Modulus Video intros new MRE2000 MPEG-4 receiver encoder configurations

Modulus Video today introduced several new configurations of its MRE2000 series receiver encoder, each designed to meet the unique needs of telecommunications operators. With configurations to support both high definition (HD) and standard definition (SD) video, the new models provide telcos with the video headend functionality needed to quickly and cost-effectively launch IPTV services. The new products will be on display at NXTcomm, June 19-21, McCormick Place, Chicago, Booth 1119.

“With these new Modulus Video MRE2000 configurations, we are completely putting to rest the idea that the IPTV opportunity is only accessible to big operators,” said Bob Wilson, Chairman and CEO of Modulus Video. “With the performance and value offered by these revolutionary products, the door stands wide open for any telco operator to quickly deploy a complete video headend and begin delivering compelling SD and HD services.”

Modulus Video MRE2000 systems dramatically simplify headends by uniquely incorporating in a single 1RU chassis, direct RF signal input, demodulation, decoding and signal processing with the world’s most sophisticated MPEG-4 AVC HD and SD video encoding.

The latest MRE2000 systems provide cost conscious telecommunications operators with an efficient video headend with fewer components, greater reliability, reduced cost and the best video quality. The new models introduced today include:

Two new HD Receiver Encoder configurations:
MRE2511 series offers support for direct MPEG-2 over UDP compressed input, along with optional ASI support.
MRE2521 series offers support for analog off-air, digital terrestrial and direct MPEG-2 inputs.

Two new SD-only Receiver Encoder configurations:
MRE2011 series offers support for direct MPEG-2 over UDP compressed input, along with optional ASI support.
MRE2021 series offers support for analog off-air, digital terrestrial and direct MPEG-2 inputs.

The entire MRE2000 family of receiver encoders can be ordered immediately.
