Dish HD Asia has picked Thomson Video Networks’s ViBE VS7000 HEVC encoder to power a new Ultra HD/4K, all-HEVC satellite service upgrade that will aid in the delivery of more than 120 channels in Northeast Asia.
TVN, a Rennes, France-based video tech firm that's being acquired by Harmonic, said the set-up will combine the ViBE VS7000 with the NetProcessor 9030 multiplexer/scrambler, MediaFlex Suite and FUZE-1 4K playout system.
"With this major system upgrade, we have moved away from MPEG-4 and are now a fully HEVC satellite DTH network, enjoying significant bandwidth efficiencies and savings through Thomson Video Networks' ViBE VS7000," said Wai Hoong Tham, director of networks and broadcast for DISH HD, in a statement.
Thomson Video Networks said its partner, Ideal Systems HK, provided systems integration and installation for the DISH HD service.
