UCrypt QAM to IP

UCrypt QAM to IP

ATX’s UCrypt QAM to IP (Q2IP) media distribution gateway is designed to deliver reliable and secure HD or SD programming to hospitality or other commercial businesses requiring IP-based video streams. An easy-to-use, Web-based UI for remote configuration, management and the ability to monitor thousands of deployed units simultaneously via the UCrypt Monitoring server monitoring improves operational efficiency. The UCrypt QAM to IP gateway supports a variety of decryption methods, including MediaCipher®, PowerKEY® or NDS® CableCARD™. The solution is ideal for MSOs and other service providers with a need to decrypt select programs from their digital tier, and retransmit them via multicast IP (with optional Verimatrix®, Pro:Idiom® or AES128 Fixed Key encryption).

Benefits

  • Operational Efficiency – Multifunction capabilities enables MSOs to reduce costs and operational overhead by streamlining operations for  decrypting and transitioning an encrypted digital cable feed to Pro:Idiom, Verimatrix or AES128-based encrypted or clear IP video format suitable for hospitality, enterprise and other commercial account applications
  • Reduced Trouble Calls – A proven track record of long-term operation in mission-critical and high-visibility environments with multiple layers of integrated redundancy and robustness gives service providers assurances of operational stability that only a field-hardened system can deliver
  • Ease of Use – Enterprise-grade features, such as remote configuration and monitoring capability, including the ability to pro-actively monitor all deployed devices via a central UCrypt Monitoring Server instance, makes it easier for MSOs and other service providers to keep tabs on the health of their networks
  • Rack-Space Savings– Industry-leading support for handling up to 60 MPEG-2/H.264, HD/SD, programs in a single unit enables service providers to conserve precious rack space, reduce power consumption and realize other benefits of deploying high-density solutions
  • Cost Efficiency –  The platform’s expandable architecture enables service providers to add capacity and functionality to the platform in lockstep with market demand,  allowing MSOs and other to adopt a pay-as-you-grow model
