SAPEC introduced at Broadcast Madrid Show, BIT2016, the new product line for Ultra High Definition: AVANTOS-UHD. The first product in this family is a HEVC (ITU.H-265) real time decoder, which has been designed for UHD professional contributions environments.
Using HEVC algorithm, guarantees high efficiency, high image quality and high compression UHD contributions. AVANTOS-UHD decoder allows UHD contributions with very high image quality thanks to HEVC Main10 and Main422 profiles, both for 10 bits per pixel withstand. The support of both profiles provides greater flexibility to the product allowing his use in Distribution environments (DTT, satellite, IPTV, etc.) as well as Contribution environments.
Particularly, Main422 format support allows contributions with very high image quality, and performs multi-generation (multiple processes coding-decoding) with minimal loss of information due to compression. One of the main features of AVANTOS-UHD is that allows full frame decoding UHD (3840p x 2160l). AVANTOS-UHD offers professional UHD video output interfaces (4x synchronized 3G-SDI). Input signals can be received via DVB-ASI or over IP, it has several Ethernet interfaces. The IP interface supports standard SMPTE-2022 and FEC to ensure transmission. AVANTOS-UHD includes other features of AVANTOS systems such as:
- Supports up to 8 embedded stereo audio with the ability to encode each pair of audio in MPEG1-LII or AAC. Dolby Digital encoding or Dolby Digital PLUS up to 5.1 optionally
- Ease of operation through a GUI webpage, SNMP or Display and keyboard on the front panel.
- Hot-swappable Redundant power supply.
- Everything in only 1RU.
AVANTOS-UHD decoder will be shown in operation at SAPEC stand (12B25) during the BIT2016. The unit will decode in real time one UHD signal previously coded by SAPEC in HEVC Main 422 profile with 10b. The signal will be shown in a UHD TV so that visitors can appreciate the high quality that is obtained with the use of contribution profiles.
