Harmonic MPEG-2/MPEG-4 SD/HD AVC DSNG Encoder Ellipse 3000 (NEW)

Brand: Harmonic
Part number: Ellipse 3000

The industry’s best value for high-end Digital Satellite News Gathering (DSNG) and live sports broadcasting applications, the Harmonic Ellipse® 3000 family of contribution encoders combines superior video quality, the highest level of function integration and ease of use in an economical, compact package. The innovative product family includes the first DSNG encoder with an integrated broadcast satellite modulator that supports the DVB-S2X and DVB-CID standards.

Ellipse 3000 encoders leverage Harmonic's industry-leading compression expertise and a flexible system architecture for all mission-critical contribution applications. Multi-format, multi-codec versatility, low latency and optional integrated modulators make the Ellipse compression platform ideal for both DSNG and fixed contribution. A compact footprint and plug-and-play deployment deliver the additional benefit of low cost of ownership.

Ellipse 3000 encoders support all SD and HD MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC codecs at 4:2:0 or 4:2:2 chroma subsampling and 8 or 10 bits. Fully firmware upgradeable, the encoders offer a smooth and cost-effective migration path from MPEG-2 SD 4:2:0 8-bit to AVC HD 4:2:2 10-bit compression schemes, making them among the most versatile contribution encoders available. 3G SDI input enables encoding of HD content at resolutions up to 1080p60. Options for remultiplexing and cascading allow the devices to operate on a stand-alone basis with no need for external multiplexers or PSI generators.

At just 1 RU, compact and rugged Ellipse 3000 encoders are a perfect fit for DSNG vehicles, teleports and flyaway packages operating on the C, Ku or Ka bands. Four models are available, assuring the deployment of systems precisely tailored to a user’s application:
