Ericsson chosen for DishTV upgrade

Ericsson is enabling DishTV, India's largest direct-to-home satellite operator, to improve its satellite bandwidth efficiency, increase channel capacity and offer more choice to its subscribers in HD and SD. The head-end upgrade enables DishTV's 7 million subscribers to enjoy new HD services. Viewers can also access new SD channels without the need to swap existing MPEG-2 STBs.

DishTV has selected Ericsson's high performance EN8100 MPEG-2 and EN8190 MPEG-4 AVC encoders, and is launching a combined SD MPEG-2 and HD MPEG-4 AVC system in the same transponder space. The EN8100 and EN8190 optimise bitrates and deliver greater performance to strengthen DishTV's business case by maximising current bandwidth capacity.
