At NAB2007, Scopus Video Networks showed its fully integrated IP video networking solution addressing broadcast, satellite, cable and telco infrastructures and its newly released second-generation SD H.264 and upcoming HD H.264 encoders.
Scopus' IP headend solution provides full IP connectivity between digital headend components, enabling flexible program routing and fast redundancy. It eliminates the need for expensive audio/video matrices.
The UE-9810 is Scopus' new H.264 HD encoding platform. It allows broadcasters and operators to offer premium high-definition content. Featuring ASI and IP outputs for channel redundancy and network support, it offers operators integrated, advanced multiplexing capabilities for flexible and easy creation of various services. The company expects to ship the unit in the fourth quarter of the year.
Scopus also demonstrated its UE-9410 second-generation, SD H.264 encoding platform. With IP and ASI outputs, the UE-9410 offers high picture quality and improved compression capabilities that result in low bit rate to better use bandwidth.
