BNP3xr Supports DVB-CA and Other Key Features for Latin American Operators
MONTERREY, Mexico – MobilityWire® – April 28, 2010
RGB Networks, the leader in network video processing, is highlighting the latest member of its widely-deployed Broadcast Network Processor (BNP) family at this important event for Latin American cable television operators. The new BNP3xr is built on the same groundbreaking video processing technology as RGB’s proven and popular BNP2xr and the BNPxr models, but it utilizes a new, two rack-unit tall chassis design that enables it to offer several new features, including:
- Support for DVB conditional access SimulCrypt encryption to protect digital cable services.
- Dual hot-swappable, redundant power supplies and fan modules to ensure uninterrupted operation in the unlikely event a failure should occur.
“RGB developed the BNP3xr to help cable operators worldwide rapidly expand their deployments of advanced, revenue-generating services, such as HD and ad insertion,” said Lou Mastrocola, Vice President, Americas, for RGB Networks. “Now, with support for DVB-CA, paired with added redundancy features, the BNP3xr offers our Latin American customers the most cost-effective way to add and deploy secure video services without ever compromising the outstanding quality or reliability they’ve come to expect from RGB.”
Complementing its encryption and reliability features, 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, emergency alert 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 Latin American 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.
