SNG/Rack-mount Systems – Reduce Space-segment Costs and/or upgrade your SNG/TNG Truck to 4K
HEVC Encoding offers significant bit-rate reductions compared with legacy H.264 systems. The improvement is a bigger leap than that from MPEG2 to H.264 and savings of up to 50% are achievable. Additionally, Sapphire can encode up to 4x high quality HD signals simultaneously – this can result in significant savings in operational budgets with quick turn-around ROI (return on investment).
With its 4x HD encoding capability and high-end 10-bit, 4:2:2 quality, the BWS Sapphire HEVC/4K was specifically developed by our in-house engineering team to enable users to upgrade their existing SNG or Microwave Links to HEVC and 4K operation. Simply connect the Sapphire Encoder into your existing Satellite or Microwave transmission system via a single ASI or IP cable and you are ready to go. If you need advice on how Sapphire might interface with your particular system, please contact us – we will be glad to help.
