TeamCast introduces CID management on its satellite product family
Washington D.C., March 17, 2015 – TeamCast, the world-renowned leader in digital modulation technologies for Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT), Wireless Transmission and Satellite Applications, is announcing the introduction of CID management on several of its satellite products at the Satellite 2015 show.
CID stands for Carrier Identification. The purpose of this new technology is to allow the quick identification of any carrier causing interference to other signals. It consists of adding a unique identifier to the useful signal at the transmission site. Being robustly coded and modulated, this identification signal can be easily retrieved at the reception site, even when its power is low compared to the useful signals.
The insertion of such identification signals will become mandatory in the forthcoming years, as soon as 2016 for DSNG applications in the USA, 2018 for all satellite applications in the USA, and later on in other parts of the world.
In order to help its customers to prepare themselves for this new operational requirement, TeamCast has decided to include the CID management in two first products:
- In its new 3rd generation Vyper DVB-S2X satellite modulator, so that the CID is added to the transmitted signal. This is necessary for complying with the future requirements.
- In its new Jupiter OEM DVB-S/S2 satellite demodulator board for professional Integrated Receiver Decoders (IRDs), so that the CID information can be extracted from any received signal and checked. This is useful for an easy « on-the-fly» checking of the CID presence in a signal.
“With the introduction of CID Management into its products, TeamCast is continuing its road towards a better and more complete operational offering for its customers, for a shorter return on their investment, with a long term view” says Christophe Trolet, Business Unit Manager at TeamCast.
The new satellite product’s CID management capabilities will be demonstrated on TeamCast’s booth at the Satellite 2015 show: #4128.
