Ericsson Releases MPEG-4 Voyager 2 SNG Solution
Ericsson has unveiled its Voyager 2 scalable satellite newsgathering product to meet growing consumer demand for HD news services, the company announced.
Voyager 2, Ericsson’s fifth-generation DSNG product, is built upon a hot-swappable 1RU chassis with color input confidence monitoring and features MPEG-4 AVC 4:2:2 encoding with 10-bit precision at up to 1080p50/60 resolutions to the DSNG market. The product aims to allow users to scale their event coverage from SD to HD and even multichannel and 3-D, delivered across a multitude of satellite and terrestrial networks.
“In a dynamic and fast moving market, future DSNG solutions must reliably deliver high quality video in multiple formats over all modern transmission technologies and networks. It is vital that news services and organizations meet the needs and desires of today’s consumers to watch coverage in the highest possible quality, and also ensure they are equipped to provide the next generation experience, such as 3-D coverage. Voyager 2 delivers exactly that,” Ericsson Head of Technology Solutions Giles Wilson said in a statement.
