As ATSC 3.0 deployments continue to expand, broadcast, cable and other MVPD providers are constantly looking for innovative new products to help them manage these new workflows.
As transmissions hit the airwaves, video delivery brand Sencore is responding with new product additions focused on NEXTGEN TV.
These new products include the following new additions to the Sencore family:
- ATSC 3.0 to TS Multi-Channel Transcoder – The TXS 3800 is a dense ATSC 3.0 transcoder, capable of transcoding up to 4 ATSC 3.0 services in a single chassis. Video can be transcoded to MPEG-2 and H.264, along with down-scaling, transrating and caption conversion. Audio is transcoded to either AC-3 or AAC and service names are mapped into standard TVCT format. Once transcoded, all elements are packaged into an MPEG transport stream and output as a traditional MPEG/IP transport stream for downstream use.
- ATSC 3.0 Signal Level Meter – A portable ATSC 3.0 handheld signal level meter (SLM 1530), used for broadcast professionals testing new ATSC 3.0 equipment and installations. Beyond ATSC 3.0, the meter includes full support for legacy ATSC
1.0 and QAM-B cable signals, and can be used for testing, installation, and maintenance.
This lightweight meter includes in-depth RF measurements, such as signal level, MER, BER, S/N, and constellation diagrams. The spectrum analyzer feature is available for a single channel or full spectrum view.
- ATSC 3.0 Receiver Decoder – Sencore’s ARD 3000 series of ATSC 3.0 receiver decoders enables users to decode a single channel (ARD 3100) or up to four channels (ARD 3400) in a 1RU platform. The ARD 3000 series includes an ATSC 3.0 RF input allowing the user to tune to an RF channel and decode up to four services. Decoded services are output via 4x3G-SDI for UHD services or 3G/HD/SD-SDI for HD and SD services. Unit configuration is done using the intuitive web GUI or through APIs like REST and SNMP.
