DSR-7400 HD Series Commercial Integrated Ultra High Density Transcoder

HEVC and MPEG-4, 4k satellite transcoder


The DSR-7400 HD Series Ultra High Density Transcoder platform provides a high quality cost effective solution for Programmers looking to maximize satellite capacity and provide a future-proofed path to the addition of high value 4K UHD video services. Available models include the DSR-7403 with capacity for 3 HD and 3 SD transcoded outputs and DSR-7412 with capacity for 12 HD and 12 SD transcoded outputs.

Using the latest DVB-S2x modulation and HEVC video compression technologies, the DSR-7400 HD Series has 4 active RF tuners that can simultaneously process transport streams from up to 4 satellites. When used for Ultra High Definition video programming DSR-7400 HD Series products can pass through the received 4K program services and transcode to HD or SD MPEG-4, MPEG-2 for distribution to legacy set-top Engineered with industry standard interfaces such as RF and ASI inputs plus dual GigE and ASI outputs DSR-7400 HD Series products seamlessly integrate with existing headend equipment. The front panel confidence monitor reduces the need for rack mount monitors and offers simple on device menu navigation.
