain excellent picture quality at low bitrates remains the most important performance factor for encoders and is a hallmark of Ericsson's E5710 MPEG-2 encoder. The E5710 is ideal for real-time broadcastquality encoding, digital video turnaround and efficient video delivery over any last-mile network.
The E5710 is a highly reliable and adaptable MPEG-2 encoding platform with an extremely flexible backplane, enabling many options for audio encoding, re-multiplexing and multiple output formats. For service providers with sufficient bandwidth who want to rely on MPEG-2's outstanding performance and long development history for their television services, the E5710 is the industry gold standard for MPEG-2 encoding, with a myriad of feature upgrades, software licensing options and performance enhancements available.
Outstanding Quality and Market Leading Performance
The E5710 MPEG-2 encoder provides extensive video pre-processing features developed by Ericsson's world class in-house encoding laboratory in which customers can optimize encoding performance for their specific needs. The E5710's top performance record, combined with multiple options suitable for a wide range of professional video applications, provide a level of quality and flexibility that is unmatched by the competition.
Upgradeable Hardware and Software Future-proofs Investment
The E5710 features two expansion slots for upgradeable hardware options. These options include MPEG-2 multi-pass encoding or upgrades to MPEG-4 AVC SD and HD encoding with Ericsson's Intelligent Compression Engine (ICE) version 3, as well as software options that enable a wide variety of different applications. Service providers are not locked-in to legacy technology or single purpose devices as their needs and services change.
Comprehensive Operational Options
The E5710 offers breadth and depth in operational capabilities including Variable Bit-Rate (VBR) and Constant Bit-Rate (CBR) modes, Reflex™ statistical multiplexing and audio capabilities allowing operators to design their ideal encoding system and maximize their bandwidth capacity. For content protection, the E5710 supports both RAS and BISS for secure contribution networks.
Reliable, Efficient Management
The E5710 can be remotely controlled via a web browser and can also be efficiently managed and maintained through integration into Ericsson's nCompass control system. This scalable system enables reliable, remote management and monitoring, reducing the need for costly, on-site operation.
