Sencore Products at the ANGA Cable Show 2013
Distribution Receiver/Decoder MRD 4400
Sencore's new MRD 4400 is a cost-effective SD decoder capable of being upgraded to HD via a software license. It supports decoding of H.264 and MPEG-2 video to broadcast-quality outputs via SDI and composite interfaces. With up to four audio services, distributors can meet upcoming descriptive video requirements while still supporting surround or alternate language services. Multiple input options such as satellite, ASI, and IP ensure the 4400 will easily interface into any monitoring and/or operational video distribution application. The system also allows operators to demodulate, de-encapsulate, encapsulate, and decode simultaneously for local processing and re-encode requirements.

Contribution Receiver/Decoder MRD 5800
Sencore's new MRD 5800 advanced modular receiver/decoder supports today's highest quality video feeds and provides H.264, MPEG-2, 4:2:2, 4:2:0, 10-bit, and 8-bit decoding with effortless automatic detection and configuration. Field-upgradable software licensing enables a pay-as-you-grow approach to better video quality, and with full HD decoding and output up to and including 1080p60 and 3G SDI outputs, the operator can be confident that the system is truly "future-proof." The MRD 5800 offers up to eight PIDs of audio decoding to deal with the multichannel, multilingual environment of live-event coverage. The system is ideal for many types of contribution environments, including large-venue OB productions, satellite trucks, and fixed-point contribution, as well as high-end distribution in which tools such as 4:2:2 chroma sampling are in use. The MRD 5800 provides ASI, satellite, RF, and IP input options, and supports full use of SMPTE 2022 (CoP3) forward-error correction.

Modular Receiver/Decoder MRD 3187B
Sencore's MRD 3187B receiver/decoder features a new IP output card that supports PID and service filtering, ideal for IP turn-around applications. Other important features include genlock and an automatic primary/backup failover; DVB-Common Interface for conditional access; multiservice descrambling; and advanced DVB-S2 capabilities such as 16/32 ASPK demodulation and multistream VCM input support. The MRD 3187B adapts to almost any distribution environment and sets the standard for performance, scalable functionality, and low cost of ownership.

DVB-S/S2 Modulator SMD 989
The SMD 989 DVB-S/S2 modulator offers unprecedented efficiency, flexibility, and reliability for all types of satellite digital video delivery applications. The modulator's intuitive user and remote interfaces ensure fast setup and effortless system integration, as well as quick field operation when time is most critical. Supporting ASI and IP inputs, the latest software release also adds TR 101 290 analysis and programmable failover capabilities for high-confidence integration into an always-on head-end environment. The SMD 989 platform supports six-input VCM multistream without the need for external stream "aggregators," and it offers advanced S2 modes such as 8PSK, 16APSK, and 32APSK that optimize transponder use and minimize operating expense.

High-Density Dense IP/ASI Transport Stream Gateway DMG 1200
The DMG 1200 family is a series of high-density transport stream gateways for IP and ASI applications. Featuring up to four gigabit Ethernet interfaces and sixteen ASI ports, the DMG 1200 is ideal for solving the interconnection problems operators face in today’s evolving video delivery environment. The 1200 boasts features that easily connects legacy infrastructure, converts up to sixteen channels per RU of ASI to IP or IP to ASI.

Modular system monitoring - VideoBridge: VB120, VB262, VB220
The VB 120 modular broadcast probe is designed for continuous digital TV monitoring with system scalability in terms of monitoring capacity, signal formats, and functionality - ensuring a future-proof solution. The VB120 gives content providers the ability to measure IP media services continuously for reliable, around-the-clock confidence monitoring. Also on display is the VB262 monitoring blade, an input option on the VB120 that offers monitoring of QAM signals as found in cable networks.
