Harmonic has expanded the Ellipse 3000 family of contribution encoders for digital satellite newsgathering and fixed contribution applications. The new Ellipse 3102 and Ellipse 3202 contribution encoders offer 4:2:2 10-bit encoding of 1080p60 content and dual power supplies.

The Ellipse 3202 features an integrated modulator that supports both the new DVB Carrier ID (DVB-CID) standard for reducing interference between satellite signals, and the new DVB-S2X specification for improving performance of DVB-S2 satellite digital broadcasting – an industry first, Harmonic claims.

Harmonic's multiformat, multicodec Ellipse encoders support SD, HD, and MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC. The new Ellipse 3102 and 3202 encoders also feature 3G SDI inputs to support the compression of 4:2:2 10-bit 1080p60 content.

The Ellipse 3202 encoder includes all basic output interfaces, including ASI and IP, and features an integrated DVB-S/S2/S2x modulator with simultaneous IF and L-band. The Ellipse 3102 encoder offers simultaneous IP and DVB-ASI outputs as standard.

When used with Harmonic's ProView integrated receiver-decoders (IRDs), the Ellipse 3102 and 3202 encoders are deigned to provide broadcasters with a complete contribution and distribution solution.
