BE-IRD-5503 Integrated Receiver/Decoder

The BE-IRD-5503 is a versatile third generation 5500-class integrated receiver and decoder for broadcasters, cable operators, and telecoms with Genlock capability for accurate frame and color synchronization. A highly flexible professional choice, the 5503 can decode all video formats (HD or SD, MPEG-2 or MPEG-4), making it the perfect solution for customers migrating from MPEG-2 SD to MPEG-4 HD. A wide range of input/output options, together with a built-in Multiplexer/Filter, allows users to create highly customized transport streams. Two PCMCIA Common Interface card slots support a variety of Conditional Access systems, including Conax, Cryptoworks, Irdeto, Mediaguard, NDS, SECA, Viacross, and others. LAN control and monitoring can done using the unit's built-in Monitor Center facility, or through standard SNMP-based network management systems. image
