TeamCast adds an EDI input on its Green4DAB high-end DAB/DMB digital modulator
Rennes, January 15th, 2015 – TeamCast, the global market leader in advanced solutions for Digital Terrestrial and Satellite Transmission, is releasing end of January 2015 a new S110 software version that enables the EDI input on Green4DAB, TeamCast’s high-end OEM Digital Radio modulator dedicated to DAB/DAB+/DMB networks.
Green4DAB is as a very compact and reliable OEM digital modulator, ready to be integrated within VHF Digital Transmitter designs.
Enabling the EDI input brings the capability to use IP inputs to receive the front-end contributions. This will come as a simple software upgrade.
Green4DAB also features dual-stream ETI input processing, an onboard satellite demodulator, as well as a built-in GPS receiver.
« With the EDI input, we complete the Green4DAB development to help our customers to provide full-featured DAB/DAB+/DMB transmitters. We truly believe that using IP networks to distribute signals to transmitters will strongly help the network providers to save CAPEX and OPEX costs compared to traditional distribution networks. With addition to the cutting-edge digital adaptive precorrection algorithm implemented into Green4DAB, these costs will significantly decrease, as a consequence of a much better transmitter efficiency», says Eric Pinson, Head of the Technology Business Unit at TeamCast.
« With this new release, Green4DAB can handle unicast or multicast streams with full seamless switching between EDI and ETI inputs and with error correction capacity. As an unmatched feature, it supports the absolute timestamps required for particular SFN network configurations, in addition to relative timestamps. Besides the Digital Radio applications, this new Green4DAB version can also be used as a DVB-T/T2 compliant Digital TV modulator for the VHF band, with IP inputs» adds Eric.
