NASA recently launched its own HD channel -- allowing for the transmission of HD images from both manned and un-manned spaceflight missions direct to news organizations, cable, and satellite service providers. One of the challenges NASA TV faced in this endeavor was to create a predictable and dependable infrastructure for professional-quality SDI output from various sources such as ASI, IP, and RF.

The Sencore MRD 3187B receiver decoder plays a crucial role in delivering these high-quality productions worldwide for NASA TV.  When live content – encoded  as MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 – is  routed to NASA TV headquarters, the MRD 3187B receives and decodes the content. The MRD 3187B integrates seamlessly with NASA TV’s multiplexers, supporting a smooth workflow for quality content distribution.

This single-box solution delivers high quality SDI content from ASI, IP, and RF sources, and meets the needed multi-format input requirements. The platform is adaptable and easily upgradable, with a  wide range of interfaces to support virtually any application through a combination of dual-channel processing with MPEG2, H.264, 4:2:0, 4:2:2, SD and HD video decoding.
