— Earlier today, Harmonic released the Ellipse 3000 contribution encoder that uses MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC 4:2:0/4:2:2 8- and10-bit compression technologies to transmit real-time video over satellite and broadband networks. To help ensure universal compatibility, Harmonic says the Ellipse 3000 supports DVB-S, DVB-DSNG and DVB-S2 modulation schemes, and it provides QPSK/8PSK/16QAM/16APSK constellation support. Simultaneous L-band, IP and DVB-ASI outputs assure reliability by providing alternate distribution channels in the event of link failure. The encoder is expected to ship in June.
