High-quality, all-purpose decoding and descrambling for day-to-day primary distribution 

The first member of the all-new Harmonic ProView™ 8000 family of integrated-receiver-decoders, the ProView™ 8100 single-channel commercial decoder and descrambler is a compact, fully featured unit for general-purpose primary distribution applications.

Workflow efficiency is a key trait of this advanced IRD. The ProView 8100 provides simultaneous HD-SDI and SD-SDI output with high-quality HD-to-SD down-conversion, allowing operators to use the same device to feed both the HD and SD production chains. Built-in frame-rate conversion brings additional benefits, especially for multi-national program distributors, as it enables content shot at 50 Hz to be distributed at 60 Hz, or vice versa. With this capability, operators no longer need to purchase a separate, stand-alone frame-rate converter.
