TANDBERG Television introduced a professional multiformat MPEG-2/MPEG-4 AVC SD/HD decoder that will enable network operators and broadcasters to deliver both SD and HD content from studio to studio and across networks to regional head-ends and affiliates.

The receiver is capable of decoding both MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC, HD or SD. It comes with a standard ASI interface and can in addition be fitted with an integrated high performance DVB-S2 demodulator giving an additional potential 30% bandwidth savings.
