General Details
BBright RMD-8 / RMD-24 (Remote Monitoring Decoder) is a universal multichannel monitoring decoder and analyser designed for HD / Full HD and Ultra HD video, audio and metadata monitoring. With support for 2110, SDI and TS over IP inputs, the BBright RMD can be deployed in broadcast centers and master control rooms, but can also be used for remote production and remote monitoring of contribution flows.
Ready to work with contribution feeds up to Ultra HD, HDR, and NGA audio, the bbright RMD provides a complete set of monitoring information through its intuitive WEB interface: video preview, audio bars, audio metadata displays (including Dolby DD / DD + / Dolby E and AC4), ETR 290 alarm, and ancillary data analysis.

This software-based monitoring solution is available in multiple configurations to perform simultaneously compressed (TS) and baseband (2110 and SDI) signal analysis and monitoring.
BBright’s advanced network connectivity (such as VLAN support) makes it easy to integrate RMD into complex and remote network deployments.
