Benefits of Evertz ATSC Solution
Unparalleled Cost Reduction
The Evertz 3480TXE-ATSC encoder provides superior Video Quality with highest compression efficiency thereby enabling significant increase in the number of services of up to 2 HD and 4sD in a single ATSC channel. The TXE's flexible architecture utilizes both software and hardware acceleration making it possible to pack a complete channel in a single 1-RU resulting in unparalleled cost effectiveness that other solutions available in the market cannot match. The phenomenal bit rate savings and converged design results in huge savings in both capital (CAPEX) and operating expenditures (OPEX).
Scalable Model and Design
The media operations on the Evertz 3480TXE-ATSC encoder can be conveniently activated using discrete Channel Keys ensuring lowest costs and a scalable and efficient cost per need model. With changing needs, this also provides a convenient and modular expansion mechanism to add new features with a simple in-service channel key activation. The platform also supports H.264 Encoding for broadcast distribution encoding/transcoding and OTT applications.
The 3480TXE-ATSC Encoder is tightly integrated with the proven Evertz VistaLINK Pro Network Management Software and can be seamlessly integrated in your current infrastructure using simple SNMP controls. A supplementary simple and intuitive Web Interface is also available for operational convenience.
