SA Decoder Supports Multiple CA Systems

Scientific Atlanta announced the D9854 Advanced Program Receiver, which supports multiple conditional-access systems and DVB-S2, the second-generation standard for digital-video broadcasting that can expand the content-carrying capacity of existing satellites by up to 30%.

“In addition to support for multiple CA systems, this receiver has bandwidth-efficiency improvements for just about everyone: DVB-S2, high-definition, standard-definition, MPEG-2, MPEG-4 advanced video coding and MPEG over IP [Internet protocol] outputs, all in one receiver,” Scientific Atlanta general manager of digital-media networks Dean Rockwell said in a prepared statement.

“These multiple capabilities will be extremely valuable to help meet the increased demand for HD programming that is generating a bandwidth challenge for content owners and creators,” he added.
