Sencore expands line of receiver/decoder products
Sencore is expanding its family of receiver/decoder products. Making their European debut will be the MRD 5800, a new receiver/decoder, as well as the MRD 4400, a SD decoder that can be upgraded to HD via a software license.
MRD 5800 Receiver/Decoder
Sencore’s new MRD 5800 receiver/decoder will make its European debut. The product decodes any of the high-quality video feeds required in today’s demanding contribution environment, including 4:2:2 H.264 or MPEG-2 video, at either 8- or 10-bit depth. The MRD 5800 will also decode and output full HD 1080p60 video as 3G-SDI. The MRD 5800 also offers up to eight PIDs of audio decoding to deal with the multichannel, multi-language environment of live event coverage.
MRD 3187B Receiver/Decoder
For applications where maximum flexibility is required, Sencore’s MRD 3187B receiver/decoder continues to provide a solution that can be tailored to almost any distribution environment. The product features a new IP output card that supports PID and service filtering features — ideal for IP turnaround applications. Additional important features include a DVB-T terrestrial front-end for monitoring off-air signals, DVB-Common Interface for conditional access, multi-service descrambling, and advanced DVB-S2 capabilities, such as 16/32 ASPK demodulations and multistream/VCM support.
MRD 4400 Receiver/Decoder
The 4400 is a cost-effective SD decoder capable of being upgraded to HD via a software license. It supports decoding for either MPEG-2 or H.264, along with up to four audio services. The increased audio handling capability allows distributors to meet descriptive video requirements, while continuing to support surround or alternate language services. The MRD 4400 supports satellite, ASI, and IP inputs. The system also allows operators to demodulate, de-encapsulate, encapsulate, and decode simultaneously for local processing and re-encode requirements.
TXS 3600 Transcoder
The TXS line of MPEG-2/4 transcoders delivers a flexible, high-density, high-quality package providing multiple channels of transcoding or transrating in a 1-RU chassis. The TXS 3600 transcodes video services from an MPEG transport stream to or from MPEG-2 or H.264 and can convert from HD to SD format. The transcoder also supports audio format conversion between common formats, including Dolby Digital and Digital Plus, MPEG-2, HE-AAC, AAC-LC, and linear PCM.
A selection from Sencore’s VideoBRIDGE product line will be on display, including new OTT adaptive stream monitoring enhancements to select VideoBRIDGE probes and software.
SMD 989 DVB-S/S2 Modulator
The SMD 989 DVB-S/S2 modulator offers efficiency, flexibility, and reliability for various types of satellite digital video delivery applications. The modulator’s intuitive user and remote interfaces ensure fast setup and effortless system integration, including both standard ASI and IP inputs. The SMD 989 platform supports 6-input VCM multistream without the need for external stream “aggregators,” and offers advanced S2 modes such as 8PSK, 16APSK, and 32APSK.
