The NOVUS-RD Decoder is a high performance real time MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 SD and HD video decoding solution that is future proofed by design. It is the first professional broadcast decoder that can decode the traditional video formats such as UDP and RTP (MPEG Transport Stream) as well as Internet and Mobile formats such as RTMP (Adobe Flash) and HLS (Apple’s HTTP Live Streaming). Camera protocols such as RTMP and RTSP are also supported.

In addition to full remote control/monitoring via DashBoard™ software, the advanced front panel display/user interface allows configuration setup without needing a computer or connection to remote control.
The decoder has been designed to meet the demanding requirements of the IPTV, Telco, professional broadcast, enterprise video delivery, and streaming video markets.
The NOVUS-RD is a single channel system. If desired, up to three units can be installed in a 1RU rack mount tray.
