IMT Intros Nucomm Newscoder 4 Decoder
Integrated Microwave Technologies (IMT) (Booths C6032, OE839), a business unit of Vitec Group’s Videocom Division, is highlighting its new Nucomm Newscoder 4 decoder, the NCRx4 rack-mountable compact HD/SD MPEG2/4 decoder.
The NCRx4 features superb MPEG-4 H.264 SD and HD decoding, enabling broadcasters to decode HD content efficiently over the same infrastructure used to transmit SD or MPEG-2 content. This gives broadcasters the ability to significantly upgrade their capabilities without having to fully invest in a complete MPEG-4 system upgrade. Suited for traditional broadcast, sports and entertainment, and ENG, the Nucomm NCRx4 is a small, low-power, HD/SD video/audio decoder with ASI, SD-SDI, HD-SDI and composite output signals as well as AES decryption.
The NCRx4 features Video-over-IP (VoIP) and remote control via Ethernet port, along with one stereo- or two mono-balanced audio outputs. In addition, it can embed audio onto the SDI output. It also features ASI loop-through for decoding multiple MPEG-4 transport streams.
The NCRx4 requires little setup, and the local control panel is simple and user-friendly. Users need only apply video and power, then connect and select a preset. For advanced functions, such as AES decryption keys or unit naming, an easy-to-use administration software package is supplied, allowing the user to configure up to eight custom presets that can store as much or as little information required.
