Scopus Launches New Integrated Receiver Processor Platform

TEL AVIV, Israel, September 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Scheduled to debut at IBC2008 in Amsterdam, Scopus Video Networks' Integrated Receiver Processor (IRP) platform is the next generation of Scopus' world class Integrated Receiver Decoder (IRD) technology. A versatile multiformat receiving/decoding/processing platform for cable, satellite, terrestrial, and IPTV operations, the IRP brings together an array of unique processing capabilities, such as multiplexing, IP streaming, transmodulation, and descrambling, to provide a complete reception solution for content contribution and distribution over IP, ASI, or satellite infrastructures.

"Today's broadcast operators and content providers are challenged like never before to expedite a smooth transition to digital broadcasting and establish mass delivery of HD services," said Yan Mostovoy, associate VP of marketing at Scopus Video Networks. "At the same time, the environment in which they operate has become increasingly complex, requiring the ability to manage a large variety of video formats, technologies, and standards. With the IRP platform, we're directly addressing these challenges by bringing together multiple front-ends, program descramblers, and powerful remultiplexing capabilities, all within a compact 1-RU chassis. The result is a flexible and cost-effective reception solution that can be easily configured to meet the needs of each operator or broadcaster."

The IRP platform targets broadcasters' requirements for handling multiformat HD/SD content, MPEG-2/H.264 decoding, transport stream descrambling, IP edge streaming, ASI aggregation, remultiplexing, transmodulation, HD-to-SD downconversion, and more.

Additionally, the IRP platform incorporates a powerful multiplexing core that enables grooming and PSIP aggregation of multiple HD and SD programs for digital content distribution. This all-in-one architecture eliminates the need for an external multiplexing device, reducing overall system costs and complexity.

The platform also offers a TS processor for multiple-program descrambling, remultiplexing and streaming, and transmodulation from multiple DVB-S/S2 ASI inputs to multiple QAM outputs. A wide variety of inputs (8VSB, ASI, and IP) and outputs (baseband video, audio, ASI, and IP) are available, making it the perfect choice for a wide range of contribution and distribution applications.

At IBC2008 the IRP platform will join Scopus' line of unique and comprehensive IP- and ASI-based headend solutions and video delivery systems, high-quality bandwidth-optimization solutions for contribution and distribution, and multiformat video encoding platforms for hybrid transmission and diverse HD/SD services.
