ProView 7100

The industry’s most powerful IRD meets the industry’s leading video compression


Harmonic’s ProView™ 7100 is the industry’s first single-rack-unit, scalable, multiformat integrated receiver-decoder (IRD), transcoder and MPEG stream processor. Leveraging Harmonic expertise in Intelligent Function Integration™, the ProView 7100 adds broadcast-quality SD/HD MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC 4:2:0/4:2:2 10-bit decoding and video transcoding to the feature-rich ProView IRD platform, allowing content providers, broadcasters, cable MSOs and telcos to easily and cost-effectively streamline their workflows and decrease operating costs.

With an advanced and dense multichannel descrambler, the ProView 7100 simplifies the deployment of (or migration to) an all-IP headend solution and powers the launch of added-value services. The flexible hardware design is easily reconfigured with firmware upgrades, enabling seamless adaptation to new inbound video formats and codecs, such as MPEG-4 AVC and HEVC.


    • Fully integrated platform combines all headend reception functionality with any-to-any remultiplexing
    • MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC SD/HD 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 10-bit decoding
    • HEVC decoding of 1080p60 media
    • Four TS descramblers with four integrated DVB-CI slots
    • High-quality H.264-to-MPEG-2 transcoding with down-conversion option

ProView 7100 Features

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.


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.

High-Fidelity Decoding

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. Harmonic’s unique deterministic SFN remultiplexing (DSR) technology saves up to 90% of satellite or IP bandwidth and increases 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.
