HARMONIC Proview 7100 Decoder RF 4 input Ip IP out HD out SN 161525063

Harmonic’s ProView™ 7100 is the industry’s first single-rack-unit, scalable, multiformat integrated receiver-decoder (IRD), transcoder and MPEG stream processor. Leveraging Harmonic expertise in Intelligent Function Integration™, the ProView 7100 adds broadcast-quality SD/HD MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC 4:2:0/4:2:2 10-bit decoding and video transcoding to the feature-rich ProView IRD platform, allowing content providers, broadcasters, cable MSOs and telcos to easily and cost-effectively streamline their workflows and decrease operating costs. For applications in which preserving pristine video quality is paramount, the ProView 7100 supports HEVC 4:2:2* 10-bit decoding of resolutions up to 1080p60.

The ProView 7100 IRD harnesses a flexible and modular design to address the vast spectrum of content reception applications, from decoding, descrambling and multiplexing of multiple transport streams to MPEG-4 to MPEG-2 transcoding. With an advanced and dense multichannel descrambler, the ProView 7100 simplifies the deployment of (or migration to) an all-IP headend solution and powers the launch of added-value services. The flexible hardware design is easily reconfigured with firmware upgrades, enabling seamless adaptation to new inbound video formats and codecs, such as MPEG-4 AVC and HEVC.

The ProView 7100 utilizes powerful processing capabilities to multiplex transport streams that include local and regional data, and also to perform deterministic multiplexing for SFN distribution. It supports the transcoding of up to eight channels of AVC to MPEG-2, allowing programmers to efficiently distribute superior-quality video content while using minimal satellite transponder capacity. Content can be received and transcoded to any resolution required.

A rich set of options includes the input of multiple DVB-S/S2/S2X, IP and DVB-ASI feed. Support for advanced content delivery redundancy schemes includes the ability to provide simultaneous primary satellite and backup IP network feeds.

Technical Details

Technical Benefits

Fully Integrated Platform

The ProView 7100 combines all headend reception functionality — such as multiple transport-stream descrambling, multiformat and codec decoding, and any-to-any transcoding — with full remultiplexing capabilities, including PID filtering, remapping and table regeneration.

High-Fidelity Decoding

The ProView 7100 offers integrated MPEG-2 4:2:0 8-bit and AVC and HEVC 4:2:2 10-bit precision decoding for DVB-S/S2, DVB-ASI and IP applications, enabling content providers to decode content up to 1080p60** with pristine picture fidelity.

Superior Transcoding

The ProView 7100 can be equipped with two decoding or transcoding cards for SD/HD MPEG-2 and AVC formats. Harmonic’s industry-leading compression algorithms assure the distribution of superior-quality video for all added-value services, including HD and VOD.

Expanded Input Options

Able to simultaneously receive content over DVB-S/S2, ASI and IP, the ProView 7100 allows operators to maximize flexibility and optimize redundancy schemes.

Support for All-IP Infrastructures

The ProView 7100, in combination with the integrated Harmonic FLEX® decoder, enables an all-IP headend architecture, resulting in a more scalable and lower-cost transition to IP-based services.

T2-MI Deframing to MPEG TS

The ProView 7100 converts the PLPs (physical layer pipes) in a T2-MI stream into a regular transport stream. Up to four simultaneous T2-MI-to-TS conversions can be performed, eliminating the need to distribute separate TS for baseband decoding and for feeding the headend.

Broadcast-Quality Down-Conversion

The ProView 7100 performs HD down-conversion and aspect ratio adaptation to generate broadcast-quality baseband analog video and audio that can be easily integrated with existing cable network infrastructures.

Friendly Management

The ProView 7100 can be simply configured through a stand-alone interface or with Harmonic’s NMX™ Digital Service Manager for mass configuring, monitoring and automated redundancy in centralized or distributed architectures.

Advanced DSR Processing

The ProView 7100 performs regional program insertion in a national common multiplex at each DVB-T SFN transmission site. DSR supports CBR and VBR content replacement or insertion of any number of programs or PIDs. A special EAS mode is provided for emergency alert program switching.
