As analog content gets phased out the right digital content delivery and receiving system becomes increasingly important. Digital content can get complex and if the data is not encoded with the right application it will not get delivered as it was intended. IDC (News - Alert), International Datacasting Corporation is introducing the new HMR5542 Professional Video Receiver at the IBC International Broadcasting Convention 2012 in Amsterdam. The new receiver is seen as a revolutionary tool in the delivery of professional digital content.
The receiver meets the demand of digital satellite news gathering (DSNG) providers who cover events in different environments. It can be applied for sporting events, entertainment and news coverage to provide video content contribution for broadcast with real time program distribution.
It supports full HD up to 1080p60, MPEG-2 4:2:2, MPEG-4 8 and 10 bit 4:2:2 for the best performance of content delivery. The receiver can be used in the broadcast contribution and distribution where SD and HD, satellite and IP and BISS are required.
"IDC has developed a high performance integrated solution for the world's premiere television broadcasters," said Frederick Godard, president and CEO. "The HMR5442 receiver builds on the success of our TITAN encoder to provide unparalleled image quality for the coverage of live events and real-time video content distribution."
The HMR5440 and HMR5442 have multiple video support in the HD and SD formats including NTSC, PAL and digital SDI for standard definition as well as HD-SDI and component video for HD. The system automatically senses video and process the content as MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 in SD or HD.
