For.A IP-920 Overview

The IP-920 MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) Decoder from For.A is an audio/video codec that utilizes MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) encoding to perform real-time transmission of SDTV and HDTV signals at lower bit rates over an IP network. It employs Fujitsu FEC (Forward Error Correction) and ARQ (Automatic Repeat Request) and Pro-MPEG FEC error correction techniques. The decoder features a Low Latency mode (<400 ms) with support for optional Ultra-Low Latency mode (<99 ms). In addition, it comes with HD-SDI (SMPTE 292M), SD-SDI (SMPTE 259M), HDMI, and NTSC/PAL interfaces.

Videos can be transmitted using Carrier ID and NIT over Satellite Network
RS-232C (pass-thru) functionality
FEC, ARQ, and Pro-MPEG FEC error correction techniques
Comes with one Reference Input (BB)
1 RU form factor
Suitable for applications such as news gathering (SNG/ ENG) and live sports backhaul
