IRD – Satellite or ATSC Decoder to SDI, IP, ASI, Closed Captions

Universal Broadcast IRD Decoder

Thor H-HD-IRD series Integrated Receiver Decoders have several applications for decoding program content to broadcast quality video.  Equipped with every major video signal output, including HD-SDI, Thor H-HD-IRD units can provide HD video to any display or professional video system.  Also available are modern digital audio outputs on both optical Toslink and XLR connectors.  Dolby AC/3 audio pass through is standard, and closed caption support for both 608 and 708 captioning systems is present.  The V3 platform adds a front panel LCD video display for confidence monitoring, as well as an internal program multiplexer for combining content from both ASI and IP sources simultaneously.  The web interface displays all available programs and corresponding PID’s.  Each program can be independently added to either the ASI or IP outputs.

All selected programs are multiplexed into a single MPTS output.  Additionally, the IP output can be configured for up to 32 SPTS single program stream outputs, each with different address and port settings.  This allows the V3 system to be used as an intelligent ASI to IP or RF to IP Gateway with add drop and ASI video signal multiplexing capabilities.  Combined multi program transport streams carried over IP can also be separated into their corresponding single program streams.  The RF tuner can be configured for QAM, 8VSB (ATSC), DVB-T, DVB-C, or DVB-S2 signal sources.  Two CAS card slots allow decoded of encrypted programing.

Thor HD-IRD units can be used for converting broadband programing to uncompressed HD video, as well as multiplexing and retransmitting programs to both ASI and IP outputs.  Thor HD-IRD systems are a reliable and versatile platform for broadcast program decoding and TS protocol conversion
