Harmonic Debuts Integrated Receiver-Decoder With HEVC

Harmonic introduced the first single-rack, multiformat, integrated receiver-decoder (IRD), transcoder and MPEG stream processor to support the HEVC standard, enabling video content and service providers to decode HEVC compressed streams up to 1080p60 resolution.

The 1-RU chassis ProView 7100 IRD platform offers broadcast-quality SD/HD MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC and HEVC decoding, in addition to MPEG-2 and AVC transcoding.  It supports AVC HD and HEVC 4:2:2 10-bit decoding up to 1080p60. The HEVC decoding capabilities are available to new and existing ProView 7100 customers via a simple software update and license key.

"The ability to decode HEVC compressed streams is becoming important for video content and service providers as they prepare to deliver high-quality, bandwidth-intensive services like Ultra HD and 4K," said Bart Spriester, senior vice president, video products, Harmonic. "As the world's first IRD platform capable of decoding HEVC content, the ProView 7100 continues to prove that it's the best solution for content reception applications, providing TV operators with the flexibility, scalability, video compression efficiency and low total-cost-of-ownership they need to cost-effectively deliver video offerings with amazing quality now and in the future."
