In the broadcast and broadband world, optimizing bandwidth in your distribution channels is of utmost importance. The Model D9032 Encoder is designed to deliver high-quality MPEG-2 video while using very limited bandwidth. Used in either constant or variable bit rate or in a closed loop statistical multiplex mode, the encoder delivers clean and sharp pictures.
The D9032 Encoder includes PreSightPlus™ technology – a unique new DSP-based pre-processing architecture that carries out multiple pre-processing steps to help optimize the encoding process. PreSightPlus algorithms perform three functions addressing different issues in a compression system:
- Adaptive and motion compensated noise reduction
- Auto-concatenation enabling the encoder to lock the encoding GOP to that of the preceding encoder
- Pre-analysis for optimal dual pass encoding
PreSightPlus Pre-analysis combined with the Regulus™ Statistical Multiplexing Controller is an industry leading solution for bandwidth-saving encoding using closed loop statistical multiplexing technology including dual statmux pool support. The dual pass architecture of the encoder provides detailed information to the statistical multiplex controller, allowing it to make better bit rate allocation decisions.
Control of the encoder is supported via a front panel interface, an on-board web application, an optional ROSA™ driver, and an open communication protocol (SNMP). Transport output is provided via ASI outputs as well as through an IP (100Base-T) streaming output.
The extensive features allow the D9032 Encoder to address a wide range of applications such as contribution, cable headends, DTH or DVB-T play-outs and IP headends.
