The 7882ENC-H264HD-IPASI has been designed to deliver "best in breed" video and audio compression technology to lead the contribution market space, offering the very best video quality, latency and bandwidth utilization.

This flexible architecture offers both MPEG-2 and H.264 (MPEG-4 Part 10) user configurable video compression at up to 10-Bit 4:2:2 resolution. Concurrently, with latencies as low as 215ms end to end, the 7882ENC becomes an ideal compression solution for low latency contribution requirements.

The 7882ENC supports audio encoding of up to 16 embedded channels using a wide variety of audio compression cores including, but not limited to, MPEG1L2, Dolby-E/AC-3, AAC and audio pass-through.

The 7882ENC includes a dedicated control port that offers a built-in web server for quick and easy configuration, including true SNMP control from the award winning VistaLINK NMS when paired with a frame controller. For those mission critical applications, the 7882ENC can be intelligently managed using the Evertz Compression Systems Manager (CSM) software which offers complete provisioning, monitoring and redundancy management of the contribution compression head end.

As a base model, the 7882ENC must be purchased with a choice of Channel Key to unlock a desired level of chroma encoding. The 7882ENC is fully feature upgradable in the field, allowing for a cost-effective migration up to a fully optioned platform capable of 422 10b with ASI and IP out. The 7882ENC offers the best performance and versatility available from a world class contribution encoder.
