MPEG-2/H.264 Universal Decoder

The Selenio SEL-1DEC2 Universal decoder module can decode any CODEC video streams from H.264 or MPEG-2, SD or HD in both 8 and 10 bit modes, and supports up to eight audio streams, as well as the processing of any supporting data insertion via VBI, VANC, or Serial Data.

The decoder is built with the latest silicon architectures, and is suited for distribution and contribution applications. It provides a high level of compatibility with the Selenio SEL-1ENC1 distribution and SEL-1ENC2 contribution encoder modules and other industry encoders. The SEL-1ENC2 and SEL-1DEC2 used as a pair can deliver a low latency of 250ms guaranteed end to end, making a perfect contribution solution for interview or sports applications.

Optimized for primary contribution applications — including studio-to-studio post production, stadium, surveillance, or satellite uplinks— the Selenio SEL-1DEC2 contribution decoder delivers a full complement of features in a space- and power-efficient footprint, and resets the standard for simplicity in the H.264 era.

The flexibility of the Selenio decoder makes it ideal for production and distribution applications. Coupled with other modules in the Selenio MCP series, this multi-function decoder addresses applications such as multiformat satellite decoding, confidence monitoring and much more.
