Modular Receiver Decoder

The new MRD 4400 Receiver Decoder is the latest in Sencore’s long line of professional integrated receiver/decoders for distribution and monitoring applications. Latest-generation components ensure that the 4400 provides the most complete feature set and the best value for a broad swath of common receiver/decoder applications. The product supports decoding of SD or HD video, encoded as either MPEG-2 or H.264, as well as up to four audio services. The additional audio handling capability makes the MRD 4400 the perfect solution for video distributors looking to meet upcoming descriptive video requirements, while continuing to support surround, stereo, and SAP services. As customer demands evolve, units purchased for SD decoding can be upgraded to HD via a simple software license, and with the included digital video output, video monitoring is as easy as finding the nearest standard consumer television or PC monitor. With built-in ASI input/output capability, as well as available satellite and IP interfaces, the 4400 is adaptable to most decoder use cases. The receiver also maintains Sencore’s long tradition of ease of use, with a web interface accessible via all major browsers and complete control of the unit via the front panel keypad, and is backed by Sencore’s best-in-class ProCare support.
