Scopus unveils IP-based video network management at IBC2006

At IBC2006, Scopus Video Networks launched two new platforms for emerging digital video networks: the NMS-7000 video networking management system and the IRD-2900 MPEG-4 H.264 SD decoder.

The NMS-7000 provides service-level management of video services in a carrier-class modular architecture. The NMS-7000 can control large distributed networks as well as smaller headends.

The IRD-2900 multiformat decoding platform decodes either MPEG-4 or MPEG-2 SD content. It features rich reception front-ends such as: DVB-S2, single or dual L-Band inputs, DSNG, dual MPEG-over-IP input, G.703 and DS3. It also integrates IP technologies, decryption, IP data output (MPE decapsulation), SNMP and Web–based management. The combination of MPEG-4 SD decoding and DVB-S2 demodulation improves bandwidth utilization by more than three times, enhancing content distribution services.
