MediaKind RX8330


Product Overview

The Perfect Choice for a Large Network

The RX8330 is the perfect receive device for distribution of video services throughout a large network. The RX8330 provides the most up-to-date feature-set, combining maximum transmission efficiency with easy remote management of the receiver population.

Descrambling for Content Turn-Around

The RX8330 provides the capability to descramble single or multiple services to feed content turn-around systems enabling

cost-conscious, efficient transcode systems.

Broadcast Efficiency

The RX8330 in combination with MediaKind’s MPEG-4 AVP encoders leads to a highly efficient video distribution system. Combined with the additional 30 percent increase in channel capacity of DVB-S2 the RX8330 allows operators to achieve three times the amount of content through a transponder.

Multi-format Decoding

The RX8330 decodes all major SD video formats in use today providing complete flexibility for daily operations. The versatility that the RX8330 decoder provides makes it a “safe choice” for companies that are beginning to transmit MPEG-4 AVC SD but also continue to work in MPEG-2 SD. With the RX8330 they can migrate at their own pace.

Simplified Control and Lower Cost of Operations

Organizations with large populations of RX8330 receivers and other MediaKind receivers can simplify control by integrating with Director by MediaKind. Director provides remote, over-air, single-view control from a central location, reducing the need for on-site local operators.

  • Multi-service descrambling capability for Common Interface, BISS and Director CA systems
  • Multi-Service filtering and stream splitting

DVB-S2 Higher Order Modulation Value Pack (RX83XX/SWO/VP/HOM)

The DVB-S2 demodulation capability in RX8330 can be further Increased by adding the DVB-S2 Higher Order Modulation Value Pack. This Value Pack adds:

  • DVB-S2 16APSK and 32APSK higher order modulation

IP Output Value Pack (RX83XX/SWO/VP/IP)

Enables the IP outputs on the RX8330/BAS/IPOUT/A base unit. Provides IP TS output, MPE high speed data de-encapsulation.

The MediaKind RX8330 Distribution Receiver provides feature-rich multi-format standard definition decoding capability with high quality SDI output for video distribution applications. The RX8330 gives the user access to technologies to allow for the most cost-effective and bandwidth transmissions possible while ensuring the highest standards of reliability and video quality.

The RX8330 offers both ASI and DVB-S2 capable satellite input interfaces. As security of content is always of paramount importance, compatibility with popular CA systems including DVB Common Interface is provided.

The RX8330 shows its true class through its capability for multi-format decoding of all SD 4:2:0 video standards combined with high quality SDI digital video and analog video outputs. This capability is further enhanced by the RX8330’s ability to receive, and down-convert HD video to SD providing an SD output for broadcast or monitoring.

For systems that stay in the compressed domain, decrypted transport streams can be handed off into digital networks through a choice of both ASI or optional IP output interfaces.
