Contribution Encoders

Kyrion Modular Encoder

The Kyrion CM5000 is a modular Hardware encoding platform dedicated to contribution over satellite and IP / ASI networks.

The Kyrion CM5000 modular platform can be mounted as a single channel or dual channels encoder or single channel encoder plus built-in DVB-S/S2 modulator. With three extension slots, the Kyrion CM5000 can match exact requirements with optional audio boards for analog or digital inputs. The Kyrion CM5000 Dual channel encoder comes with different feature set packages offering a wide range of options to match multiple contribution use cases.

The Kyrion CM5000 delivers all MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC flavors: from Standard Definition to High Definition 1080p50/60 and from 4:2:0 8-bit up to 4:2:2 10-bit with unrivaled video quality and robustness over IP, ASI or RF Networks.

The Kyrion CM5000 features clear and complete front panel and web interfaces that meet all operational expectations with quick access to configuration menus and immediate settings ensuring a fast transmission start.

Based on ATEME ‘s unique FPGA design, the Kyrion CM5000 permits a complete upgradeability, providing the broadcasters, satellite up-links, service operators, and the DSNG Users to benefit from the state-of-art of video compression techniques.

HEVC and Broadcast Content

High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) is a new video compression format that effectively doubles the data compression rate compared to H.264/MPEG-4 AVC at the same level of video quality.
HEVC will be used first in applications where bandwidth is a problem today, where the client device can easily be updated to support HEVC, either because it is a device that users replace frequently, such as smartphones, or because it is flexible to support HEVC. Contribution applications will come later, and require more robust complex implementations of the standard than what can be offered by compression vendors at this time.HEVC has been found to be a very efficient codec for all content types including interlaced content; if you think otherwise, this paper will help you understand where the misconception that HEVC is only for progressive was initiated.
