The First Professional HEVC IRD Broadcasters' requirements for differing equipment configurations and the many and varied ways in which receivers are used is driving the need for a flexible receiver platform. The RX8200 Advanced Modular Receiver has been designed to precisely meet these requirements. By allowing each individual RX8200 to be configured and tailored to the user’s precise needs the perfect balance of functionality and cost can be achieved, resulting in a unit having only the required features without the additional expense of superfluous connectivity or functionality. The RX8200 offers a vast and sophisticated array of configuration possibilities allowing it to cover a broad range of applications. The RX8200 can be tailored to standard definition or high definition uses with MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 decode technology in both 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 modes whilst connectivity into the receiver is achieved with DVB-S2 satellite, IP and ASI options. The high powered processing capabilities of the RX8200 enable the unit to be simply and easily upgraded in the field with additional software options to increment the functionality at any point after initial installation. The following features are available as standard: • 1 x ASI input transport stream input • Front panel control • Web browser and SNMP remote control • Alarm relay & SCTE 35 controlled contact closures for ad-insertion signaling • Many sophisticated, additional hardware and software based modules available as options RX8200 Business Benefits •Total Connectivity The RX8200 Advanced Modular Receiver offers the user total connectivity through the capability to provide DVB-S2 satellite, IP and ASI transport stream inputs, all within a single unit. With this flexibility the user is confident that their initial receiver investment is capable of adapting to a fast-changing industry. •Multi-format Decoding With more broadcasters joining the rapid transition from MPEG-2 to MPEG-4 AVC, the RX8200 has been specifically designed to grow in capability to match those needs. As a true multi-format decoder, the RX8200 can offer MPEG-4 AVC 4:2:0 High Definition decoding allowing broadcasters to reap the benefits from the 50% bit-rate savings that the format offers; and with more and more contribution feeds also making a similar move from MPEG-2 to MPEG-4 AVC in the 4:2:2 world the RX8200 also meets those needs. •Highest Quality The RX8200 Advanced Modular Receiver has the capability to provide the ultimate feature-set of MPEG-4 HD, 4:2:2 10-bit 1080p50/60 allowing broadcasters to achieve the highest possible video quality. The RX8200 also has the abiilty to enable compatibility for all broadcasters by deriving and outputting high quality 1080i, 720p or SD video from this reference format. •Lowest Latency Broadcasters are increasingly demanding lowest latency for contribution and news applications. Ericsson offers the complete low latency suite of tools for the user - whether that be high quality JPEG 2000 decoding for contribution over fiber applications or low latency MPEG-4 4:2:2 and 4:2:0 decoding for satellite applications.
