Washington D.C. (USA), March 06, 2017 – TeamCast, the world-renowned leader in digital modulation technologies for Satellite Applications, Wireless Transmission and Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) is promoting its Carrier ID solution at the Satellite 2017 show.
DVB-CID is a standardized key feature which helps satellite users and operators to quickly solve satellite interference problems. TeamCast has designed a complete solution (transmission and reception) which deals with this latest feature also called Carrier ID. Thanks to TeamCast’s range of products, satellite users can easily check and prove that they are compliant with this new requirement which is becoming mandatory by regulation.
TeamCast demonstrates first how its VYPER satellite modulator is adding the CID carrier to the transmitted carrier so that the resulting signal can be easily tracked and identified with proper receiving equipment.
The demonstration also includes the use of TeamCast’s brand new CID receiver, which decodes the CID signal and allows operators to check and analyse carriers to ensure the DVB-CID signal is present and compliant with regulations.
“Under the pressure of the regulators, the satellite transmission industry is looking for equipment (both for transmission and for reception) allowing to generate and check the CID. Our new CID Receiver is cost effective, easy to use (user-friendly GUI), and straightforward to integrate into any monitoring system (using SNMP) or, simply, as a stand-alone solution. It provides a real response to the industry’s expectations” says Christophe Trolet, head of the Satellite Business Unit at TeamCast.
Compatibility of TeamCast’s CID equipment has been checked with other vendors’ equipment, including the Rohde & Schwarz Broadcast Test Center (BTC).
The VYPER and CID Receiver products are shown on TeamCast’s booth #1940.
