SUNNYVALE, California – MobilityWire® – March 16, 2010
RGB Networks, the leader in network video processing, has added a new member to its widely-deployed Broadcast Network Processor (BNP) product line with the introduction of the BNP3xr. Built on the same groundbreaking video processing technology as RGB’s field-proven BNP2xr and the BNPxr, which have been deployed by operators throughout the world, including eight of the top 10 North American cable television operators, the BNP3xr offers customers new redundancy features, as well as support for international broadcast encryption standards.
The BNP3xr utilizes a new, two rack-unit high chassis design that enables it to offer several new features, including:
- Dual hot-swappable, redundant power supplies and fan modules to ensure uninterrupted operation in the unlikely event a failure should occur.
- Support for DVB conditional access SimulCrypt encryption – which is particularly relevant in international markets.
The BNP3xr is the most comprehensive digital video processing solution in the industry, combining support for the widest range of applications with unprecedented stream processing density. It uniquely supports grooming, statistical multiplexing, transrating, digital ad and overlay insertion, digital emergency alert system (EAS) notification, operator messaging and program substitution, and can simultaneously process more than 760 MPEG-2 and MPEG-4/H.264 video streams. The BNP3xr’s unmatched combination of density, advanced features and support for an array of video processing functions provides operators with an ideal solution for the delivery of today’s services, as well as the flexibility for scalable, pay-as-you-grow growth through its license-based expansion model. In addition, the compact, multi-function platform significantly reduces the cost and complexity for video service providers to deploy high-definition (HD) services, advanced advertising and other increasingly sophisticated and critical services.
“We listened to our customers and have responded to their evolving requirements with this new member of the BNP family,” said Ramin Farassat, Vice President of Product Marketing and Business Development for RGB Networks. “The added redundancy features of the BNP3xr increase our customers’ peace of mind, while its support for DVB-CA allows international operators to cost-effectively add and deploy secure video services. With the expanded BNP product family, we offer solutions ideally suited to the needs of video service providers everywhere, without ever compromising on our superior video quality.”
