Turner Entertainment Networks has selected Radyne ComStream’s newest HDTV encoder technology for NBA coverage.
Turner has ordered Radyne's HE4000 video encoder with a built-in satellite modulator to provide simultaneous HD and SD video compression and transmission capability for its digital sports broadcasts.
The HE4000 combines HD and SD encoding with a DVB S2 internal modulator. The HE4000 also has a built-in monitor on the front panel reducing the need for an additional receiver and monitor.
The encoder can be configured for ultra high-quality HD encoding, using Radyne ComStream's PurePEG HD Technology, featuring video pre-processing and two-pass encoding.
