Harmonic Inc. Introduces a New IRD to the ProView Product Line
The new ProView 8100 commercial IRD is now available. Introduced in March, the single-channel decoder/descrambler is a compact, fully featured unit for general-purpose primary distribution applications. Users can receive DVB-S/S2, IP or ASI signals, decode SD and HD MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC transport streams to baseband, descramble encrypted programs, and output content to analog or digital. Harmonic’s superior video quality and low latency ensure the timely distribution of content at resolutions up to 1080p50/60.
The 1-RU ProView 8100 supports a rich set of interfaces, including a choice of two or four independent RF ports, DVB-ASI and IP inputs and outputs, and 3G HD-SDI and HDMI outputs. Integration with the Harmonic DMS video distribution management system allows users to deploy and manage a large pool of widely distributed ProView devices from a single interface, resulting in a highly flexible, cost-effective distribution solution.
