LAS VEGAS, April 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The remarkably compact Telairity SES3200 Video Encoding System, able to generate up to 32 channels of video and 128 channels of audio in a single, completely modular chassis, was unveiled today by Telairity, Inc., a global leader in encoding technology, at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) convention and exhibit.
"Companies distributing video are constantly looking for equipment that provides state of the art, low bit rate encoding capability that can scale for channel count, channel type and future technology upgrades," said Telairity President Rich Dickson. "Multiple encoding formats usually means multiple encoder boxes, and a greater investment in equipment. Our new SES3200 eliminates that need, providing both a low entry price and a low total cost of ownership for the future."
Telairity is showcasing the SES3200 unit at its NAB booth: SU9117, located in South Hall, upper floor, of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The new SES3200 encoder is based on Telairity's proprietary Telairity-1™ scalable video processing architecture, which provides efficient IP distribution and transmission of ultra high quality video at very low bit rates: essential technology for today's mobile, DVB and IPTV service providers.
A completely self-contained "head-end system in a box," the SES3200's small footprint and scalability are essential to efficient facility planning and design requirements. By building the SES3200 around the industry-standard ATCA chassis with full fabric switching, the new system entirely eliminates the need for separate cables, switches, routers, and multiplexers.
This unique design of 32 channels in a single chassis, make this encoder the most dense, and economical encoder in the marketplace, all while providing the highest quality video compression in the industry.
Input modules support 8 connections each. Sources may be either SD or HD (1080i or 1080p). Modules either are or shortly will be available for SDI, ASI, composite, and IP input formats.
A transcoding option is also available, allowing multi-program transport streams (MPTS) as inputs over ASI or Gig-E connections, for instant transcoding to today's most advanced video codecs, including H.264/AVC (MPEG-4) and AVS.
Each encoder module supports four channels of video, with four audio channels per video channel. Output modules combine all encoded channels into a multi-program transport stream. For bullet-proof on-air reliability, redundancy configurations from a minimum 7+1 to 31+1 configuration to full dual redundancy and beyond may be specified.
Additional options include frame controller cards and power supply modules. Upgrades are easy since the entire chassis and all cards are hot-swappable, with its front loaded card assemblies.
The SES3200 is available for order now. Lead time will depend on the specific options needed. Visit www.telairity.com for additional details about this system, or call Telairity for pricing.
