The versatile multiformat receiving/decoding/processing platform for cable, satellite, terrestrial, and IPTV operations, the IRP brings together an array of processing capabilities, such as multiplexing, IP streaming, transmodulation, and descrambling, to provide a complete reception solution for content contribution and distribution over IP, ASI, or satellite infrastructures.
“Today’s broadcast operators and content providers are challenged like never before to expedite a smooth transition to digital broadcasting and establish mass delivery of HD services,” noted Yan Mostovoy, associate VP of marketing at Scopus Video Networks. “At the same time, the environment in which they operate has become increasingly complex, requiring the ability to manage a large variety of video formats, technologies, and standards" he explained. "With the IRP platform, we’re directly addressing these challenges by bringing together multiple front-ends, programme descramblers, and powerful remultiplexing capabilities, all within a compact 1-RU chassis."
