  • MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC SD/HD 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 10-bit decoding
  • Four TS descramblers with four integrated DVB-CI slots
  • High-quality H.264-to-MPEG-2 transcoding with down-conversion option

ProView 7100 FEATURES

Simplified IP headend deployment

The flexible, high-density, multichannel ProView 7100 allows users to deploy an IP headend easily and cost effectively — and launch added-value services such as HD and video on demand with excellent video quality. ProView 7100 supports a rich set of input options that range from multiple DVB-S/S2/S2X to IP and DVB-ASI.

High-fidelity decoding

The ProView 7100 offers integrated MPEG-2 4:2:0 8-bit, AVC and HEVC 4:2:2 10-bit precision decoding for DVB-S/S2/S2X, DVB-ASI and IP applications, enabling content providers to decode content up to 1080p60 with pristine picture fidelity.

Efficiency & savings

Any-to-any transcoding of up to eight channels of H.264 to MPEG-2, allows programmers to efficiently distribute superior-quality video content while using minimal satellite transponder capacity. Harmonic’s unique deterministic SFN remultiplexing (DSR) technology saves up to 90% of satellite or IP bandwidth and increases architecture flexibility in regional DVB-T SFN distribution networks.


A powerful and energy-saving solution, ProView 7100 performs multiformat video decoding with up to four stereo pairs of audio decoding, descrambles up to four transport streams and transcodes up to eight channels — significantly lowering operating expenses.
