The Cisco® D9858 Advanced Receiver Transcoder can deliver MPEG-4 high definition (HD) services to MPEG-2 cable television (CATV) headends. It extends the distribution options for MPEG-4 Advanced Video Coding (AVC) HD from solely MPEG-4 environments to existing MPEG-2 networks. Support for simultaneous dual-channel decryption and transcoding provides density for locations requiring more then a single channel.
The Cisco D9858 can be used to provide a down-converted standard definition (SD) MPEG-2 program instead of one or both of the available HD transcoded programs. Video and two audio outputs are available for analog down-conversion for one of the decrypted incoming MPEG-4 HD programs.
- Capable of DVB-S/S2 reception
- Supports current and future MPEG AVC HD and MPEG-2 HD video reception needs by converting MPEG AVC input feeds to MPEG-2 HD as well as simultaneous downconversion of content to MPEG-2 SD and decode to analog
- Future proofs investment with ability to pass through of original MPEG AVC content
