Ericsson E5720 MPEG-2 Standard Definition Encoder
The Ericsson E5720 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.
Achieving the best picture quality at the lowest bit-rate enables operators to broadcast more channels in their available bandwidth over digital cable, satellite and terrestrial networks - maximizing return on investment of this valuable resource. For broadband operators offering TV services over xDSL networks, achieving the lowest bit-rate can provide multiple simultaneous services into the home, or be used to extend the loop length over which TV services can be carried from the DSLAM to the consumer’s home - maximizing the return on network investment.
Ericsson has always led the market in providing encoding platforms that give optimum quality at the very lowest possible bit-rates. The E5720 is the result of over 15 years in-house experience of creating high performance real-time encoders.
E5720 Product Overview
Market Leading Performance
Extensive video pre-processing helps get the best picture, whatever the source. A proven history of providing customers with in-field performance improvements and feature upgrades, keeps our customers ahead of the market.
Appropriate for a Wide Range of Applications
The E5720 is easily adaptable to a wide range of professional applications that require top-level performance and functionality. The 2RU chassis allows up to 6 option cards to be fitted and supports a 12- key alphanumeric key pad, 8 hot keys and video input confidence monitor. Coupled with the low bit-rate performance, this makes it an ideal component in contribution and distribution applications, as well as multichannel solutions for broadband DSL/FTTH, cable, satellite or digital terrestrial.
Comprehensive Operational Options
The E5720 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 E5720 supports both RAS and BISS for secure contribution networks.
Reliable, Efficient Management
The E5720 can be remotely controlled via a web browser and can also be efficiently managed and maintained through integration into the nCompass Control System by Ericsson. This scalable system enables reliable, remote management and monitoring, reducing the need for costly, on-site operation.
