Ericsson sends news on debut voyage

Ericsson is about to debut its new flexible and scalable news gathering product Voyager II at NAB, which is capable of providing bandwidth savings of more than 30% compared to MPEG-2 Video contribution. To meet growing consumer demand for greater quality coverage, such as HD news services, Ericsson has developed Voyager II, its fifth generation Digital Satellite News Gathering (DSNG) product. It features a fully redesigned intuitive front panel user interface based on industry feedback. Voyager II is claimed to be the first solution to unleash the power of MPEG-4 AVC 4:2:2 encoding with 10-bit precision at up to 1080p50/60 resolutions to the DSNG market. Offering a range of video processing options, it allows users to scale their event coverage from SD to HD and even multichannel and 3D, delivered across a multitude of satellite and terrestrial networks. "In a dynamic and fast moving market, future DSNG solutions must reliably deliver high quality video in multiple formats over all modern transmission technologies and networks," says Giles Wilson, head of technology, Ericsson Solution Area TV. "It is vital that news services and organisations meet the needs and desires of today’s consumers to watch coverage in the highest possible quality, and also ensure they are equipped to provide the next generation experience, such as 3D coverage. Voyager II delivers exactly that, today." Stand SU3308
