The GT-3 MBR Transcoder is a 3-gigapixel multiple bitrate transcoder that utilizes an advanced hardware-based compression engine and supports the full set of SD and HD inputs and outputs. Thus, it can deliver multiple format and bitrate video streams for display on any type of screen. Operators can deliver the programming consumers want - live HD broadcasts, DVR media, and on-demand content - to an array of devices.
Specifically, the GT-3, which received an honorable mention designation from Diamonds judges, supports up to 24 HD input channels and up to 192 total output streams. It processes up to 3 billion pixels of video content every second, which is equivalent to 48 full resolution output HD streams. And it provides more than six times the density of legacy software-based MBR solutions and dramatic improvements over MBR hardware solutions, ARRIS says. The processing performance and high density results in energy efficiency, cost savings and less space used in the headend.www.arrisi.comSee them at Cable-Tec Expo, Booth 868Return to the BTR Diamond Technology Reviews Elite.
