4K HEVC Software Decoder

MRD 7000
Backed by Sencore's years of experience in top-tier receiver decoders comes a software based decoder aimed at contribution 4K/UHD HEVC applications. The MRD 7000 can go where low cost ASIC decoders cannot thanks to the flexibility of software based decoding. Staying agile is paramount in today’s market and the MRD 7000 is ready to deliver.
Decode any video codec from HEVC/H.264/MPEG2 and JPEG 2000 up to 4K/UHD. High bitrate contribution decoding ability with support for 4:2:2 chroma sampling and 10-bit depth. The MRD 7000 supports up to 8 services of audio embedding in any format in SDI.
The receiver also maintains Sencore's long tradition of ease of use, with a straight-forward web interface accessible via all major web browsers. MRD 7000 is also backed by Sencore's best-in-class staff of ProCare support engineers.
