Vietnamese TV Viewers Enjoy Wider Choice of HD Content

Ericsson has supplied VTC with a solution comprising the Ericsson Video Processor Chassis (VPC) and its Encoder modules

Vietnam Television Corporation (VTC) has extended channel capacity across its HD and SD services through the deployment of Ericsson advanced compression products. Ericsson’s market leading solutions have enabled VTC to roll out a further 20 MPEG-4 AVC HD channels and an additional 70 MPEG-2 SD channels to its satellite customers across Vietnam. This offers viewers more premium content such as movies, sports and international programming in the high picture quality they are increasingly expecting from their subscription.

"We continue to make a strong commitment to quality, both in terms of the programming on offer and the way in which we deliver it to our viewers," said Dr Thai Minh Tan, CEO, VTC. "High definition content is becoming increasingly popular among our subscribers, and we have therefore responded to this by increasing the number of HD channels we can provide. We have experience in working with the Ericsson team to provide enhanced TV services in the past, and were therefore confident that Ericsson could once again provide us with the reliability and performance levels we required."

Ericsson has supplied VTC with a solution comprising the Ericsson Video Processor Chassis (VPC) and its EN81XX MPEG-2 SD and MPEG-4 AVC HD encoder modules. The Ericsson Video Processor Chassis (VPC) is a high density, multi-functional, video processing platform that meets the requirements of today’s broadcasters.
