DR8400 is designed for contribution markets where premium quality and performance are more important than ever.
As a true Universal Integrated Receiver Decoder, the DR8400 gives by default 3 different inputs type: Double built-in DVB-S/S2 demodulator, IP Gigabit and ASI with a TS bit rate up to 200Mbps. Combined with a decoding bit rate reaching 80 Mbps with no compromise in CABAC, the DR8400 is addressing a large spectrum of Primary Contribution applications.
DR8400 is also capable of decoding the innovative AVC-I frame only mode up to 150 Mbps providing transparent video quality.
DR8400 offers a complete front panel and an unique and user-friendly web user interface with advanced monitoring features.

HEVC and Broadcast Content

High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) is a new video compression format that effectively doubles the data compression rate compared to H.264/MPEG-4 AVC at the same level of video quality.
HEVC will be used first in applications where bandwidth is a problem today, where the client device can easily be updated to support HEVC, either because it is a device that users replace frequently, such as smartphones, or because it is flexible to support HEVC. Contribution applications will come later, and require more robust complex implementations of the standard than what can be offered by compression vendors at this time.HEVC has been found to be a very efficient codec for all content types including interlaced content; if you think otherwise, this paper will help you understand where the misconception that HEVC is only for progressive was initiated.
