Ericsson RX8330 Satellite Radio User Manual

Ericsson RX8330
Distribution Receiver
The Ericsson RX8330 Distribution Receiver extends the RX8300 series of Integrated Receiver Decoders by
providing feature-rich multi-format standard definition (SD) decoding capability with high quality SDI output
for video distribution applications. The RX8330 gives the user access to the latest compression and
transmission technologies to allow for the most cost-effective and bandwidth transmissions possible while
ensuring the highest standards of reliability and video quality.
The RX8330 offers both ASI and the latest DVB-S2 capable satellite input interfaces. As security of content
is always of paramount importance, compatibility with popular CA systems including DVB Common
Interface is provided. The RX8330 shows its true class through its capability for multi-format decoding of all
SD 4:2:0 video standards combined with high quality SDI digital video and analog video outputs. This
capability is further enhanced by the RX8330’s ability to receive, and down-convert HD video to SD
providing an SD output for broadcast or monitoring. Additionally for systems that stay in the compressed
domain, decrypted transport streams can be handed off into digital networks through a choice of both ASI or
optional IP output interfaces.
The feature-rich specification of the RX8330 provides the capability and flexibility that places the receiver as
the key link in the broadcast chain for applications from content distribution and turn-around to critical
network monitoring.
The Perfect Choice for a Large Network
RX8330 – Distribution Receiver (RX8330/BAS, FAZ 101 0108/1)
The RX8330 is the perfect receive device for distribution of video services
throughout a large network. The RX8330 provides the most up-to-date
feature-set, combining maximum transmission efficiency with easy remote
management of the receiver population.
The following features are available as standard:
• Four input DVB-S QPSK satellite demodulator
• Transport stream input with ASI connection
• Dual switchable ASI/SDI output (SDI via additional license)
Increased Distribution Capacity and Efficiency
• Single service DVB Common Interface CA support
The RX8330 in combination with Ericsson’s MPEG-4 AVC encoders and
PREKOR™ Dynamic Pre-correction System leads to a highly efficient
video distribution system. Combined with the additional 30 percent
increase in channel capacity of DVB-S2 the RX8330 allows operators to
achieve three times the amount of content through a transponder.
• Single service BISS CA support
• Director single service decryption, Ooer-air control and software
• Front panel and Web browser control, with alarm relay
• SCTE 35 controlled contact closures for ad-insertion signaling
Multi-format Decoding - a “Safe Choice” for the Future
The RX8330 decodes all major SD video formats in use today providing
complete flexibility for daily operations. The versatility that the RX8330
decoder provides makes it a “safe choice” for companies that are
beginning to transmit MPEG-4 AVC SD but also continue to work in
MPEG-2 SD. With the RX8330 they can migrate at their own pace.
Optional features include:
Simplified Control and Lower Cost of Operations
• Multi-service BISS decryption
Organizations with large populations of RX8330 receivers and other
Ericsson receivers can simplify control by integrating with Director by
Ericsson. Director provides remote, over-air, single-view control from a
central location, reducing the need for on-site local operators.
