The new ARRIS DSR-7401 Transcoder IRD from ARRIS provides a high-quality cost effective solution for service continuity as Programmers sunset their satellite SD service distribution. Utilizing the latest modulation and video compression technologies,the DSR-7401 down-converts and transcodes up to 12 input HD video sources simultaneously across four satellite transponders, all from a single Programmer. Customizable multiplex creation with Statmux output provides highly flexible transport stream grooming options and ensures delivery of the highest quality video.
Support for HEVC and MPEG-4 video compression inputs combined with DVB-S2, DVB-S2x and 8PSK Turbocodedemodulation enables full compatibility with the latest satellite distribution networks. The flexibility offered by 4 active RF tuners with retune capability simplifies satellite network design and permits trouble-free network modifications.
The high density transcoding enables the DSR-7401 to replace up to 12 single channel satellite receivers. The efficient use of rack space and low power consumption make this transcoder IRD an ideal solution for today’s modern digital headends.
