Scopus UID-2902 Dense Universal IP Decoder Now ShippingUID-2902 is first release of new decoder product line for the migration to digital (March 31, 2005)
Scopus Network Technologies (www.scopusamericas.com), a leading supplier of digital TV networking to the broadcasting, cable, and satellite industries, today launched its dense IP decoder UID-2900 product family with the introduction of the UID-2902 Universal IP Decoder. The UID-2902, a cost-effective platform that enables migration from analog to all-digital distribution networks, is currently being evaluated by several leading U.S.-based cable operators (MSOs).
The new UID-2902 1-RU device features concurrent two-channel MPEG decoding, dual MPEG over IP inputs supporting IGMPv2 (IGMPv3 ready), simultaneous two video stream and four audio stream support, and both link and logical redundancy. Management and control of the UID-2902 are easily achieved via an easy-to-use graphical front panel, a simple network management protocol (SNMP), or Web-based management.
The Scopus UID-2900 series of multi-channel IP decoders are housed in a true 1-RU chassis and are integral elements of a comprehensive, all-digital solution designed to further the evolution of digital simulcasting. Scopus professional IP decoders enable cable operators to optimize essential network bandwidth while simultaneously supplying analog distribution on the edge of the HFC network. In addition, operators can leverage Scopus position as the only manufacturer providing all of the other major all-digital migration components to create an entire chain including constant bit rate (CBR) and variable bit rate (VBR) encoders, open loop and closed loop statistical multiplexers, grooming/muliplexing/rate-shaping gateways, and network management systems.
?Now commercially available, the UID-2902 enables operators to distribute all of their programming once and only once ? digitally ? over the network while ensuring that their analog services remain undisturbed, commented Mario Rainville, vice president of marketing, Scopus Network Technologies, Inc. ?The UID-2902 universal IP decoder, the first member of Scopus multi-channel decoder family, enables a smooth migration to all-digital cable and maintains our position as a leading provider of professional decoder platforms.
