The HE4000 SD uses advanced technology to offer standard definition video encoding. The HE4000's highly flexible
design architecture enables custom configurations to suit any encoding requirement. The
HE4000 can be ordered with a complete set of the most advanced features available today
or ordered in a cost effective minimal configuration. Most advanced features are available
as factory or field software upgrades.
HE4000 SD Highlights
Low Cost Initial Investment
Factory Upgradeable to MPEG-2 HD,
MPEG-4 HD or SD Encoding
SMPTE-310M and ASI Output Standard
Built-In Frame Sync
Complete Front Panel Configuration &
In its minimal configuration, the HE4000 be ordered as a standard definition encoder and be
factory upgraded for high-definition encoding applications.
The HE4000 can be equipped with an advanced satellite modulator making it the ideal
encoder for both contribution as well as distribution. The HE4000 can be configured to
eliminate the need for an external network interface by offering numerous data interface
options including E3, DS-3, STS-1 and others. The HE4000 includes front panel video and
audio confidence monitors providing verification of input sources.
The flexible architecture of the HE4000 allows for a future proof upgrade path to H.264
Part 10 and other advanced encoding standards.
The HE4000SD can be upgraded to any of Tiernan's industry leading 2RU encoding
platforms. Upgrades to HE4000 (MPEG-2 HD), AVC4000HS (MPEG-4 HD) or AVC4000SD
(MPEG-2 SD) are available.
The HE4000 SD can be factory upgraded for ultra high-quality high-definition encoding,
using PurePEG HD Technology which features an innovative combination of
video pre-processing and two-pass encoding for the highest picture quality. PurePEG HD
Technology provides for improved picture quality, especially at lower HD bit rates. An
auxiliary transport stream input provides for PSI/SI/PSIP tables to be multiplexed into the
output transport stream. Additionally, an option module will allow for the input transport
stream to contain programs and/or components to be multiplexed with the transport
stream generated internal to the HE4000.
The HE4000 has an embedded Web Browser Interface to allow for easy command and
control programming. It also offers the options of RS-232 proprietary command line M&C,
M&C over Telnet or via SNMP. Full local front panel control is standard.
