Scopus to introduce DVB-S2 professional integrated receiver decoders

Scopus will introduce DVB-S2-compliant professional integrated receiver decoders (IRDs) at IBC2004.

The IRDs will enable broadcasters to use available satellite bandwidth more efficiently via the emerging DVB-S2 (Digital Video Broadcasting - Satellite) standards. They are intended for headend broadcast sites for contribution and distribution applications.

Scopus IBC2004 new products include:

  • CODICO E-1800 HD encoder supports 1080i, 720p, and 480p with 4:2:2/4:2:0 encoding up to 45Mb/s. The product is ATSC- and DVB-compliant.
  • CODICO E-9000 UniversalEncoder works with all broadcast formats including MPEG-4, Windows Media 9 (WM9), SD and HD encoding formats. It is a migration path from MPEG-2 to new compression algorithms such as the SD and HD MPEG-4 Part 10 (H.264) and WM9 formats.
  • CODICO IRD-2900, the newest IRD’s graphical front-panel display includes a variety of front-end options, such as ASI transport-stream input and output to support bit rates over 155Mb/s, IP inputs, up to four QPSK L-Band inputs, and up to four pairs of balanced outputs.
