Scopus Video Networks has integrated its IRD-2900 integrated receiver decoders with Neotion’s MPEG-4 conditional access module (CAM). The combined product targets broadcasters and cable, terrestrial, telco, and satellite operators and is immediately available to the Scopus customer base.
The plug-in module, a unique version of Neotion's MPEG-4 CAM, enables operators using Scopus' MPEG-2 IRD-2900s to perform a field upgrade to an H.264 system.
The combination can perform re-encoding, format conversion monitoring, and content distribution. The solution also enables cable and telco operators to distribute H.264 content to edges where a full decoding to analog is performed, saving up to 50 percent in bandwidth over satellite and IP infrastructures, by Scopus’ estimation.
