MediaKind RX9500 Bulk Descrambler provides Cable, IPTV, and other Direct to Home operators with the capability to efficiently turn-around encrypted and free to air content from satellite platforms. The RX9500 allows operators to demodulate and descramble 10s or 100s of services from multiple satellite transponders within a high density, low rack unit occupancy solution.
The RX9500 forms part of MediaKind’s Multi-Platform Headend Solution, interfacing seamlessly with MediaKind’s encoders and transcoders. The RX9500 Bulk Descrambler is simple to set up and configure offering the benefit of a single management, control and monitoring solution for the complete turn-around system through MediaKind’s nCompass management platform.
The RX9500 Bulk Descrambler allows operators to turn-around 10s or hundreds of satellite delivered services within a high density, low rack occupancy solution. The RX9500 can be configured to process up to 6 satellite multiplexes of scrambled or free to air content.
RX9500 can also be equipped to descramble services presented on IP TS input.
The RX9500 Bulk Descrambler is able to descramble services via DVB Common Interface modules ensuring that all frequently used CA systems can be addressed. The RX9500 allows two CAMs to be used per satellite multiplex—ensuring that a high density of services can be descrambled and allows for multiple CA systems on a transponder.
The RX9500 Bulk Descrambler exemplifies the benefits of a simple architecture. Each satellite multiplex is processed as siloed modules without dependency on other inputs. Each descrambled or FTA channel is output as an easy to manage single program transport stream on IP interfaces allowing the down-stream equipment to effectively process the services.
Through MediaKind’s Multi-Platform Headend Solution operators can deploy a complete content turn-around solution—where each element can seamlessly interface with the other elements; all monitored and controlled by nCompass, as a single
overarching management platform.
The MediaKind RX9500 Bulk Descrambler provides all the necessary elements to acquire channel content for a DTH turn-around platform. More importantly the RX9500 forms part of a single, fully integrated, managed end-to-end system.
