DVEO Shipping Next Generation Professional 8VSB Receiver with Built-in LCD Monitor, Decodes to SDI/HD-SDI and Outputs IP+ASI

San Diego, California –- DVEO is now shipping their professional 8VSB receiver and H.264/MPEG-2 decoder with a built-in HD LCD monitor and high quality speakers. DVEO will feature the new Allview 8VSB/HD-SDI+IP at the NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) Show, April 13-16, in Las Vegas, Nevada, at booth SU6605.

A classic receiver demodulator, the Allview 8VSB/HD-SDI+IP features 8VSB, IP unicast or multicast (with Pro-MPEG FEC), and DVB-ASI inputs. Outputs are IP, SDI/HD-SDI with embedded audio, DVB-ASI, analog, or MPEG or AC-3 audio. The broadcast quality, frequency agile system can automatically switch between RF and IP inputs. It supports AES-3 id audio as well as MPEG-1/2, PCM, and AC-3.

The Allview 8VSB/HD-SDI+IP is also available with an optional DVB-S/DVB-S2 or DVB-T+T2 tuner instead of an 8VSB tuner.

"With its built-in 4.3 inch LCD monitor and 10 watt speaker, the Allview 8VSB/HD-SDI+IP is ideal for comprehensive off-air monitoring of on-air broadcasts via RF or IP for master control or ENG (Electronic News Gathering) trucks," commented Laszlo Zoltan, Vice President of DVEO. "It's super flexible -- our customers can also use it for HD-SDI file playback, content repurposing, decoding IP transport streams, and decoding ASI or SMPTE 310M streams with PID filtering."

Laszlo Zoltan went on to say, "In addition to showing the video being decoded, the monitor displays many on-screen diagnostics as overlays."

The Allview 8VSB/HD-SDI+IP includes the most desired professional features, such as ASI RF failover and optional second audio outputs (SAP) for more audio choices. The device is operated via LCD front panel controls or SNMP management. The system is PSIP/EIA-608, 708 closed caption compliant.

The Allview 8VSB/HD-SDI+IP supports 576i/480i, 576p/480p, 720p and 1080i decoding. It also down converts HD input to SD out if requested.
