Ericsson AVP 3000 Family

    Voyager Satellite Newsgathering

    Live content is key to delivering broadcast advertising and sponsorship revenue in today's multi-channel, multi-platform world.  The new AVP 3000 Voyager by Ericsson is the latest incarnation of the market leading Voyager product for live news, sports and entertainment, delivering multi-codec, multi-format and multi-channel operations.

    Product Description

    Mobile TV demands products which are operationally flexible, straight forward to use, and robust enough to handle a demanding environment.  AVP 3000 Voyager is Ericsson's sixth-generation DSNG encoder and builds on over 15 years of technology leadership in Mobile Television.

    SD, HD and 3D operation are all supported, and a choice of codecs including MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC and JPEG 2000 with full support for Ericsson Patent Pending Phase Aligned Audio.  An integrated satellite modulator offers high order DVB-S/S2 and DVB-S2X modulation on both IF and L-Band outputs. HD can be sent at high quality over fiber links. The AVP 3000 Voyager features a fully functional front panel to meet the demand of the mobile environment, inclusing ease of operations, quick menu access, and effective monitoring. Additional FPGA, flash and memory resources offer increased horsepower to deal with current and future operational needs.

    The space saving 1RU form factor is ideal for mobile applications. Up to five hot swappable option slots offer MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC and JPEG 2000 eliminating wasteful downtime and allowing 24x7x365 operation. The ability to provide MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC and JPEG 2000 news and sports from a single compact product offers truck operators space savings, lower purchase costs, simpler operation and lower support costs.

    DVB-CID Support
    DVB-CID allows the source of a satellite transmission to be easily identified, making it easier to resolve any signal interference problems. It does this by embedding a unique identification code on to the transmitted carrier.
    The WBU-ISOG passed a resolution that by 1 January 2015 all new modulators purchased for video up-linking should support DVB-CID, and that by 1 January 2018 all transmissions shall use DVB-CID.
    All Ericsson AVP 3000 Voyager units support DVB-CID.

    CE-x Series Option Modules
    The CE-x Series encoding modules represent the best choice for the highest quality video contribution.  Built on in-house technology, they are optimized for the video, audio and data requirements specific to this segment.  All modules are based on the same future-proof, software-upgradeable platform.  This enables support for features such as 10-bit, 1080p50/59.94 and 3D.

    CE-xA Series Option Modules
    The CE-xA series is the same as the CE-x series above, but also provides Analog CVBS video and 2 stereo pairs of analog audio inputs for legacy connectivity as well as conventional HD-SDI and AES/EBU.

    CE-a Series Option Modules
    The CE-a Series encoding modules offer high density with up to five hot swappable modules within a single AVP 3000 Voyager chassis, which enables functionality to be easily changed or upgraded.

    CE-aJ2K Series Option Modules
    New JPEG 2000 option allows low latency, high quality HD contribution over low cost fiber Ethernet links.  This additional codec options gives the Contribution Encoder the widest choice of compression technologies on the market, allowing operators to further enhance the overall usability of this unit and maximize productivity.
