TVG610 MPEG-4 Contribution Decoder


Product Description

The TVG610 MPEG-4 Contribution Decoder offers best-in-class video quality with MPEG-4 AVC 10-bit 4:2:2 decoding for SD and HD, combined with DVB-S/S2, ASI and IP input interfaces.

Designed for professional broadcast contribution, the TVG610 is ideal for decoding of sports, news and other live events contributed in MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 via satellite or IP links. 

The TVG610 is part of T-VIPS’ Video Gateway line of compact, powerful and cost-effective products designed for real-time contribution and distribution of broadcast quality video signals.

The TVG610 MPEG-4 Contribution Decoder is a future-proof platform for MPEG-4 decoding, offering support for 10-bit and 4:2:2 coding, as well as future upgrade path to 3G/1080p 50/60 Hz. At the same time, the TVG610 includes support for MPEG-2 4:2:0 and 4:2:2  SD and HD decoding, ensuring full compatibility with existing contribution infrastructure. 

The TVG610 is ideal for live contribution over satellite links, offering redundant integrated L-band inputs with DVB-S/S2 demodulation. Automatic input redundancy is also supported for ASI and IP/Ethernet inputs. Content protection is ensured by support for BISS 1/E descrambling.
