Product ManualManual

Evertz' 7882IRDA-S2X series is a professional Integrated Receiver Decoder (IRD) platform for receiving, demodulating and decoding digital DVB-S/S2/S2X satellite signals. Applications include signal reception for broadcasters, cable, DTH/IPTV providers and any other small to large head-end operators who need to receive and utilize or re-distribute satellite content.

Leveraging inputs from low-cost public Internet sources, the 7882IRDA-S2X is able to receive feeds from terrestrial distribution networks, broadcast quality video networks or the cloud utilizing RIST and SRT technologies.

The 7882IRDA-S2X series utilizes an advanced decoder with support for MPEG-2, H.264/AVC and HEVC for SD, HD and 3G encoded signals up to 4:2:2 10-bit and HDR. SMPTE ST 2110 10GbE output is available for video, audio and ANC data transport across unique configurable multicast addresses.Flexible RF, ASI and IP inputs provides a future-proof solution also ideal for turnaround, transcoding, monitoring and other applications for signals delivered over satellite, fiber and other network media.

Designed with a modular hot-swappable form-factor, paired with Evertz' award-winning 7800 and 570 series enclosures, the 7882IRDA-S2X provides a neat and clean solution with all cabling at the rear of the frame. Dual redundant power supplies and fans are also hot-swappable from the front of the frame for quick replacement without compromising the integrity of critical signal paths.

An innovative removable front control panel is also available when paired with the 1RU chassis for a traditional IRD solution, while maintaining all of the benefits of modularity. Alternatively, an external control panel is also available for remote control of multiple units.

The 7882IRDA-S2X series also provides extensive monitoring of critical parameters such as RF power, lock status, EsNo ratio/margin, L-Band frequency, MER, BER, packet errors, constellations diagrams and more; this presents a convenient solution for broadcasters and cable companies who wish to not only receive, but also remotely monitor signal quality. These parameters, as well as full monitoring and control of the module are available through the web-browser and relayed over SNMP for use with third-party or Evertz' own VistaLINK® PRO network management system (NMS).
