AVP 3000 DSNG Encoder / VOYAGER



The AVP 3000 Voyager is built upon a revolutionary modular chassis in a space-saving 1RU form factor with up to six hot swappable option slots. It supports a comprehensive range of processing options, including MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC, JPEG-2000 and HEVC are all supported. An integrated satellite modulator offers high order DVB-S/S2/S2X modulation on both IF and L-Band outputs.

AVP 3000 Voyager features a fully functional front panel re-engineered bottom-up to meet the demand of the mobile environment, including ease of operations, quick menu access and effective monitoring. Overall it represents the most advanced DSNG unit on the market, offering broadcast- ers, operators and service providers the level of integration, flexibility and scalability necessary to future-proof any operational investment during today’s technology migration.




Outstanding Innovation Delivers the most Flexible Integrated DSNG


Based on two decades of encoder design experience, and a series of SNG world firsts, the AVP 3000 Voyager is a radical new design. Based on Ericsson’s in-house technology, the AVP 3000 Voyager targets today’s network technology migration with a future-proof mod- ular platform, capable of multi-codec, multi-format and multi-channel operations. Highly flexible, the AVP 3000 Voyager provides a multi- tude of independent and concurrent output options, including IP, ASI and an integrated DVB-S and DVB-S2 satellite modulator

providing high order modulation on IF and L-Band outputs.


The AVP 3000 Voyager can provide MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC, JPEG-2000 and HEVC video encoding, along with a wide range of audio coding and audio pass through modes.

Efficient Use of Spectrum

It also supports DVB-S2 and DVB-S2X high order modulation on both IF and L-Band outputs. DVB-S2 gives a 30 % performance gain com- pared to DVB-S, and DVB-S2X gives up to 20% performance gain compared to DVB-S2.


Scalable, Expandable and Configurable

All modules in the AVP 3000 Voyager are hot swappable to allow on- site servicing, expansion of the unit functionality and easy re- purposing of units for multiple applications.

Fully Functional Front Panel Operations

A fully-functional front panel provides complete unit control in mobile environments. Its unique ergonomic new design is the result of devel- opment based on industry feedback.
