Decoding video formats

13 March 2012

Making its debut is Sencore’s upcoming MRD 5800 receiver/decoder, which supports today’s highest quality contribution video feeds and provides full H.264, 4:2:2, and 10-bit decoding. In addition, support for up to eight audio PIDs gives operators the flexibility to tackle all of their multi-language, multi-channel, and multi-format delivery challenges. The MRD 5800 will also decode and output Full HD 1080p60 video, ensuring compatibility with popular video formats in use today and well into the future. The company will also introduce OTT adaptive stream monitoring enhancements to its VideoBRIDGE line of probes and software that will help operators ensure desired QoS from the point of origination, through the delivery network, and onto the customer-premise end viewing devices. VB owners will be able to monitor quality of all popular adaptive bitrate streaming protocols by adding licenses to their existing VB probes, by including the OTT options with new probe installations, and by installing VB software modules directly onto multiscreen client devices. The new options will monitor every aspect influencing the multiscreen viewer experience including extensive protocol breakdown, peak, average, and total bandwidth utilisation, and advance packet loss and jitter metrics. The Sencore TXS line of MPEG2/4 transcoders has been updated for 2012 with several must-have features, including audio transcoding and simultaneous PiP (small format video) generation. As always, the TXS delivers a flexible, high-density, high-quality package providing multiple channels of transcoding or transrating in a 1-RU chassis.  SU3612
