[Via Satellite 07-15-2015] Pay-TV company Canal+ Group has deployed Thompson Video Networks’ ViBE EM4000 HD/SD encoder to power the migration of its entire Canalsat satellite offering to an all-HD delivery infrastructure based on the H.264 codec. The encoder works with Thompson Video Network’s NetProcessor multiplexer/video processor, Amethyst 3 high-density redundancy switch, and MediaFlex network management system to provide premium eight-channel compression density together with broadcast-quality upscaling for the new all-HD service.
Thompson Video Networks recently upgraded the ViBE EM4000 to enable broadcast-grade SD-to-HD conversion. For the migration project, known as “Tout HD,” Canal+ has modified its entire head-end architecture to build an all-HD MPEG-4 satellite platform for Canalsat, which went live on July 1.
