The Miranda IRD-3101 SD MPEG Decoder with ASI and GigE IP Inputs provides MPEG-2 decoding of ASI and IP transport streams to SD video. It also provides processing of key video and audio parameters and signal probing functions for feed aggregation, distribution, and monitoring applications by broadcasters and TV service providers.
DVB-ASI or IP transport streams fed to the IRD-3101 can be decoded to provide SD videos with embedded multi-channel audio, in all leading formats, as well as composite video and stereo analog audio for monitoring. With its Gigabit Ethernet port, the IRD-3101 can also act as a gateway, by performing IP encapsulation of the input transport stream in either RTP or UDP mode.
The IRD can decode an extensive range of Metadata, such as CEA-608 compliant closed captioning, Teletext, AFD, V-chip and DVITC Time Code, which can be embedded in the decoded SDI signal. Transport Stream Metadata, such as PSIP can also be analyzed.
The audio processing capabilities of the IRD-3101 feature dual audio decoding of MPEG-1 and Dolby Digital (AC-3) 2.0 audio. In addition, the IRD-3101 performs a wide range of signal quality probing, with user-defined alarm settings on an extensive range of transport stream parameters, including TR 101 290 alarms, transport stream structure analysis, and individual program statistics.
