openGear® Module Receiver Card

AG 2600

The AG 2600 receiver card leverages the DVB-S2, IP, 8VSB/QAM-B, DVB-T/T2/C/C2/ISDB-T, dual DVB-CI, and ASI designs from Sencore’s newest receiver decoder cards to provide a cost effective multi-channel reception and descrambling platform.

The card integrates into the industry-standard 2RU openGear® OG-3 frame, supporting up to 10 receiver/descrambler pairs per chassis. The AG 2600 is also configurable without the DVB-CI option, and with an optional BISS descrambling support, so it can be matched to any reception infrastructure.

The product is ideal for providing satellite or terrestrial feeds for IP network distribution or integrated transcode infrastructure. Optional PID filtering on the IP output can generate up to 10 MPTS or SPTS outputs from an MPTS input.
Finally, the receiver can be configured with ASI and IP interfaces only for simple turn-around, descrambling, and filtering operations.

Hot swappable cards provide for effortless system expansion, while full SNMP and syslog interfaces and an HTTP-based API support quick and easy integration into multichannel systems. For individual operators, the product features an easy to use web GUI that will be immediately familiar to users of previous Sencore IRDs.
