Tandberg EN8040 MPEG4 HD Encoder DSNG (DVB-S2, built-in IF Mod, 16APSK, BISS etc)

: Tandberg (Ericsson)
Part number: EN8040

The EN8040 is TANDBERG Television’s second-generation AVC multi-format DSNG. It is a “flagship” product that reflects TANDBERG Television’s technology leadership and unique ability to create products of the very highest class. Unmatched in so many areas, the EN8040 excels whether you are considering its features, performance or the multiple upgrade paths that we offer for upgrading existing equipment to this exemplary standard.

The EN8040 is multi-standard and multi-format. Its hardware has the ability to support a variety of advanced encoding schemes as well as DVB-S2 modulation. This combination allows considerable bandwidth savings that can equate to transmitting high-quality HD within transponder bandwidths typically used for SD today. The benefits extend to far more than simply minimizing the transponder costs for HD, and includes the prevention of expensive upgrades to the truck’s transmission infrastructure, the ability to use compact, power-limited fly-away antennas robustly for SD or HD, and even the ability to also use the EN8040 for terrestrial microwave (DENG) applications, where SD standards of radio-link range and robustness can be achieved with HD.

Since the EN8040 has been designed to bring the benefits of H.264-AVC encoding to professional contribution and distribution applications, particular attention has been paid to end-to-end latency. We can offer very low latency modes for the encoder which are complimented by an optional low latency mode for the RX1290 decoder.

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.
