HBO Latin America has selcted the ARRIS DSR-7412 transcoder, and DSR-4470 receiver decoder for its content distribution network.

ARRIS claims that the devices 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.

The ARRIS 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.

ARRIS said its Global Services will support HBO Latin America in designing, integrating and installing the new technology framework within its new satellite infrastructure. Together, they will also deploy the ARRIS Broadcast Network Controller 3.8 management system to remotely provision the DSR-7412 and DSR-4470 IRDs capabilities.

Emilio Otermin, SVP Technology and Operations, HBO Latin America
We chose the ARRIS DSR-7412 transcoder and DSR-4470 decoder to lead our next phase of network development, because they will enable us to deliver today's most demanding services and prepare us for tomorrow's advanced experiences.

Dan Whalen, President, Network & Cloud, ARRIS
We designed the new DSR-7412 transcoder receiver to bridge the gap between the next era of entertainment services, today's networks, and a massive installed base of legacy set-tops.
