Compact, powerful decoder & descrambler

ProView™ is a compact, single-channel commercial decoder and descrambler for your general-purpose primary distribution applications. Enhance your contribution workflows with powerful decoding and descrambling capabilities for ultimate efficiency.

Expand channel lineup

By integrating DVB-S/S2/S2X 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.

Preserve pristine video quality

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.
