The AG 5800 card-based receiver decoder provides an ideal solution for 4:2:2 video decoding where rack space is limited. The platform supports up to 10 decoder cards in the industry-standard 2RU openGear® OG-3 chassis.
With independent per-card GUIs and a full-featured satellite input with BISS and DVB-CI descrambling, the decoder is uniquely suited for applications in master control or occasional downlink facilities. Support for all MPEG-4 and MPEG-2 formats up to 10-bit 422 AVC, up to 16 audio channels in any common format, and tested interoperability with all major encoder vendors mean this is the last contribution decoder you’ll ever need.
The AG 5800 is also a future-proof solution for multichannel primary distribution where video quality is at a premium. With the ability to upgrade to 4:2:2 or 1080p50/60 decoding in the future via a simple software license, the card is a safe choice for the long haul.
Add Sencore’s tradition of receiver decoder design and best-in-class ProCare support, and the AG 5800 provides the most compelling value package in the industry.
