Modular Solution for Video and Audio Processing, Compression and Multiplexing

As the broadcast industry continues to migrate toward IP and its inherent efficiencies, customers with less complex systems or space constraints do not have to make compromises when it comes to on-air and signal transport functionality.

Imagine’s Selenio™ MCP3 and Selenio™ MCP1 – 3RU and 1RU modular platforms – combine baseband video and audio processing, compression and IP networking features in a single, space-saving solution. With Selenio MCP, customers choose modules based on specific application needs, spanning video encoding, decoding, multiplexing and processing.

Selenio MCP also delivers an on-ramp/off-ramp solution for conversion of SDI signals to IP streams and IP to SDI signals, allowing continued use of existing infrastructure for a phased, disruption-free transition to IP, while supporting hybrid domains.
