Ericsson on Friday announced implementation of a new end-to-end primary distribution system for Televisa, Mexico's leading broadcaster and content provider.
The system selected by Televisa features Ericsson's AVP Encoder with the latest HEVC compression module, the MX8400 Multiplexer and many RX8200 HEVC receivers with integrated DVB-S2X de-modulator.
By deploying both DVB-S2X and HEVC, Televisa can increase the number
of high definition services it distributes while maintaining the best picture quality and without requiring additional bandwidth.
It has also selected Ericsson's system management platform nCompass Director, which features conditional access and software download capabilities to offer a more flexible approach to managing and protecting content delivered to its affiliates.
This new primary distribution system enables Televisa to efficiently deliver content to ATSC stations distributed throughout Mexico.
"This new agreement is the next milestone in our long-standing relationship with Televisa. Ericsson's latest portfolio incorporating HEVC HD compression technology and DVB-S2X transmission technology will play a fundamental role in enabling more expansive HD content delivery without increasing demand on valuable satellite bandwidth," said Vice President and Head of Media Solutions at Ericsson, Elisabetta Romano.
"Televisa has a reputation for being a pioneer in the Mexican TV and media industry, deploying new standards based technologies including MPEG-4 AVC, DVB-S2 and now both HEVC and DVB-S2X. We look forward to growing our relationship with them even further over the coming years," added Romano.
