A multi-codec, multi-service, flexibly deployable professional receiver decoder specifically developed to meet the needs of the contribution market

MediaKind’s RX1 is a multi-codec, multi-service, flexibly deployable professional receiver/decoder specifically designed to address the needs of the contribution & Distribution market as a UHD HEVC decoder or providing Dense HD decoding. It is similar to our RX8200 (legacy product) but with more capability & functionality.

Why MK RX1?

A COTS platform that creates endless new possibilities

The flexibility of MK RX1’s software and application-based design will ultimately enable operators to create a multitude of different processing functions and capabilities on a Common Off The Shelf (COTS) platform and cloud-based network[solutions]. Use cases range from ad-hoc events and multi-screen viewing to Contribution applications, where users need different types of cloud media processing functions at different times and different locations without having to invest in extra hardware or products.

MK RX1 is an efficient way for Content Providers as well as B2B Service Providers and Network Operators to deliver high quality content across Contribution Networks, with the lowest latency in the industry. In fact, MediaKind Content Processing’s initial application is a very low latency UHDTV decode function, enabling new revenue streams and a more compelling consumer experience.

The initial UHDTV decode application will enable high value, quality content to be delivered at high bit rates and throughput, while maintaining integrity for content manipulation use cases across the video delivery chain.
