The new Rohde & Schwarz R&S AVHE100 video encoding and multiplexing solution is designed to broadcast HDR material in UltraHD as well as in HD format. Its architecture is intended to allow headend operators to replace existing encoders or to build entirely new multiplex systems. All functions are implemented by software modules, allowing integration to HEVC.

The R&S AVHE100 is designed to support a larger color space (Rec. 2020) and a larger dynamic range of luminosity for UltraHD, HDR and HD signals.

It can embed HDR-specific metadata in a transport stream by means of a software option. HDR signaling is switched on and off via the system's GUI, by an external trigger or by means of a scheduler. When used in conjunction with the R&S VENICE ingest and playout platform, the AVHE100 switches between SDR and HDR content down to the frame level.

The solution is also designed to support to migration to HEVC. It's intended to migrate existing UltraHD and HD channels to HEVC, or to build new UltraHD and HD channels including HEVC capability, whether replacing individual encoder installations with more efficient ones or deploying the R&S AVHE100 as a large-scale headend system, as in IPTV or cable networks.
