Purpose Built for Outside Broadcasting

Nearly twenty years of outside broadcasting experience went in to the design of the Gryphon PVE-2 contribution video encoder. We now have units deployed in almost every country in the world, helping our broadcast customers tackle the unique and demanding challenges of news and sports contribution. Gryphon PVE-2 combines updated core technology capable of delivering new levels of performance, with an overall product design based on nearly two decades of outside broadcasting experience.

Breaking News Won’ t Wait, Why Should You

Setting up a video encoder can be challenging at the best of times. Errors made while configuring encoders with complex menu trees in the high-pressure environment of a major sports or news event can prevent live shots from getting through. Gryphon PVE-2 has been designed to enable operators, who might not be experts in video compression, to set up contribution links quickly and easily – getting on-the-air in less than 60 seconds. Extremely intuitive menus and front panel controls allow operators to define and enable compression and modulation parameters with only minimal training. For users who prefer Web based control, the built-in Browser interface is equally intuitive and easy to use.

Ready to Grow with Your Business

At DTVI we understand that your needs may change over time. Gryphon PVE-2’s flexible, software license-based architecture allows you to purchase only those features required today, and upgrade to a more advanced feature set including 1080P/60 High Definition compression as your requirements evolve. With a highly flexible and functional modulator, and the ability to add features such as an internal multiplexer, BISS encryption, and advanced audio and video formats, the Gryphon PVE-2 is capable of changing to meet your business needs.

Input Interfaces

While everything else is important, impressive audio and video quality is critical to successful broadcasting. Through its unique combination of ASIC and FPGA technologies, the Gryphon PVE-2 delivers industry leading video and audio compression quality. Advanced features including: dynamic GOP; and scene change, fade, and skin tone detection, allow Gryphon PVE-2 to deliver the absolute best picture possible using whatever bandwidth is available. Single camera feeds can take advantage of extended GOP structures to provide outstanding video quality at extremely low bit rates.

Cost Reduction

The combination of DVB-S2 modulation and Gryphon PVE-2’s advanced MPEG-4 AVC compression allows operators to deliver outstanding audio and video feeds at a much reduced satellite bandwidth cost. Most Gryphon PVE-2 users report being able to provide HD contribution feeds in an equal or smaller bandwidth than they had previously used for SD transmissions. Gryphon PVE-2 makes standard definition news operation at 1 MSymbol/s a reality.
