Harmonic launches new IRD

Video technology provider Harmonic has launched a new integrated receiver decoder platform ahead of next week’s NAB show.

The ProView 7100 provides transcoding, transport stream descrambling, and MPEG stream processing in a single rack unit. The unit’s SD and HD MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC video decoders and transcoders are designed to enable a range of transport stream distribution and contribution applications, including DVB descrambling and digital turnaround processing. The ProView 7100 performs multiformat video decoding with up to four stereo pairs of audio decoding, descrambles up to four transport streams, and transcodes up to eight channels, according to Harmonic.
