DCI401MCS Pro:Idiom Security Terminator

HD content delivered over an RF distribution requires that content protection be applied. For the hospitality market, the standard content protection system is Pro:Idiom™. Commercial TV sets can be purchased which will decrypt this protection in order to properly display content, however, in applications where commercial TV sets are either not available or have not been deployed, the DCI401MCS is the perfect solution. The DCI401MCS is a small adapter box which can receive the modulated RF content, decrypt the Pro:Idiom™ protected content, then deliver to a display using an HDMI connector. For unprotected HD or SD content, the DCI401MCS can output to a display using HDMI or a modulated channel 3/4 RF connector.


Decrypting Pro/Idiom Content

The DCI401MCS is capable of decrypting Pro:Idiom™ protected source material originating from a COM24 or COM24-FLX receiver blade. This content is outputted to a TV or display device using the HDMI output only.


Digital Display Adapter

The DCI401MCS can also be utilized in applications where a digital tuner is not available. These applications may include converting the modulated digital content to an analog NTSC format compatible with older tube displays, or decoding MPEG4 source material for TV sets which are unable to decode this DIRECTV HD standard. Whatever the TV or display source, the DCI401MCS can tune and decode content originating from a COM2000 head-end and provide a standard TV output compatible with most TVs available today, thus eliminating the need to purchase or upgrade to commercial TV sets.


Easy Installation and Setup

The DCI401MCS is intended to be a simple, plug-in device to allow for access to content. This includes a channel scan upon the first power-on event to build a channel list. A simple menu is provided for further customization including the selection of Closed-Caption options and parental lock features.
