Ericsson helps Viettel expand TV offering

Viettel, Vietnam’s largest telecom operator, is deploying the Ericsson Multi-platform Video Processing solution with the Ericsson AVP 4000 system encoder to enable the delivery of cable TV alongside its existing IPTV services.

Ericsson has provided Viettel with a solution optimized for scale and reliability, while also delivering cost savings due to the high efficiency of the Ericsson AVP 4000. Ericsson will now be responsible for services such as design, supply and systems integration – for systems involved in everything from acquisition to transmission at the head-end, inclusive of multiple sub systems – as well as commissioning and support of the operator’s complex ecosystem.

The Ericsson AVP 4000 Encoder Family offers Ericsson’s best ever levels of picture quality in MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC in both SD and HD. Powered by the company’s first ever professional video chip, the AVP 4000 Encoder Family offers the highest performance and broadest capability in the industry on a single platform across all applications.

“Consumers have never been so receptive to new content and new TV services,” says Dr. Giles Wilson, Head of TV Compression Business, Ericsson. “It is therefore vital for operators to expand their businesses to increase customer reach and leverage the explosion of available video content we are currently seeing. The provision of our solutions to Viettel puts it at the forefront of Vietnam’s TV industry and will enable its viewers to benefit from improved picture quality and a greater choice of programming.”
