SENCORE Products on Display at BroadcastAsia2011:

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 MPEG-2 to H.264 and H.264 to MPEG-2 SD and HD transcoding — as well as transrating of MPEG-2 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 for the end viewer. The TXS 3453 offers up to 16 channels of transcoding or transrating in a 1RU rackmount platform. 

MRD 3187B Receiver Decoder
The modular MRD 3187B Receiver Decoder adapts to virtually any contribution, distribution, or backhaul environment and sets the standard for performance, scalable functionality, and low cost of ownership. The MRD 3187B is available in one- and two-channel configurations with a range of IP, RF, and ASI input modules and video output options. The robust decoding engine has been designed for maximum interoperability and superior error concealment with support for MPEG-2 and H.264 HD and SD video streams. Dual DVB-CI CAM slots are provided for conditional access, decryption, and multiservice descrambling applications. 

The MRD 3187B also features SENCORE’s 8716 four-port satellite input card. This card not only supports DVB-S and DVB-S2 demodulation as in previous-generation satellite cards, but also includes additional support for the receiver decoder’s advanced features including VCM, 16- and 32-APSK demodulation with 1-45 MSPS capabilities, and multiple transport stream selection via Input Stream Identifier (ISI).


SMD 989 DVB-S2 Modulator

The SMD 989 DVB-S2 Modulator offers unprecedented modulation efficiency and density with two independent DVB-S2 RF transmissions packaged in a single 1RU chassis. The platform supports multistream satellite video delivery, economizes transponder usage, and includes DVB-ASI and IP transport stream inputs. Additional SMD 989 DVB-S2 features include an optional agile L-band upconverter with a frequency range of 950 to 2150 MHz; support for all modulation formats defined in the DVB-S2 standard, including 8-PSK, 16-APSK, and 32-APSK; and optional multistream inputs.


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. The VB330 Dual Port probes add 10GbE analysis capabilities to SENCORE’s already impressive 1GbE offering. In addition, the VB12-RF features QAM/VSB, ASI, and IP analysis all in one compact, portable chassis.


DMG 3000 Series Multiplexers

SENCORE’s Digital Media Gateway (DMG) 3000 line of multiplexers has added a new 16 QAM channel output module to its already flexible line of IP, ASI, and RF capabilities. The 16-channel module provides enhanced density for digital cable deployments. When multiple QAM (A,B,C) modules are placed within a chassis, hundreds of programs can be deployed from a single device, which also gives operators the ability to multiplex and descramble as needed. The QAM modules are currently offered on the DMG 3000 series. In addition, the DMG 3000 series multiplexers can receive 8VSB off-air, DVB-S/S2 Satellite, ASI, and IP signals for providing multiplexed IP, ASI, and now QAM outputs.
