Motorola’s DSR-6300 is a commercial integrated receiver/decoder (IRD) designed to deliver three-channel MPEG-4 to MPEG-2 HD transcoding. It is intended to enable cable operators to increase HD throughput by up to 50 percent while offering satellite operators greater flexibility in packaging HD services to their affiliates.
The DSR-6300 features Motorola’s closed-loop statistical multiplexing, which is designed to dynamically allocate the optimal bandwidth to each program using Motorola patented video complexity analysis. Up to three HD services can be delivered to the home in QAM-friendly transport bitrates. The DSR-6300 simultaneously uses the in-band active format descriptor (AFD) to translate input HD services to an appropriate SD service with proper apect ratio and resolution. The DSR-6300 will be featured at Motorola’s booth (2037) at The Cable Show next week.
