Sencore’s new ARD 3000 series of ATSC 3.0 receiver decoders is designed to enable users to decode one channel (ARD 3100) or four channels (ARD 3400) in a 1RU platform.
According to the company, it is perfectly suited for re-encode or confidence monitoring applications in existing distribution systems.
The latest ATSC 3.0 terrestrial broadcast standard is shaking up the industry, the company believes, and the need to decode these new off-air signals in a professional receiver decoder platform is essential.
The ARD 3000 series includes an ATSC 3.0 RF input for receiving the next-generation RF signal, enabling users to tune to a single PLP and decode up to four services. Decoded services are output via 4x3G-SDI for UHD services or 3G/HD/SD-SDI for HD and SD services. Unit configuration is achieved using the web GUI or through APIs like Rest and SNMP.
