New TWISTER firmware version makes local and remote maintenance simpler for operators
Amsterdam, September 10, 2015 – TeamCast, the global market leader in advanced solutions for Digital Terrestrial and Satellite Transmission, releases at IBC 2015 a new S120 firmware version adding new maintenance features to the TWISTER exciter.
TWISTER integrates the latest technological breakthroughs in terms of signal processing including TeamCast’s latest adaptive pre-correction algorithms (GAP®). TWISTER brings a significant gain in the output RF signal performance, both in terms of factor of merit (MER) and intermodulation products (Shoulders).
One other unique and differentiating feature of the TWISTER solution is the integration of a set of functions specially developed for the control and monitoring of the transmitter. Embedded monitoring functions provide real-time measurements of key operation parameters such as forward and backward RF power levels, MER and intermodulation (Shoulders). The availability of the whole set of TWISTER’s functions through the SNMP interface makes the remote control and monitoring of the transmitter simple and effective.
To help further the operator’s personnel, TWISTER now embeds a Log File function, which gives access to all events that occurred in the exciter’s operation and transmitter immediate environment. This Log File can be accessed locally (Web browser) and remotely (SNMP).
« With TWISTER now offering a Log File, we continue our strategy to provide all DVB-T2 markets with very reliable and cost-effective digital exciters, bringing constantly improving performance and daily operation», says Eric PINSON, Business Unit Manager at TeamCast.
This new TWISTER version will be demonstrated on TeamCast’s stand #2.B51.
