Miranda adds support for satellite demodulation and DVB-CA descrambling to Densité IRD-3811 IRD
Miranda Technologies has enhanced its Densité IRD-3811 integrated receiver/decoder by adding support for DVB-S and DVB-S2 demodulation plus DVB-CA conditional access. This enables DBS, cable and IPTV operators to demodulate satellite signals from program originators and allows broadcasters to receive digital terrestrial feeds, as well as network and remote feeds. It provides both MPEG-2 and H.264 video decoding and supports Dolby Digital AC-3. The IRD-3811 also provides advanced HD/SD video and multichannel audio processing in an ultra-compact form factor, with 10 IRDs per 3RU frame.
The IRD is available with a DVB-CI slot, which supports conditional access systems for descrambling multiple encrypted services. With its optional GigE port, the IRD-3811 can also act as a gateway by performing IP encapsulation of the input transport stream in either RTP or UDP mode.
