TANDBERG Television, part of the Ericsson group (NASDAQ:ERIC), has introduced the RX8330 professional integrated receiver decoder, the newest product in the RX8300 series of products optimized for high-volume video distribution applications.
The RX8330 distribution receiver is built into a compact, one rack (1RU) unit chassis with many standard features and an array of system configuration options. The device decodes all major SD video formats in use today, making it a safe, yet flexible choice for programmers and operators who have yet to migrate from MPEG-2 SD to MPEG-4 AVC SD. The new distribution receiver provides industry-standard transport stream interfaces, compatibility with popular conditional access systems including DVB Common Interface, integrated Dolby® audio decoding as well as options for on-site or remote system configuration and management.
With the addition of a high quality SDI output, many users will find it an appropriate solution for MPEG-2 SD 4:2:0 applications. Standard features include a 4-input DVB-S QPSK satellite demodulator (with a DVB-S2 option); transport stream input with ASI connection; dual, switchable ASI/SDI output; support for major CA standards including DVB Common Interface and TANDBERG Director®; front panel and web browser control with alarm relay; and SCTE 35 controlled contact closures for ad insertion signaling.
