Advanced Modular Receiver
Broadcasters need to deploy receivers for many different tasks in many different operational circumstances. Ericsson’s RX8200 receiver offers ultimate operational flexibility by providing capability for decoding of all video formats and total connectivity for all transmission mediums. This level of functionality and operational flexibility makes the RX8200 perfectly suited to all Contribution and Distribution applications.
The RX8200 can be tailored to standard definition or high definition uses with MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 decode technology in both 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 modes as well as JPEG 2000 decode capability. Connectivity into the receiver is achieved with satellite, IP, ATM and ASI options.
The RX8200 Advanced Modular Receiver offers the user total connectivity through the capability to provide satellite, IP and ASI transport stream inputs, all within a single unit. With this flexibility the user is confident that their initial receiver investment is capable of adapting to a fast changing industry.
As a true multi-format decoder, the RX8200 can offer MPEG-4 AVC 4:2:0 High Definition decoding allowing broadcasters to reap the benefits from the 50% bit rate savings compared to MPEG-2; and with more and more contribution feeds also making a similar move from MPEG-2 to MPEG-4 AVC in the 4:2:2 world the RX8200 also meets those needs.
The RX8200 Advanced Modular Receiver has the capability to provide the ultimate feature-set of MPEG-4 HD, 4:2:2 10-bit 1080p50/60 allowing broadcasters to achieve the highest possible video quality.
The RX8200 also has the ability to enable compatibility for all broadcasters by deriving and outputting high quality 1080i, 720p or SD video from this reference format.
Broadcasters are increasingly demanding lowest latency for contribution and news applications. Ericsson offers the complete low latency suite of tools for the user – whether that be high quality JPEG 2000 decoding for contribution over fiber applications or low latency MPEG-4 4:2:2 and 4:2:0 decoding for satellite applications.
The Ericsson RX8200 Advanced Modular Receiver heads its class as an IRD offering the perfect balance of industry leading capability, flexibility and affordability.
The RX8200 Advanced Modular Receiver is available in Configuration Packs. Each Pack is specifically targeted at different applications and contains all relevant functionality for the intended purpose.
