Teracom HEVC-encoded Ultra-HD with Thomson

May 19, 2014

Sweden’s Teracom, a provider of technical infrastructure and network solutions for media distribution and communications, is using Thomson Video Networks’ award-winning VS7000 video system, NetProcessor 9030/40 multiplexer, and Sapphire MPEG stream server to demonstrate a complete transmission chain for DVB-T2 delivery of HEVC-encoded video. To enable delivery of Ultra-HD content that significantly improves the home viewing experience, Teracom has combined its DVB-T2 transmission capability with the exceptional HEVC compression efficiency enabled by the ViBE VS7000 and the DVB-T2 gateway processing provided by the NetProcessor multiplexer.

“By deploying state-of-the-art technology on our infrastructure to enable DVB-T2 transmission of HEVC-encoded Ultra HD content, we are demonstrating that we are capable of offering our customers the highest quality viewing experience,” said Håkan Axén, product manager at Teracom Group. “Thomson Video Networks products enable us to leverage HEVC to realise compression efficiencies of up to 50 per cent, which in turn makes it possible to broadcast Ultra-HD services to the home.”
