Tandberg E5500 MPEG2 Encoder DSNG (USED)

Brand: Tandberg (Ericsson)
Part number: E5500

The Tandberg E5500 MPEG2 DSNG Encoder provides all the functionality required for a multitude of Outside Broadcast  (OB) applications. Based on the latest technology platform the E5500 utilises the very best field proven encoding and pre-processing delivering a truly unbeatable feature set.

The compact 2RU design includes an MPEG-2 4:2:0MP@ML encoding engine at its heart with can be optionally upgraded to MPEG-2 4:2:2P@ML. Accepting either an SDI or Composite input the E5500’s leading edge encoding will produce a delay figure of less than 200ms ensuring the very best minimum system latency. Data insertion is also catered for via either the High Speed RS-422 or Low Speed RS-232 Data ports.

Built in frequency agile QPSK modulation provides a tuneable IF of 50-90Mhz in 125Khz increments with a maximum symbol rate of 30m/sym per second. The E5500 also accepts the new Tandberg re-multiplexer module for multi-channel applications. The re-multiplexer module is available as an optional extra, when fitted the E5500 will be able to accept up to 3 additional ASI transport streams, providing a compact, lightweight and easy to use 4 channel MPTS system.

History of Tandberg

Norwegian based Tandberg was founded by Vebjorn Tandberg as Tandbergs Radiofabrikk (Tandberg's radio factory) in Oslo in 1933. During the early years, radios, loudspeakers and microphones were the main output from the factory. The company's first radio was named "Tommeliten", and used only earphones. In 1934 the first "Huldra" radio was launched, followed in 1936 by the "Sølvsuper". The Sølvsuper and the Huldra radios became the foundation for Tandberg's success.

The factory also started producing TV sets in the 60’s and color TV's were added to Tandberg’s lineup in 1969. In 1972 Tandberg purchased Radionette, another large Norwegian electronics firm that was focused on televisions. By 1976, TV's were Tandberg's major product and their factories employed 3,500 workers. In that same year the company was seriously affected by a major economic downturn and by 1978 it was insolvent. Vebjorn Tandberg was removed from control of the company and committed suicide in August. In December the company declared bankruptcy.

In the aftermath of the bankruptcy the original Tandberg was split into three parts. The television manufacturing portions became Tandberg Television, Tandberg Data took over the tape recording side of the company and moved it purely into the computer storage field and the remaining portions lost the "Radiofabrikk" to become, simply, Tandberg.

In April 2007, Tandberg Television was acquired by Ericsson. Tandberg Television operated as an independent entity within the Ericsson Business Unit Multimedia until January 25, 2010, when its name was changed to Ericsson Television, Ltd.
