Ericsson RX1290 Multi-format SD/HD IRD

Being capable of HD and SD decoding in both MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC formats, the Ericsson RX1290 Multi-Format Receiver offers the ultimate receive device to help the migration from today's standard definition broadcast environment to tomorrow's HD capable network.

Product Description

Video professionals, broadcasters and news gathering organizations face increasing demands to capture and deliver video in multiple formats and standards while minimizing their operational costs. As television moves from MPEG-2 to MPEG-4 AVC, from standard definition (SD) to high definition (HD), Ericsson’s RX1290 is uniquely positioned to address these multi-format, multi-standard needs by combining MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC, SD and HD with the capability to decode both 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 video.

The RX1290’s capability to decode all video formats, coupled with a wide choice of input options for all transmission mediums makes the receiver the smart choice for professionals seeking a future-proof solution. This unique flexibility makes the RX1290 the only full MPEG-4 AVC HD solution for mobile applications. The RX1290 provides significant benefits for organizations who wish to migrate their operations from MPEG-2 SD to MPEG-4 AVC HD. The multi-format capability of the RX1290 allows a significant cost reduction to the traditional migration path of operating separate devices for SD and HD. With the RX1290, customers can upgrade the unit with licenses rather than migrating via a hardware upgrade path thereby giving maximum flexibility.
