ARRIS Unveils SE-7000 Encoder to Support Live HEVC HD Streaming and Improved IPTV Viewing Experience
Enables video service and content providers to develop HEVC deployment strategies; deliver high-quality video with minimal network impact

ATLANTA, Oct. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SCTE-Cable Tec Expo -- ARRIS Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: ARRS) is introducing the ARRIS SE-7000 to make it easier for service and content providers to develop High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) deployment strategies.

The ARRIS SE-7000 encoder solution addresses limited bandwidth challenges while also supporting live HEVC streaming over the MPEG2 TS standard. The SE-7000, a fourth-generation video compression system based on the widely deployed SE-6000 encoder, can simulcast both HEVC and Advanced Video Coding (AVC) streams along with integrated low-resolution picture-in-picture (PIP). It also supports IP and baseband SDI inputs.

"Service and content providers are focused on delivering HEVC this coming year, as bandwidth demands continue and UltraHD content services become more widely available," said Bruce McClelland, President, Network & Cloud, Global Services, ARRIS. "We are working with our customers and are introducing the SE-7000 to provide the efficiency and performance they need to truly deliver customers their media, their way."

Powering Smarter Networks
Service providers face a growing need to optimize bandwidth to deliver more video and content on any device, anywhere.

By using the HEVC standard, the SE-7000 enables video service providers to extend high-quality IPTV video reach over existing wireless, DSL or DOCSIS networks. HEVC has shown the ability to use 50% less bandwidth compared to the H.264 compression standard.

According to the Fourth Annual Media Engagement Barometer by ARRIS, most global consumers now expect these types of "your media, your way" services. The average consumer uses multiscreen services away from home four days a week, and over a quarter download TV programs to their mobile devices on a daily basis.
