Encoders and Decoders with Deep Packet Recovery
Adtec mediaHUB-HD 422 encoders and SoloistHD-Pro decoders are enabling Superior Access Solutions’ Deep Packet Recovery System, a Transport Stream compliant video/audio transport system supporting hardware encoders and decoders. The DPR system supports both Single Program Transport Stream (SPTS) and Multiple Program Transport Stream (MPTS) with ATSC PSIP tables.
DPR provides bi-directional transport with 256-bit AES encryption for video, VoIP, high fidelity audio, LAN, and ATSC with PSIP, all with low latency, QoS and network management. This is a solution for many applications. Video transport can be SD or HD, MPEG-2 or H.264, IP and ASI based streams are supported. To further enhance the network, SAS can offer Ethernet switches, encrypted tunnels, bandwidth aggregation devices, VoIP, LAN, and high fidelity audio for both fixed facility and mobile applications. The system addresses video, voice and data signal transport.
“DPR delivery is different than a file based transport such a Flash, Windows Media or Akamai streaming. DPR is standards compliant real time, full motion/frame rate, high resolution video using hardware encoders and decoders instead of decoding video and audio inside a browser embedded software decoder running on and displayed on a PC,” explains Rick Cabalka, Vice President of Sales for Superior Access Solutions.
“Superior Access Solutions uses the Adtec Digital mediaHUB-HD 422 encoder and Soloist-HD-Pro decoder for outstanding broadcast quality and low latency encoding and decoding. With Adtec and H.264 compression we can reliably transport HD video over 6 Mbps pipes. It supports both Single Program Transport Stream and Multiple Program Transport Stream with ATSC PSIP tables. It allows bi-directional transport with 256-bit AES encryption for video, VoIP, high fidelity audio, LAN; all with low latency, QoS and network management. DPR technology is ideal for CDN, STL, ENG and interactive video applications.”
The Deep Packet Recovery (DPR) system provides real-time, full motion, transport stream compliant video over the internet. It offers broadcasters and high end video users the opportunity to take advantage of inexpensive and ubiquitous internet service. Thanks to remote network management and intelligent buffer management software, Superior Access can deliver error free video. The software deals with impairments and best effort service of the internet, and integrated Remote Network Management system provides complete control of all devices for network access, monitoring, storage, distribution and status reporting. This system provides constantly check-point network performance in resolutions of every one second for all network devices and the internet carrier service.
Offering the highest-quality and most flexible encoding features of Adtec’s seasoned encoder line-up; the mediaHUB-HD 422 is a High and Standard Definition multi-CODEC work-horse. With the ability to encode any combination of HD or SD, MPEG 2 or MPEG 4 AVC with 4:2:0 or 4:2:2 color space, the mediaHUB-HD 422 supports past, present and future requirements. With support for 40 encoding profiles and auto-detection capability for resolution and frame rate, this product can hit the ground running regardless of your application... Contribution, Distribution or Studio Encoding! Its rugged design and standard LCD front panel for status and configuration makes it ideal for mobile contribution applications while the on-board web-based control application offers ease of use for distribution and studio encoding. This all-in-one rack mountable unit is designed with standards compliance in mind and can easily be integrated with other leading broadcast gear.
The Soloist-HD Pro is a broadcast quality High Definition MPEG 2 and AVC decoder. Multi-CODEC decoding has never been easier or more reliable. The Soloist-HD Pro supports ASI, GIGE and Hard Drive Transport Stream decoding. Video outputs include D1 (composite), HDMI with HDCP and HD-SDI with embedded audio. Decode MPEG 2 SD 422, HD 420, AVC SD and HD video. Audio decoding includes a single stereo channel of Dolby Digital, Dolby 5.1*, MPEG 1 Layer 2 and AAC-LC audio. Output broadcast quality video with embedded stereo audio on the HD-SDI interface and to consumer monitors with the HDMI interface. Composite D1 video and balanced analog audio are also supported for legacy NTSC or PAL environments. The decoder can down convert HD 1080i or 720 P to Composite or SDI.
