Simplified IP Headend Deployment
The flexible, high-density, multichannel ProView 7100 allows users to deploy an IP headend easily and cost effectively — and launch added-value services such as HD and video on demand with excellent video quality. ProView 7100 supports a rich set of input options that range from multiple DVB-S/S2 to IP and DVB-ASI, as well as four common interfaces.
A powerful and energy-saving solution, ProView 7100 performs multiformat video decoding with up to four stereo pairs of audio decoding, descrambles up to four transport streams, and transcodes up to eight channels — significantly lowering operating expenses. Its powerful capabilities allow users to distribute superior-quality, multiformat video by leveraging Harmonic’s H.264 and MPEG-2 video codec expertise.
The ProView 7100 offers integrated MPEG-2 4:2:0 8-bit, and AVC and HEVC 4:2:2 10-bit precision decoding for DVB-S/S2, DVB-ASI and IP applications, enabling content providers to decode content up to 1080p60** with pristine picture fidelity.
Versatile Capabilities, Reduced Bandwidth Requirements
ProView 7100 performs any-to-any transcoding of up to eight channels of H.264 to MPEG-2, allowing programmers to efficiently distribute superior-quality video content while using minimal satellite transponder capacity. Content can be received and transcoded to any resolution required. In addition, Harmonic’s unique deterministic SFN remultiplexing (DSR) technology can save up to 90% of satellite or IP bandwidth and increase architecture flexibility in regional DVB-T SFN distribution networks.
Expanding Channel Lineup
By integrating DVB-S/S2 demodulation with the streaming of descrambled content over IP, ProView 7100 enables operators to quickly and cost-effectively launch new services while leveraging their existing IP or legacy ASI infrastructure.
User-Friendly System Management
The ProView 7100 can be simply configured through a stand-alone interface or with Harmonic’s NMX™ Digital Service Manager for mass configuring, monitoring and automated redundancy in centralized or distributed architectures. Large populations of ProView 7100 IRDs can also be centrally controlled with the Harmonic DMS™ video distribution management system.
