DRIVE DOWN DELIVERY COST AND IMPROVE PICTURE QUALITY
The new High Efficiency Video Coding standard (HEVC/H.265) offers much more than just 4K/UltraHD TV services. HEVC provides the best compression performance of any coding standard to date – improving on the efficiency of H.264/AVC by as much as 50%, and enhances the viewing experience with increased color depth and higher frame rates. At NAB 2015, Sencore is ready to help you leverage HEVC to drive down delivery costs of your HD and SD services while improving picture quality throughout your network. 

Come talk to Sencore HEVC experts about HEVC technologies and your applications.

MRD Contribution & Distribution MPEG2/H.264/HEVC Receiver Decoders
Sencore is proud to announce the availability of HEVC decoding in its best-in-class MRD 4400 and MRD 5800 distribution and contribution receiver decoders. Existing and new MRD owners can now upgrade the MRD’s robust MPEG2/H.264 decode engine to support HEVC Main & Main 10 profiles, Level 4.0/High-Tier and Level 4.1/Main-Tier, including: 4:2:2/4:2:0, 10-bit/8-bit, and HD/SD formats up to 1080p.

MPEG2/H.264/HEVC Compression Analysis
The CMA 1820 provides in-depth analysis and stream utilities for qualifying and selecting new HEVC compression products in the lab.  The CMA is also the only tool you’ll need to verify and troubleshoot installation as you upgrade your entire infrastructure to leverage the significant cost savings and quality improvements HEVC has to offer.

HEVC Monitoring Solutions
Sencore’s VideoBRIDGE IP and transport monitoring probes and software have been upgraded to support delivery of HEVC services through your entire network. Now you can confidently take advantage of HEVC bandwidth efficiency while maintaining your high QoS standards and 24/7 uptime.

REPURPOSE CONTENT INTO VALUE-ADDED OTT SERVICES
Subscribers are demanding access to subscription services across multiple devices and networks.  Sencore is enabling leading video providers to repurpose content and stream hundreds of real-time video channels to subscribers with the DMG 3200 Digital Media Gateway and new atlasGear high-density receive and decode cards and frames.

DMG 3200 Digital Media Gateway
The DMG platform supports receiving, re-multiplexing, processing and transmitting content in all types of transport stream applications, including IP Multicast/Unicast distribution, Over-the-Air RF channel collection, Satellite Content backhaul, legacy ASI conversion, and Broadcast retransmission applications. The DMG is available in high-density 4RU and 1RU versions that include dual hot-swappable power supplies, and advanced monitor, control and redundancy features.

DRIVE DOWN RACKSPACE FOR RECEPTION AND CONDENSE YOUR MCR
Occasional use facilities seldom have extra space to spare.  Sencore’s industry-first 4:2:2 IRD-on-a-card, makes it possible to receive any contribution feed (up to 4:2:2 10-bit AVC) directly from satellite or IP with up to 10 channels in a 2RU frame.  The new aG series also continues Sencore’s legacy of dense monitoring decoders with IP and terrestrial RF reception.

atlasGear High-Density Receive and Decode System
Sencore has expanded its openGear high-density receive and decode system with new decode and turnaround cards and I/O options.  The new AG 5800, AG 4400, and AG 2600 cards support ASI, MPEG/IP, Satellite and RF inputs with DVB-CI and BISS descrambling options.  A 2RU AG frame with dual hot-swap power supplies can hold up to 10 independent channels of MPEG-TS processing and 4:2:2/4:2:0 A/V decoding.  Each card serves its own web-GUI for monitoring and control while the “Dashboard” view makes it easy to manage hundreds of cards with ease.

COMMERCIAL A/V, HOSPITALITY AND HOUSES OF WORSHIP
Sencore is now the exclusive North American master distributor for Wellav’s comprehensive line of high value video delivery solutions for small-system commercial A/V applications such as multi-dwelling cable and IPTV systems, hotel video networks, and private content channels used in houses of worship, retail signage, and enterprise telepresence systems.
