San Diego, California -- DVEO®, a well respected supplier to leading telco TV/OTT and cable operators around the world, is now shipping an ATSC 3.0 version of the classic best-selling Verona™ 4 Tuner 8VSB frequency agile receiver-demodulator.  The new TLV500E-ATSC 3.0™ will be demonstrated at the NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) Show in Las Vegas, April 9-12, in booth SU5624.

The broadcast quality, frequency agile system is a modular four tuner ATSC 3.0 + 1.0 UHD/HD receiver-demodulator with an MPEG-2 (HD/SD), MPEG-4/H.264 and HEVC/H.265 decoder.  It has five slots.  Each slot can have an AC to DC power supply module or a tuner/decoder module.  The typical application uses one AC to DC power supply and up to four tuner/decoder modules.

Each tuner/decoder module can have an RF tuner with ATSC 3.0 or ATSC 3.0 IP input.  Video output is 12G/Quad 3G and 1.5G SDI digital format or HDMI, with embedded audio. 

"The TLV500E-ATSC 3.0 is ideal for American, Canadian, and Mexican broadcasters who are making the much anticipated transition to ATSC 3.0," commented Laszlo Zoltan, Vice President of DVEO.  "The system is a full featured multichannel off-air ATSC 3.0 professional receiver that is designed for content monitoring and repurposing.  It was put to use during the recent Korean Winter Olympics."

Supported 4K decoding resolutions are Ultra HD (UHD) -- 3840 x 2160p @ 60p, 50p, 30p, and 24p, plus digital cinema 4K (DCI 4K) -- 4096 x 2160p @ 24p.  In addition, the system supports 576i/480i, 576p/480p, 720p and 1080i/1080p.  It also down converts HD input to SD out if requested.

The TLV-500E ATSC 3.0 provides FEC (BCH, CRC, LDPC) on the ATSC  3.0 or ATSC 3.0 IP input.  It also features ATSC 3.0 ROUTE (Real-Time Object Delivery over Unidirectional Transport) and MMTP (MPEG Media Transport Protocol) support.
