What our customers say

This is the first time we have attempted to decode 4:2:2 video and to ensure the successful delivery of such high value, live content, we naturally opted to extend our long-standing partnership with Avicom Engenharia and MediaKind. Through the acquisition of MediaKind’s RX8200 Advanced Modular Receivers earlier this year, we were able to seamlessly configure and tailor the units into our infrastructure by the time the Games began in late July. The implementation of this IRD provided the necessary functionality to meet our operational requirements andenabled the deliveryof a high-class broadcast of this prestigious sporting event.

Ultimate Efficiency

The RX8200 Advanced Modular Receiver offers ultimate bandwidth efficiency for satellite transmissions by incorporating the option for the new DVB-S2 Extensions (DVB-S2X) standard. DVB-S2X offers up to 20% bit rate efficiency for typical video applications.

As a true multi-format decoder, the RX8200 can offer MPEG-4 AVC 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 High Definition decoding in all industry-standard compression formats, including HEVC. By using HEVC compression, combined with DVB-S2X (for satellite applications), Operators can benefit from a step-change in transmission efficiency.

The RX8200 protects content to the fullest extent by combining secure, smart-card-less conditional access functionality with forensic watermarking capability to uniquely and imperceptibly mark decoded content – allowing any down-stream leaked content to be traced back to source.

The RX8200 Advanced Modular Receiver offers the user total connectivity through the capability to provide satellite, ASI and IP transport stream inputs – including the latest SMPTE 2022-7 Seamless Switching technology, all within a single unit. With this flexibility the user is confident that their initial receiver investment is capable of adapting to a fast changing industry.

The RX8200 has the capability to provide the ultimate feature-set of MPEG-4 HD, 4:2:2 10-bit 1080p50/60 allowing broadcasters to achieve the highest possible video quality.

Broadcasters are increasingly demanding lowest latency for contribution applications. MediaKind offers the complete low latency suite of tools for the user – whether that be high quality MPEG-4 decoding or the latest HEVC compression modes for optimal efficiency for satellite applications.
