Ambrado™ Introduces New Product Line of Transmission Encoder/Decoder SystemsNew line of system products features IOU technology – a “pay-as-you-go” upgrade path allowing users to add features as needed.
DALLAS (June 30, 2010) – Ambrado, Inc., a global provider of HD/SD media processing solutions, today announced a full range product line based on Ambrado’s HC Series encoders and decoders equipped with new Instant Option Upgrade (IOU) technology. Base systems, starting at only $14,000, can now be instantly upgraded in the field to match the features and performance of our most advanced models.
IOU makes it easy to upgrade encoder and decoder systems only when new functionality is needed. Upgrades take as little as two minutes and can be purchased from any Ambrado Authorized Reseller.
“Many customers are faced with very deep CAPEX budget and personnel cuts but are expected to do more with less,” said Chris Childs, National Sales Manager, Satellite Engineering Group, “SEG is pleased to offer the perfect solution from Ambrado at a tremendous savings while providing an upgrade path by simply applying a minor software update.”
Version 2.0 of the HC Series lets you selectively enable only the features you need. For example, a broadcaster wanting to upgrade from SD to HD can purchase the Ambrado HD-capable system but defer the cost of HD until he has all other system components installed and ready to go live.
“There is no firmware installation, no hardware add-ins, and no need to remove the equipment from its operating environment,” Childs continued, “New features can be applied in seconds when you need them.”
"One of the biggest benefits of Ambrado’s field-upgradable architecture has always been to take advantage of the latest developments in CODEC and other technologies as they are advanced” said Mark Fears, GM, Ambrado, Inc. "We’re taking our unique advantage a step further with aggressive entry-level pricing while maintaining upgradability to a full feature set, allowing our customers to deploy Ambrado solutions today with options to expand the same hardware platform at minimal cost at any time in the future."
Customers can choose from a variety of initial configuration options tailored to their present needs and budget. HC Series Encoders and Decoders with IOU are available now. For details on these and other Ambrado video processing products, go to http://www.ambrado.com/products.
