Scopus Strengthens System Offerings With Eldorado Network Management System

TEL AVIV, Israel, September 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Scopus Video Networks , a provider of digital video networking solutions, will introduce its new network management system (NMS) Eldorado at IBC2008 in Amsterdam. Eldorado's open, scalable architecture enables smooth and easy technology migration and integration of new services and third-party devices, and can be fully customized to manage resources across networks.

"Eldorado is a direct response to the challenges direct-to-home operators, such as cable, satellite, terrestrial, and IPTV, as well as broadcasters and content providers face in today's increasingly complex and competitive environments," said Alon Avramson, director of NMS at Scopus Video Networks. "These operators need a network management solution that can keep pace with rapidly developing digital video technologies as service offerings and the customer base grow. Eldorado uniquely addresses these requirements as a robust, flexible NMS that scales easily from small operations to large, distributed environments while enabling multi-user operation."

The system provides full support and compatibility for IP and ASI routing for headend and converged infrastructures. Additionally, Eldorado provides a variety of wizard-based redundancy schemes, including 1:1, N:1, N:M product levels; signal paths; and a unique recovery solution for reception loss. Eldorado's graphical user interface features a dashboard providing at-a-glance views of consolidated network status and enables drag-and-drop operations and on-screen setup for both online and offline operations.

At IBC2008, Eldorado will be the centerpiece of Scopus' flexible headend concept, based on both IP and ASI interfaces, providing full variable content processing, management, and redundancy. This concept ensures minimal operational downtime, reduces expenses, and enables delivery of new services.

Another enhancement to Scopus' headend solutions is the company's new H.264 HD/SD statistical multiplexing system, addressing direct-to-home services and content distribution. This system leverages H.264 DVB-S2 technologies to deliver considerable bandwidth savings to cable, satellite, IPTV, and terrestrial facilities, as compared to MPEG-2 DVB-S-based systems.
