Ericsson AVP 4000 Family

    System Encoders

    Deliver unrivalled SD and HD picture quality in MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC with an upgrade path to 4K UHDTV with the AVP 4000 System encoder, powered by Ericsson's first in-house programmable video chip.

    AVP 4000 System Encoders Overview

    Demand for higher quality video in such formats as MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC is growing, along with the need for greater content choice and accessibility on all devices, yet all of this is happening within the constraints of legacy bandwidth systems and operating expenses.  As operators face the most competitive landscape yet, it is critical to have services which address the growth of TV Anywhere, the continued transition from standard definition to high definition and 4K UHDTV, and the unprecedented amount of available content.

    Ericsson AVP 4000 System Encoders respond to the high quality system encoding requirements of IPTV, cable, satellite and broadcast operators.  They provide the highest performance and broadcast capability in the industry on a single platform.  That means faster service deployment, reduced cost of ownership and multiple applications for all codecs, resolutions and profiles, enabling deeper customer engagement and responsiveness to market needs.
