Modulus Video Announces MPEG-4 AVC Receiver Encoders

Modulus Video introduced a new class of video receiver/encoder systems for direct broadcast satellite (DBS) and IPTV headend operations. The new MRE2000 is a single 1RU chassis that incorporates direct RF signal input, demodulation, decoding and signal processing along with MPEG-4 AVC high definition (HD) and standard definition (SD) video encoding.

The MRE2000 family complements Modulus Video's ME2000 family of dedicated HD/SD MPEG-4 AVC video encoders. The MRE2000 eliminates the need for external demodulator, receiver and decoder systems by providing built-in reception functions.

Modulus Video said its new product family will ultimately include support for the following: Terrestrial RF NTSC, Digital Terrestrial ATSC and DVB-T, Satellite DVB-S/S2, and Direct MPEG-2 from UDP/IP.
