Adtec launches HD encoder/modulator

AUTHOR: Inavate

Adtec Digital has launched a high definition DSNG/contribution encoder/modulator, the new EN-91 includes DSNG, SD, HD and 3D contribution, distribution and fixed circuit trunking.

The EN-91 supports high definition and standard definition MPEG 4 AVC/H.264 video with 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 chroma sampling, boasting up to eight pairs of audio, TimeCode, Captions, Teletex and AFD features.

The EN-91 audio pass-through support includes PCM, DolbyE (16 and 20 Bit), Dolby AC3 (2.0 and 5.1). It supports redundant AC power supplies, enhanced control and monitoring via front-panel, SNMP and browser; and allows concurrent encoding and streaming to IP, ASI and L-Band or IF DVBS/S2. The DVBS/S2 modulator modes support QPSK up to 32APSK based on software licenses.

The EN-91, AVC 4:2:2 and RD-60 receiver can deliver HD-SDI with end-to-end delays of only 100 milliseconds with no dedicated fiber link needed like Motion JPEG. Both the EN-91 and RD-60 are fully interoperable with leading third-party receivers and encoders. Standards included are redundant power supplies, SNMP control and monitoring, an intuitive web control interface, and a push-button front panel interface.
