SYSTEM OF CHOICE FOR PROFESSIONAL OPERATORS
Sencore is dedicated to providing world class equipment that enable operators to deliver professional
broadcast services at the highest possible quality. The DMG 3200 is built around a modular platform
hosting a wide selection of interoperable modules that give unparalleled configuration possibilities.
Through its clever and robust design, the integrated architecture offers superior reliability that can
meet even the most demanding operator requirements.
A key feature of the DMG 3200 is the ability to accommodate customers preferred system
architectures while reducing complexity. It is possible to build an entire broadcast system within a
single chassis or distribute it between several discreet stages or distributed architectures. Sencore’s
deep understanding of the market and close co-operation with operators in the design of products
ensures the ability to provide optimal solutions for a wide array of fixed or wireless networks. Our
philosophy greatly reduces the cost of ownership and ensures that operators can simultaneously
handle legacy challenges and evolve through the introduction of brand new services.
Sencore’s DMG 3200 is our latest generation carrier grade platforms with 1RU and 4RU chassis
options of unmatched power and versatility. There are no restrictions even for the most intensive
processing requirement. Both units feature uprated dual-redundant and hot swappable power
supplies, increased cooling, enhanced redundancy and a number of other features.
An advanced user friendly GUI offers an intuitive and comprehensive management of the many
features of the system. The exhaustive multi-level alarm system, together with the easiness for
integration to 3rd party management systems, enables full automatic control. The possibility of
centralized monitoring simplifies deployment and streamlines maintenance.
Sencore classifies its modules into different categories depending on the functionality. These include
switching, input for content aggregation, compression, processing, and output modules. All modules
can be combined freely to provide the desired functionality. The latest innovations include the
possibility to deliver and convert both analog and digital broadcast services, from point to point, or
from point to multipoint and in any format to any screen.
All modules and functions are further described within the ‘modules’ section of this brochure.
CHASSIS
Advanced architec ture
designed to save space, energy
and resources
Sencore offers two different chassis: the 4RU chassis which can hold 16 modules and the 1RU chassis which can hold
6 modules. In addition, each of the chassis houses a switch and management module that can be equipped with dual IP I/Os. Both chassis
variants have dual-redundant and hot swappable power supplies. Each unit with its hot swappable modules allows for various redundancy
scenarios.
Any of the modules listed under the Input, Encoding/Transcoding, Processing, and Output sections can be combined into the same chassis.
Only chassis space or total throughput will limit the number of modules that can be fitted. The chassis has been designed for a throughput
of 850 Mbit/s of MPEG TS data and 250 services. In selected configurations, capacity can be increased to 1700 Mbit/s and 500 services (please
contact Sencore for more information).
The 4RU chassis has four independent fan modules that operate and are monitored independently. The four fan modules are identical and
support hot-swap. The 1RU chassis has one preassembled fan module consisting of 6 fans. The fan module is hot-swappable as one complete
module. The internal temperature is monitored and if a fan fails, the remaining fans will compensate by increasing the speed.

SWITCH MODULES
The switch module is used to enable MPEG traffic distribution within the chassis and provides the Man Machine Interface (MMI), enabling
configuration and management of the chassis.
The 4RU chassis has dedicated positions for the switch module in slot 0 with an optional (for selected configurations) redundant switch
module in slot 17. The switch module can be equipped with two independent IP IO ports as an option. The 1RU chassis provides an
integrated switch module in the front with IP IO as standard. The switch module for 1RU is functionally identical to the switch module used in
the larger 4RU chassis, but has a different hardware layout.
At least one switch module is required in all chassis. In addition to being the active part of the internal backplane, the switch module provides
the central control and management interface. When equipped with two IP IO data ports, reception or streaming of MPEG compliant
transport streams over UDP/RTP is supported by the module. Each port operates independently and can be configured as either IP in or IP out
supporting full 850 Mbit/s TS data rate and up to 250 MPEG services. The switch module can be provided with either RJ45 connectors or SFP
connectors on the two data ports. When equipped with two data ports, the module also has a Gen Lock input port. The switch module is hotswappable for easy maintenance.
The Switch IP IO MMI module can also be ordered to include a GPS receiver for terrestrial SFN applications. For the 4RU, this is a separate
module that must be placed in slot 1, while for 1RU, it is an add-on module for the switch module. One SMA connector for connecting either
a GPS antenna or a 1 PPS reference is then available. It is also possible to order without the GPS radio module so that it just provides a high
stability oscillator providing locking to a 1 PPS or 10MHz reference signal.

MPEG INPUT MODULES
Sencore has a wide range of input modules making it the most effective content aggregation solution on the market. An input module
analyzes incoming transport streams and extracts selected MPEG services from the desired physical input interface (eg. ASI, IP, DVB-S/S2/S2X,
DVB-C, DVB-T/T2, ISDB-T and 8VSB). Each input module type is based on embedded hardware design offering high density and reliability. The
ability to mix input types freely within a chassis enables multiple MPEG transport streams originating from a variety of sources to be received
and processed in parallel. Received signals can be demodulated, de-multiplexed and distributed to other modules inside the chassis via the
backplane.
A wide range of input modules are available including IP, ASI, DVB-S/S2/S2X, DVB-C, DVB-T/T2, ISDB-T and 8VSB. The chassis supports any
combination of input modules limited only by available slot space. Each input module is designed to receive up to 850Mbit/s of MPEG TS
rate or 250 services. In re-multiplexing mode, all services are de-multiplexed by the input module before passed onto the backplane. Unused
services are blocked by the input module to avoid propagating them further, which increases efficiency. The full content of an input port can
be mapped transparently to an output port with the option to perform PID filtering or service filtering.

UNIVERSAL ENCODER & TRANSCODER
Linear Broadcast
In order to optimize the performance of their networks, it is essential for professional broadcasters to deploy the latest advances in
compression technology. Whether the aim is to add new channels to existing multiplexes or provide genuine video quality improvements,
operators should always strive to utilize the best in class technology to offer superior viewing experience whilst improving bandwidth
efficiency.
Sencore has developed an encoding/transcoding solution providing leading class performance for video quality and channel density on
a specifically designed module targeting a wide range of applications. This allows users to maintain the best possible quality of service in
combination with low power consumption and integrated multi-level redundancy.
The immense computational power of the platform runs all-new and highly evolved encoding algorithms, boosting performance to the limit
for both AVC and MPEG2 video. The highly programmable and flexible audio encoder offers high density per channel and includes Dolby®
codecs, making this one of the most powerful encoder platforms on the market.
A brand new architecture offers full flexibility for configuration, with adaptable application modes. The Universal Encoder and Universal
Transcoder module can operate in either a High Video Quality mode, or alternatively in high density broadcast mode. Channel density is
significantly increased with a small adjustment in performance whilst Multiscreen mode enables operators to increase content reach to
multiple media devices in the fixed and mobile domain.
The new second generation statistical multiplexing provides ultra-fast refresh rate from a multi-pass look-ahead design minimizing inherent
latency. Mixed encoder/ transcoder populations can be used within the platform supporting several single or mixed format SD/HD statistical
multiplexing groups so that low-bitrate encoding can be applied to specific services within any given group.
All new Universal Encoder/Transcoder modules can be used in new or existing 4RU or 1RU Series platforms and can work in combination with
any other modules from Sencores comprehensive range.
FEATURES
Multiscreen (OTT):
Increased internet access together with more powerful computers, integrated TVs, tablets and mobile phones makes it possible for consumers
to receive video content from broadcasters anywhere, at any time and on any screen. This introduces new challenges for content and
network infrastructure providers who need to offer a wide range of different distribution formats with the best possible live video experience
regardless of the distribution networks and viewing devices that are being used.
The latest innovative Universal Encoder/Transcoder running in Multiscreen mode from Sencore enables broadcasters and IP network
operators to provide high quality multiscreen services. The transcoder module supports MPEG-2/4 TS input and transcodes to multiformat
MPEG-4 TS output with IDR alignment. The encoder module accepts SDI/HDSDI inputs directly, and encodes these into multiple profiles as a
single pass, avoiding the need to concatenate compression stages which always causes inefficiencies and reduces VQ. The unique architecture
delivers significant VQ and efficiency benefits for all real-time applications.
Sencore now offers a truly optimized OTT solution capable of accepting any input signal format. These benefits are magnified further by a
modular architecture that lets you fit encoding or transcoding options freely according to actual need. The Sencore Multiscreen encoder/
transcoder simultaneously prepares multiple signals from any source in any format for distribution to high definition televisions, high
resolution computers and low resolution web and mobile devices.
The highly programmable functions include input service replication, resolution change, interlaced to progressive conversion, rescaling and
key frame alignment. The end result provides key-frame aligned outputs in transport stream format with the required metadata to support
either IPTV distribution directly, or interface with the customers preferred packagers to perform segmentation.
The proven ability to interface with several leading segmenters/originserver is another major feature of the Sencore solution. It enables
customers to freely create a best of breed solution, combining best in class compression with their choice of latest features such as targeted
advertising and common encryption with MPEG DASH.

Sencore modules offer high channel and carrier density. The gateway module supports multiplexing and T2MI generation of up to 4 independent complete T2MI streams on IP or 2 T2MI streams on ASI and provides up to 140 regional PLPs per module. The combination of
integration and performance offered by the module is unique, making it the most powerful, yet easiest to use, DVB-T2 Gateway solution
on the market. The modules are usually provided in 1+1 redundancy configuration using the Sencore seamless T2MI redundancy option.
The gateway’s many features can be used to complement the requirements and distribution methods required by individual customers,
and can support centralized (backhaul) and ‘in region’ (edge) content replacement models using any distribution mechanism including
support for TS replacement or deterministic PLP replacement techniques as appropriate.
Architectures and Regionalization
Sencore network delivery enhancements include support for the DVB-S/S2 standard and are incorporated into the satellite modulator
and demodulator modules. For IP distribution our ‘seamless’ packet re-construction technology provides superior protection against
network packet loss and enables FEC levels to be reduced, re-claiming useful bandwidth whilst ensuring exceptional QoS. Network
reach can be extended via our fully integrated modular low-power
REDUNDANCY
Sencore’s intelligent redundancy software provides seamless integration between broadcast equipment and IP networks. It protects every
stage and provides automatic backup in case of service stream failure at input, protection from internal failures, and intermittent or permanent
data losses within distribution networks without requiring complex control software.
Sencore’s redundancy solution is unique in being the only solution in the IP television market to take a holistic view of operation and network
management. Redundancy configuration is simplified and automated, and operational routines are significantly reduced. The integrated
redundancy solutions offer operators compelling quality of service benefits and improved network reliability. The individual elements of this
integrated solution are further described below. For more detailed information please contact Sencore.
Input redundancy
The Sencore self-managed N+M redundancy for encoding and
transcoding provides a powerful option for broadcasters needing the
economies of N+M compression redundancy without the expense,
complexity and long term reliability concerns of a conventional NMS.
Rather than relying on external PC hardware, Sencore have integrated
the redundancy control into the built in management system
thus simplifying system configuration eliminating integration and
Redundancy switching can be set to automatic or manual. In operational issues between HW and management PC. It is the perfect
automatic mode it is possible to choose from the following switching method for creating the intelligent ‘device islands’ that are increasingly
being favored by broadcasters when architecting new solutions.
modes: Once (switch and stop), Floating or Reverting.
The Sencore system is equipped with an advanced input redundancy
switching mechanism. Any output service can be configured to have
a backup service from a different input TS regardless of input type.
Input switching can also be performed on TS level using ‘input port
redundancy’.
Seamless IP input redundancy (License)
The encoders and transcoders will be the only items within the chassis
in N+M configuration. Everything else will be 1+1. This includes any
input and output ports, all control and management functions,
the backplane and the power supplies. Each 4RU chassis will be
equipped with backup encoder or transcoder module(s) capable of
providing module level replacement for any of the active encoders
or transcoders within the chassis. Multiple redundancy groups can be
combined in the chassis by automatically creating groups of encoders
The Seamless IP Switch can regenerate the traffic received via two and transcoders. For encoding, the redundant control modules can
