Professional DVBS/S2/S2X MPEG-2/H.264 SD/HD Dual Integrated Receiver Decoder

Interact with this product in a Layout Tool:

The 7882IRD2 Series is the basis of a professional platform for receiving, demodulating and decoding digital DVBS/S2/S2X satellite signals. With a compact, modular form-factor, the 7882IRD2 represents one of the highest density and most flexible solutions in the industry. The 7882IRD2 may be mounted in the Evertz 7801FR-HP and 570FR-HF enclosures, providing a high-density, modular solution. Options for an innovative removable front control panel and 1RU chassis also allow the 7882IRD2 to be packaged in the traditional IRD2 form-factor, while maintaining all of the benefits of modularity.

Applications include signal reception for broadcasters, cable, DTH and IPTV providers, or any other small to large head-end operators who need to receive and utilize or re-distribute satellite content, and also receive and distribute off-air local contents.

The 7882IRD2 series provides ASI and IP outputs, ideal for turnaround, transcoding, monitoring or other applications where the received signal remains in the compressed domain. For baseband output, the 7882IRD2 utilizes an advanced decoder with support for both MPEG-2 and H.264/AVC, SD or HD encoded signals, optionally up to 4:2:2 10-bit.

In addition to a quad-RF input, the 7882IRD2 also provides inputs for IP and ASI signals, making it a future-proof, universal reception platform for signals delivered over satellite, fiber and other network media. Monitoring parameters such as EsNo ratio, RF power, BER and packet errors present a convenient solution for broadcasters and cable companies who wish to not only receive, but also remotely monitor signal quality. Also, these parameters as well as full monitoring and control of the IRD are relayed over SNMP, for convenient remote access using Evertz own VistaLINK® PRO SNMP monitoring and control package.

For applications requiring decryption, the 7882IRD2 provides two slots for installation of a customer-supplied conditional access module. DVB-CI compliant conditional access modules and formats are supported.
