Scopus at Inter BEE 2008
Today's operators, broadcasters, and content providers face a number of daunting challenges as they future-proof their operations. The ability to handle a large variety of video formats, create digital contribution links, migrate smoothly from MPEG-2 to HD H.264, and establish mass delivery of HD services are all key success factors.
Throughout Inter BEE 2008, Scopus will highlight products and platforms designed to address these challenges head-on. Scopus solutions include industry-leading low-latency HD H.264 encoding for contribution and distribution, comprehensive IP- and ASI-based headend and video delivery systems, high-quality bandwidth-optimization solutions, and multiformat video encoding platforms for hybrid transmission and diverse HD/SD services.
A special feature at this year's show is Eldorado NMS, a new video network management system that significantly enhances the comprehensive capabilities of Scopus' direct-to-home and content distribution solutions. Eldorado NMS allows users to keep pace with rapidly developing digital video technologies as their service offerings and customer base grow.
Also on display at Inter BEE 2008 will be Scopus' new integrated receiver processor (IRP), a next-generation receiving/processing platform for multiformat dense decoding and processing. The IRP is based on the technology underpinning Scopus' world class integrated receiver decoder (IRD) products.
Eldorado Network Management System (NMS)
Designed to meet the fast-paced changes in digital video headend technologies and formats, the Eldorado network management system (NMS) addresses operator, teleport, and broadcaster requirements by managing services and devices across networks, scaling from small headends to large and distributed networks. It uniquely features IP and ASI routing solutions, a variety of redundancy schemes, drag-and-drop operations for topology and views, easy integration of third-party devices, and more.

Integrated Receiver Processor (IRP)
Scopus will demonstrate its integrated receiver processor (IRP), an innovative technology platform for advanced receiving and processing applications. Based on Scopus' widely deployed integrated receiver decoder (IRD) platform technology, the IRP platform targets a variety of headend, edge receiving, and processing applications for cable, satellite, terrestrial, and IPTV operators, addressing handling of multiformat SD/HD content, H.264/MPEG-2 decoding, transport stream descrambling, IP edge streaming, ASI aggregation, remultiplexing, transmodulation, HD-to-SD downconversion, and more.
The IRP's compact 1RU platform incorporates multiformat (HD/SD, H.264/MPEG-2) and dense (up to four channels) decoding, a powerful multiplexing core that enables grooming and PSI/SI and PSIP aggregation of multiple HD and SD programs, and a wide variety of inputs (8VSB, ASI, and IP) and outputs (baseband video, audio, ASI, and IP).
