MediaKind RX9500


Channel Density

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.

Common Interface Descrambling

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.

Simple Architecture

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.

One System, One Management Platform

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.

Why MediaKind

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.
