Harmonic’s new Electra 9000 multicodec, multiformat video encoder simultaneously supports broadcast, mobile, and Web formats in a 1-RU chassis for broadcast, satellite, telco, and cable operators.

A priority for Harmonic was to incorporate Web and mobile support into the Electra platform without compromising quality or reducing the Electra’s broadcast feature set. Operators benefit from a streamlined headend operation, with several critical functions for broadcast, mobile and Web video brought together in a single platform.

The Electra 9000 encoder delivers HD and SD video services using Harmonic’s MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) and MPEG-2 compression algorithms, and combines the company’s broadcast capabilities with the ability to support emerging multi-screen applications. The Electra 9000 maximizes bandwidth efficiency and channel density by providing up to four audio/video processing modules per chassis. Each module supports flexible combinations of up to four SD/HD inputs, with up to eight broadcast output profiles and 32 multi-screen aligned output profiles.
