SENCORE Products on Display at the 2011 NAB Show
TXS 3453 Transcoder
The TXS 3453 transcoder delivers multiple channels of best-in-class, high-performance, reliable transcoding and transrating in a high-density 1RU chassis. With a configurable engine and multichannel architecture, the TXS 3453 can perform MPEG2 to H.264 and H.264 to MPEG2 SD and HD transcoding -- as well as transrating of MPEG2 or H.264 streams -- at an unbeatable cost per channel. Key features include ASI and MPEGoIP transport stream inputs and outputs, plus the ability to compress the output to very low bit rates while maintaining excellent video quality to the end viewer. The TXS offers up to 16 channels of transcoding or transrating in a 1RU rack mount platform.
SMD 989 DVB-S2 Modulator
The SMD 989 DVB-S2 modulator, packaged in a two-channel 1RU chassis, offers unprecedented efficiency and flexibility for modulating two independent DVB-S2 RF transmissions. The platform is capable of VCM multi-stream satellite video delivery as well as advanced modulation such as 16APSK and 32APSK, minimizing overall transponder usage and reducing operating expenses. The SMD 989 comes standard with ASI and IP inputs.
Integrated Receivers Decoders
The IRD 3000 series of receivers/decoders are cost-effective solutions for distributing video services on IP, satellite, and ASI networks for terrestrial, satellite, cable, and IPTV broadcast environments. SENCORE's line of integrated receiver decoders (IRD) is designed to support SD applications, allowing operations to leverage their existing SD infrastructures while ensuring an easy software upgrade to HD for future expansion. The IRD 3000 family supports satellite, MPEGoIP and ASI inputs, and SDI and composite outputs, and comes standard with BISS and DVB-CI based decryption.
MRD 3187B Receiver Decoder
The versatile MRD 3187B receiver decoder adapts to almost any contribution, distribution, or backhaul environment and sets the standard for performance, scalable functionality, and cost of ownership. The device's modularity allows the user to adapt the product to almost any monitoring, decoding, or re-transmission application. New features on display at the 2011 NAB Show include IP turn-around configurations, PID filtering, and DVB-S2 / ISSY support. Other important features include SCTE-35 to SCTE-104 DPI message conversion for commercial insertion applications, DVB-Common Interface for conditional access, multiservice descrambling, and advanced DVB-S2 capabilities such as 16ASPK and VCM support.
Monitoring, Measurement, and Analysis Tools at the 2011 NAB Show
The SENCORE VideoBRIDGE family monitors transport packets on IP, ASI, and RF interfaces for continuous quality assurance of streaming media in a variety of compression schemes, including MPEG-2 and MPEG-4. The VideoBRIDGE product line includes advanced core monitoring systems for national networks, edge-specific, and even customer-premises applications. New for the 2011 NAB Show, the VB330 Dual Port probes add 10GbE analysis capabilities to SENCORE's already impressive 1GbE offering. Also, the VB12-RF features QAM/VSB, ASI, and IP analysis all in one compact, portable chassis.
The TSM 1770 transport stream monitor enables engineers to monitor compressed audio, video, and data services on any network. With full support for ASI, SMPTE 310M, 8-VSB, QAM, and Ethernet physical inputs, the TSM 1770 reports transport stream status on the physical layer, protocol, and audio/video levels.
