(San Diego, California--August 30, 2011) DVEO, the broadcast division of Computer Modules, Inc. (CMI), is now shipping their professional high definition DVB-T/DVB-T2 frequency agile receiver and H.264 and MPEG-2 decoder. The Virenza-T+T2™ will be featured at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam, September 9-13, at Stand 2.A48.
Suitable for both IPTV and European broadcast distribution, the Virenza-T+T2 demodulates the DVB-T and DVB-T2 formats used by broadcast professionals in Europe, Asia, and parts of Africa and South America. It decodes both H.264 and MPEG-2 video formats to SMPTE 259M (SD-SDI), SMPTE 292 (HD-SDI), or YPrPb.
The Virenza-T+T2 supports 576i/480i, 576p/480p, 720p, and 1080i decoding. Video inputs can be DVB-T, DVB-T2, DVB-ASI, or IP (with Pro-MPEG FEC). An optional second DVB-T+T2 RF input is available. Video outputs include HD-SDI, SDI, DVB-ASI, YPrPb, RGB, or composite for monitoring. Audio output includes analog, embedded audio, AES-3 id, Dolby Prologic® compatible stereo audio output, or Dolby Digital® AC-3 or PCM stereo audio (selectable over BNC connector).
“The Virenza T+T2 is a versatile and cost efficient DVB-T and DVB-T2 receiver. It also works extremely well as a professional H.264 and MPEG-2 decoder,” stated Laszlo Zoltan, Sales Manager for DVEO. “Several of our European customers use it for repurposing content, such as converting DVB-T2 to SDI. A very useful new feature is a CAM module and support for BISS (Basic Interoperable Scrambling System) descrambling, which allows broadcasters to receive encrypted transport streams and decrypt them with permission.”
The system is also available with an optional DVB-S/DVB-S2 tuner instead of a DVB-T+T2 tuner.
