Novra is pleased to introduce the MSR300 into our lineup of DVB-based IP/MPEG receiver/routers. The MSR300 is a 1 RU platform that supports up to 3 independent DVB-S2 receive modules. Each module is capable of receiving an independent satellite signal, or modules may be combined to receive different transponders from the same satellite. The enhanced feature set of the MSR300 extends your DVB-S2 performance by expanding the operation to 32 APSK and down to 100 Ksps; by increasing data throughput to 80 Mbps; and by handling complex multi-stream VCM signals with embedded Input Stream Identier (ISI) filtering. The MSR300CA is designed for use as a video streaming appliance. It provides a simple, intuitive, graphical interface for program selection and assignment. The MSR300 provides the flexibility to choose which Audio and Teletext PID’s to include with the stream and will re-generate the PAT to support Single Program Transport Streams (SPTS) or Multi-Program Transport Streams (MPTS).


The MSR300 is ideally suited for small-medium enterprise use, delivering IP or MPEG applications that require aggregation and distribution of video-based programming. Typical applications include IPTV content aggregation (head end) and delivery, hotel or cruise ship infotainment, distance education, digital signage, corporate LAN’s and cable network head-ends.
