Tandberg Television will be demonstrating its new professional integrated receiver decoder at the upcoming NAB Show in Las Vegas, to be held April 14-17.

Optimized for specific high-volume video distribution applications, Tandberg’s RX8300 series is designed to simplify content acquisition for cable, satellite and telco operators in the all-digital future of TV broadcasting.

Both the RX8310 Distribution Receiver and the RX8320 ATSC Broadcast Receiver provide an RF demodulator combined with industry-standard ASI transport stream input for network delivery flexibility. Transport stream output is provided as a standard feature for content turnaround into digital cable, satellite and telco broadcast networks.

The RX8300 range has the capability to provide single or multi-service descrambling, as well as multi-format MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC 4:2:0 video decoding. Additionally, high-definition (HD) services are down-converted and output as standard-definition (SD) video.

Tandberg also announced last week that its OpenStream Digital Services Platform is being deployed by its business partner, Star Communication Network Technology Co. Ltd., for three regional cable operators in China. The Tandberg systems will enable the introduction of on-demand television services in Shandong province, Gansu province and Yangquan city this summer.
