Ellipse 3000 contribution encoders leverage Harmonic’s industry-leading compression expertise and a flexible system architecture to bring new levels of video quality and workflow efficiency to broadcast contribution applications. Multi format, multi-codec versatility, low latency and an optional integrated modulator make this all-new compression platform ideal for both digital satellite news gathering (DSNG) and fixed contribution. A compact footprint and plug-and-play deployment deliver the additional benefit of low cost of ownership.


  • MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC SD/HD 4:2:0/4:2:2 8/10-bit encoding
  • Broad SD/HD format support, up to 1080p60
  • Optional integrated broadcast satellite modulator supporting DVB-S/S2/S2X and DVB-CID on top of NIT-CID; roll-off factor up to 5%
  • Audio encoding of up to eight stereo or 16 mono channels


Pristine video quality

The ability to encode 1080p60 content in AVC 4:2:2 10-bit enables the transmission of exceptionally vivid video, augmenting your ability to offer customers the highest video quality available.

Integrated broadcast satellite modulator

The on-board modulator on the ViBE CP3200 offers DVB-S/S2/DSNG transmission modes; the ViBE CP3202 supports DVB-S2X as well. Both the devices offer QPSK, 8PSK, 16QAM and 16APSK modulation. They support IF or L-band outputs, which can directly feed the up-converter, providing a very compact uplink package.

Content protection

Prevent signal interception with industry-standard BISS mode 1 and BISS-E encryption. ViBE CP3000 supports the new Carrier ID system (DVB-CID) currently under development, making it easier to identify interfering carriers and respond to a radio frequency interference event — improving quality of service and reducing operating costs.

Contribution over the Internet

With support for broadcast-quality video contribution over unmanaged networks, ViBE CP3000 dramatically alters the economics of gathering and distributing news and sports content from locations with Internet access.
