The Ericsson E5714 Voyager DSNG Encoder has been designated End of Life (EOL) by the manufacturer
Here is a small selection of possible replacement units.
E5714 Base Unit Features
E5714 IF output (M2/VOY/E5714-IF)
E5714 L-Band output (M2/VOY/E5714-LBAND)
The E5714 offers the most advanced MPEG encoding and modulation
system ever seen in a space saving 1RU package. With optional 4:2:2,
RAS/BISS, and two stereo audio pairs as standard with the ability to
handle pass-through encoding of Dolby® 5.1, E, and DTS, the DSNG
credentials of the E5714 are excellent. Built on top of this are even more
advanced features such as the ability to remotely control an HPA from the
web interface or front panel.
The DVB-S modulator provides either an L-band output or 70 MHz
IF output. The correct card must be specified at time of ordering. The Lband
modulator card has DVB-S/DVB-S2 hardware capability as standard.
An 18-36 volt DC power option is available for special order.
Ericsson's E5714 Voyager DSNG Encoder is an advanced, high-quality MPEG-2 encoder with an integrated IF or L-Band modulator option with exceptional video processing capabilities. Broadcast and satellite news gathering organizations are seeking efficiencies in their operations like never before as airline weight limits and truck sizes continue to shrink while performance and costcutting demands increase. The E5714 is highlyversatile and compact (1RU), providing an ideal solution for space-constrained trucks and for deployment in a variety of outside broadcast applications, from low data rate flyaways to high bandwidth multi-channel SNG trucks. Ericsson provides a choice of modulator options, allowing the E5714 to be applied to DSNG applications that interface at either L-band or 70MHz IF outputs.
The MPEG-2 encoder's superb performance is based on Ericsson's award-winning compression platform. The E5714 offers an optional 4:2:2 capability, making it ideal for fast-action sports as well as low bitrate news gathering operations, with stunning video quality at less than 2 Mbit/s. The E5714 Voyager is a smart choice for broadcasters seeking increased efficiencies in operations and cost to stay competitive while delivering outstanding picture quality to customers.
E5714 Sample configuration
Compact, High Performance Solution
The E5714 is an extremely powerful, high-end encoder and modulator in a
1RU chassis, fitting easily into small trucks and space-constrained rack
environments. It delivers world-class MPEG-2 encoding at extremely low
bit-rates for an affordable price. Ericsson’s eighteen-years of in-house
encoding development experience are featured in the E5714, which has
extensive video-processing capabilities to clean the video stream and
deliver exceptional picture quality, including advanced noise reduction and
auto concatenation features. The E5714 also includes an array of highperformance
audio options including Dolby® AC3 two channel encoding
and DTS sound.
The E5714 adapts easily to a wide range of satellite news gathering
applications that require top-level performance, with a variety of qualityenhancing
options and transport outputs. The IF output version has one
option slot that can support a variety of option cards, including a
re-multiplexer (REMUX) for multi-channel contribution or telco/IP outputs
for simultaneous contribution over satellite or telco/networks. Video
encoding performance upgrades are available that increase the efficiency
by at least 0.8 Mbps per channel and lower the video bit-rate limit to 256
Unrivalled Manufacturers Support
Should it be necessary to return a unit for service during the warranty
period, Ericsson has a unique Advance Loan Scheme with committed
spare units held in central stock to restore customer operations as quickly
as possible. The E5714 platform comes with a standard two-year warranty
that together with the Advance Loan Scheme offers unrivalled support.
DVB-S2 Capability (L-Band Version only) Provides Major Bandwidth Savings
DVB-S2 offers up to a 35% improvement in transmission efficiency compared to DVB-S. DVB-S2
is a modem technology so the benefits are in addition to savings offered by Ericsson's premium
encoding technology. The E5714 L-Band comes with a DVB-S2 capable modulator a standard which
can be activated via licence key to enable its advanced features.
Audio Option Card (M2/EOM2/AUDLIN2) – supported on
Two stereo pairs supported per card
MPEG Layer II audio encoding
Dolby® Digital (AC-3) encoding
Dolby® Digital (AC-3) 1 - 5.1 channel and Dolby®E pass-through
Linear PCM and DTS pass-through
One additional audio option card may be fitted supporting a total of
four stereo pairs in the unit

UDP/IP or RTP/UDP/IP encapsulation of MPEG-2 transport stream
100/1000BaseT Ethernet physical interface
Multicast or unicast capable
Supports multiple SPTS streams
REMUX (M2/EOM2/REMUX) – supported on E5714-IF only
The REMUX card will re-multiplex three external transport streams
with the locally generated stream. The card supports automatic PID
re-mapping and resolves service name conflicts. The REMUX card
also supports the insertion of externally generated dynamic PSIP
into the transport stream.
BISS Scrambler Card (M2/EDCOM2/BISS)
BISS (Basic Interoperable Scrambling System) for secure
contribution links. Allows material to be protected from unwanted
viewing using the BISS open standard. Supports BISS Modes 0, 1
and Mode E for encrypted session words (as defined in EBU Tech
3292 May 2002). This option is a daughter card and so does not
occupy an option slot.
Note: E5714 L-band units have been shipping with standard DVB-S2
capable hardware since 01.01.2006. Note: E5714 is capable of controlling a high power amplifier from the
front panel or web interface. Please contact Ericsson for further
information and a list of supported HPA devices.
