DM 6400 CherryPicker Application PlatformThe Motorola DM 6400 is a medium-density solution for digital video processing systems, delivering unparalleled quality and reliability for networking, distributing and processing both standard definition (SD) and high definition (HD) services. It offers a wide array of digital video applications including grooming of custom channel lineups, rate shaping and statistical remultiplexing, and localized digital ad insertion.

Key Functions and Features

The DM 6400 is a compact one rack unit (1 RU) chassis with five slots for custom input/output options. This flexible hardware architecture allows operators to add application specific modules as their business requirements grow.

At the heart of the DM 6400 are custom-designed ASICs, powering the most efficient and high-quality SD and HD rate shaping available. Designed from the ground up to address the unique computational requirements of MPEG-2 digital video, This powerful ASIC solution enables the DM 6400 to handle an unsurpassed number of simultaneous digital video stream processes.

Digital Ad Insertion Over IP Networks

Moving from ASI to IP-based distribution networks is an integral step in the transition to all-digital networks. To maintain ad revenues during this transition, operators also need to shift DPI to an IP-distribution network. The DM 6400 allows operators to insert local and national digital ads over IP networks, facilitating a more efficient process for digital insertion.

Across ASI And GIGE Networks

With the DM 6400, operators can continue to use today's DVB-ASI networks while providing a scalable platform which supports a phased transition to a GigE video network. Asoperators move from ASI to GigE, the ability to mirror outputs allows them to process each transport only once and output it twice, removing the cost of duplicate processing of the same input.

Distributed chassis, interoperability, management message insertion, and more.
