Scopus Network Technologies will debut new gear for cable and satellite distribution and ENG at NAB2005.

Scopus' new DSNG E-1720 encoder and modulator with integrated L-Band upconverter will be demo-ed at its booth. The unit features modulation and upconversion in a compact 1-RU unit, targeting the DSNG mobile news market, uplink vans, SUVs and flyaway packages. The E-1720 standard unit provides broadcast-quality 70/140 IF and 950- to 2150-MHz L-Band outputs as well as a separate L-Band monitoring output. The unit supports a variety of satellite modulation schemes including QPSK/8PSK and 16 QAM.

Also new in the Scopus booth will be the IRD-2900 series of professional integrated receivers/decoders, targeting satellite and cable distribution as well as operators implementing digital turn-around applications and TV operators requiring professional descrambling and retransmission. The IRD-2900 unit features a dual decoder that decodes two programs within the same transport stream as well as built-in transport stream descrambling capability.

Scopus has also updated its UE-9000 Universal MPEG encoding platform to include dual-channel MPEG-2 real-time encoding, giving broadcasters a migration path from MPEG-2 to new compression formats such as MPEG-4, Part 10 and VC1.

Scopus will also feature a live demo of newsgathering over IP (NGoIP) technology. The demonstration combines a Scopus IRD-2900 coupled with an E-1000 encoder that delivers IP input/output.

Scopus will be in Booth SU8470.
