The LG CodePlus PIVD100R Pro:Idiom Video Distribution Transcoder System provides a flexible eight- to16-program HDTV solution for system providers who provide satellite delivered content to commercial facilities (hotels, hospitals, etc.) The PIVD100R incorporates eight 100BaseTX X-Ports that connect up to eight satellite set-top boxes (STBs) from either DIRECTV or DISH Network satellite service.
The PIVD100R converts satellite MPEG-4 HD programming to an encrypted, encoded transport stream. A Pro:Idiom-compatible
television is required to view premium HD content, and a proper session ID must be set at the TV in order for Pro:Idiom decryption to be enabled. LG’s Pay-Per-View (PPV) partners can set up this session through their interface. LG’s Free-To-Guest (FTG) Mode of operation also enables Pro:Idiom decryption.
Multiple PIVD100R units may be combined in the head end to deliver an entire channel lineup of HD programming.
