"We're building a network for the future, and our investment in the ME-7000 platform reflects our commitment to give consumers exceptional services and stunning high-quality content," said
Eastlink is the first Canadian operator to deploy the ME-7000. The platform delivers state-of-the-art video compression performance while providing highly reliable 24x7 operation. As a converged platform, it can simultaneously support multiple video formats—including MPEG-4 and MPEG-2 for IPTV, Cable Statmux, or Multiple Bit-rate profiles for Adaptive Bit Rate (ABR) uses cases.
The ME-7000's modular and scalable design also supports future upgrades to HEVC and Ultra HD services—including 4K and HDR—at densities and performance levels unachievable through software encoding solutions.
"Our ME-7000 platform is the most advanced video compression system available. It gives Eastlink a significant competitive advantage by processing set-top, multiscreen device, and even 4K UltraHD video compression in a single flexible platform with much less power and higher density than what's available with conventional servers," said
