mediaHUB-Pro 02 (E5110)

The mediaHUB-Pro 02 is a real-time Contribution-quality MPEG 2 Standard and High Definition encoder. It is designed to support the most demanding Contribution, ATSC, DVB and IPTV MPEG 2 Distribution applications; the Studio version of the mediaHUB-Pro 02 encodes Cable Labs VOD and DPI compliant MPEG 2 Transport Streams. The Pro's auto-detect HD/SD-SDI video input eliminates the need for user resolution and frame rate configuration. It boasts dual stream on-board audio encoding of MPEG 1 Layer 2 audio including support for Dolby E and Dolby 5.1 passthrough. Optional dual stream Dolby Digital AC3 encode can be added with a simple software key either at the factory or in the filed. Standard Adtec transport interfaces include three ASI copper outputs with included support for transport over GIGE. Audio inputs include AES3 Digital Audio, SDI and Analog audio. BISS 1 and BISS E encryption is an option that can be field activated with a simple software key, no hardware required. The Pro's user interfaces include a comprehensive easy-to-use front panel interface, on-board Web application server for configuration and monitoring plus SNMP 2.0C MIBS. Unique features of the Studio version include a built-in confidence decoder with HD/SD-SDI, HDMI and D1 outputs.


  • MPEG 2 SD Contribution & Distribution Quality Encoding: Support for MPEG 2 SD 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 Contribution, Distribution and Studio encoding quality. with mediaHUB-Pro 02 and mediaHUB-Pro 02-S.
  • MPEG 2 HD Contribution & Distribution Encoding: Optional upgrade to MPEG 2 HD 4:2:0 encoding with a simple field upgrade, no hardware exchange required.
  • SDI Plug and Encode: Automatic SDI detection (HD and SD) of standards and frame rates. (HD required HD feature key)
  • High and Standard Definition Video: One box - both formats. (HD requires the purchase of MEDIAHUB-PRO-HD-KEY, factory or field upgrade)
  • High Performance Audio Encoding and Passthrough: Encode two stereo pairs of MPEG 1 Layer 2 audio, passthrough Dolby E, or Dolby Digital 5.1 with optional dual stream Dolby Digital AC3 audio encoding.
  • Easy to Use: Rapidly and accurately configure mediaHUB-HD Pro via the front panel, on-board web application server or SNMP.
  • Monitor: Web Browser, front panel LED and LCD visual alarms, SNMP traps and event logging are all standard.

        mediaHUB-Pro 02-S added Features

  • Create VOD and DPI-ready Files: Create Cable Labs compliant Transport streams for use with VOD and DPI.
  • Control with Accuracy: mediaHUB-HD Pro can control VTR sources or be controlled by a non linear editor (NLE) via RS-422 for frame accurate mark in/out encoding. (Studio version only),Hard Drive Capture: Frame accurately capture encodes for VOD and DPI applications.
  • Decode While Encode (DWE): Built-in confidence decoder nearly eliminates the need for external local decoders.
