HBO Latin America selects Arris products for its content distribution network

Arris International announced that the Arris DSR-7412 transcoder, and DSR-4470 receiver decoder have been selected by HBO Latin America for its content distribution network.
The Arris DSR-7412 and DSR-4470 will significantly reduce network bandwidth requirements while creating a new pathway for advanced services. Both devices feature HEVC compression and DVB-S2X modulation that increase the video capacity of satellite transmission channels and improve existing video service fidelity, said the company in a press release.
The DSR-7412 transcoder offers a new level of density and extensibility to modernize service delivery, with processing power for up to 12 services—in both HD and SD—in a single rack unit. Its statistical multiplexing enables HBO Latin America to efficiently deliver services through its existing QAM networks. The DSR-7412 multi-tuner capability can also simultaneously receive and process up to four input satellite transponder multiplexes, for flexibility in service selection across networks. The DSR-4470 decoder complements these features with support for the latest HEVC video as well as legacy MPEG-4 and MPEG-2 streams.
