Modulus Video and Sencore announced that Modulus Video is expanding its MPEG-4 AVC product family with the introduction of the MD3187A — a complete multiformat modular receiver decoder family based on Sencore's MRD3187 system. The MD3187A is fully interoperable with Modulus Video's complete line of MPEG-4 AVC encoding products for HD SD video, including the new ME2000 multiformat AVC encoder family. The combination of products provides a fully optimized point-to-point distribution solution to meet a wide range of broadcast distribution needs, including direct-to-the-home (DTH) operations, backhaul, transmission monitoring and more.
Under the agreement, Modulus Video will distribute the MD3187A through its worldwide network of distribution partners.
The MD3187A supports up to two independent MPEG-2 4:2:0/4:2:2 or MPEG-4 AVC decoders. With its eight available I\O slots, the MD3187A can be configured either as a single eight-slot or as two independent four-slot systems. Available interfaces include DVBS2, COFDM, DVB-CI and IP.
