CV 4:2

24 Channel H.264 to MPEG-2 Transcoder

SKU: 6557 Categories: , Tags: ,

Product Overview

The CV 4:2 is a professional grade, low cost per stream transcoder that can transcode up to twenty-four (24) HD or SD programs from H.264 (MPEG-4) to MPEG-2 output in a 1RU form factor. The unit accepts unicast H.264 IP video transport streams and re-encodes the video content to HD or SD MPEG-2 transport streams for IP Unicast delivery.

Blonder Tongue’s cutting edge video compression technology supports low video bit rates while maintaining high picture quality. The CV 4:2 provides an easy to use interface and the ability to download and upload a configuration file for multi-unit deployments.

The transcoder can be configured to receive up to twenty-four (24) H.264 AES-128 encrypted IP channels from Technicolor’s COM3000/2000 satellite receivers. The CV 4:2 decrypts the AES-128 content and transcodes the decrypted H.264 content into MPEG-2 while preserving DirecTV “forensic watermarking”. The content is then returned to the Technicolor COM3000/2000 devices. The CV 4:2 will also accept “in the clear” H.264 content.
