The Cisco D9824 Advanced Multi Decryption Receiver is designed for satellite content distribution applications requiring DVB-S and DVB-S2 reception capabilities with advanced digital outputs for digital tier program distribution. A built-in decoder is capable of decoding a MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 AVC High Definition (HD) program for analog monitoring, or a Standard Definition (SD) down-conversion for composite. Decoding of an MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 AVC SD program is also available for analog. With the support of decrypting up to 32 PowerVu® encrypted programs, the D9824 receiver allows users to efficiently receive and distribute multiple programs through their network using a single receiver.
Digital Program Distribution
The ASI transport output provides a number of output modes including the capability of carrying decrypted programs for digital tier distribution. This helps ensure that compressed video programs are efficiently distributed to households equipped with digital set-top boxes.
Digital Program Mapping
The Digital Program Mapping allows programmers to “transparently” substitute programs at the uplink. It maintains predictable and compliant transport output during service replacement, Network Information Table (NIT) re-tune, and channel changes, including force tunes. This feature remaps the PID information from the primary service to an alternate service, allowing downstream devices to continue to operate without headend operator intervention. This helps ensure availability of alternate programming in the digital tier.
The Digital Program Insertion (DPI) information is available with the video and audioPIDs (Packet Identifiers) for external ad insertion in a compressed digital format.
