ViBE CP6000 is a dedicated, multi-format, high-performance platform for contribution and primary distribution of live video.

Its modular design supports up to four hot-swappable boards. It encodes an unprecedented eight HD channels or encodes and modulates up to six channels per 1RU chassis.

The processing board can be either a MPEG encoder/decoder board with AES & analogue audio interfaces or a dual channel MPEG encoder/decoder board or DVB-S/S2/S2X modulator board. Every board is hot swappable for field upgrade and to ease operation.

Both MPEG boards feature the latest embedded MPEG video compression technology for industry-leading video quality. Codecs and profiles – from MPEG-2 SD 4:2:0 up to MPEG-4 HD 4:2:2 10-bit – can be enabled with software licensing as required.

The hot-swappable DVB-S/S2/S2X modulator offers the full range of modulation modes up to the latest DVB-S2X 64APSK modulation mode. It supports extended symbol rates and the latest DVB-S2X extensions such as low roll-off and carrier ID.

Its modular architecture offers optimum performance, flexibility, scalability and upgradability to maximize customer benefit.
