Sencore has announced the SCP 2100, which it describes as a cost-effective and easy to deploy device for acquiring, compressing and backhauling nearly any video signal across the internet. 


Sencore: The SCP 2100 will acquire, compress and backhaul nearly any video signal

Product applications include local off-air signal collection, content acquisition over the internet, and distribution encoding and transcoding.

The new platform combines ASIC-based encoding and transcoding with the latest internet delivery protocols. According to Sencore, the SCP 2100 signal collection platform makes it ‘effortless’ to acquire feeds that may have previously been too costly or difficult. The platform is compact at 1/3RU wide and 1RU high and is provided with what Sencore describes as a simple and intuitive web UI for configuration and monitoring.

The new unit features H.264 encoding, transcoding and rate-shaping of 8VSB/QAM-B, ASI and MPEG/IP inputs; encoding of SD-SDI, HD-SDI and HDMI inputs; support for 8VSB, ASI, QAM-B, SDI, HDMI, SRT, Zixi, RIST and MPEG/IP; and PID-filter or service filter SPTS or MPTS inputs.
