MPEG2 encoding and transcoding, as well as SCTE 104 to SCTE 35 ad insertion conversion, have been added to Sencore’s SCP 2100 Internet delivery encoder. With the addition of these two features, the SCP 2100 is an “extremely versatile” edge device for acquiring, compressing and backhauling content across the Internet, Sencore asserted.
The SCP 2100 is a cost-effective, multi-purpose device that allows operators to have a single solution for acquiring and transporting their content over the open Internet, regardless of codec, interface or streaming protocol.
With support for nearly any physical input – including MPEG/IP, HDMI, SDI, ASI, QAM and 8VSB, along with support for both H.264 and MPEG2, the SCP 2100 is truly a plug-and-play solution. Once the signal has been compressed, rate-shaped, transcoded or repackaged, it is transported as Zixi or SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) across the Internet or as MPEG/IP with SMPTE 2022-1 Forward Error Correction (FEC).
This vast feature set, Sencore added, makes the SCP 2100 the device of choice for acquiring content from off-air broadcast feeds, sporting events, and public service addresses, to name but a few.
As with all Sencore products, the SCP 2100 is backed by Sencore’s best-in-class staff of ProCare support engineers.
