Rennes (France), September 06, 2017 – TeamCast, the world-renowned leader in digital modulation technologies for Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT), Wireless Transmission and Satellite Applications, is introducing a new turnkey solution for building Single Frequency Networks (SFN) meeting the new ATSC3.0 standard.
With TeamCast being part of the ENENSYS group since May 31st 2017, all companies like TV Stations, Broadcasters and TX manufacturers, who wish to design and set-up ATSC 3.0 network architectures, will have the perfect complete turnkey solution specifically designed to operate their SFN network.
Indeed, the ENENSYS gateway/scheduler (“ATSCheduler”) and the TeamCast ATSC 3.0 exciter (VORTEX II) are fully interoperable, and come together as a straightforward and ready-to-deploy solution. The ATSCheduler, is normally located at either the NOC (Network Operating Centre) or the Studio, and is responsible for preparing and time-stamping the content stream to be distributed to the transmitter sites, via the STL (Studio to Transmitter Link) interface. At each transmitter site, the Vortex II exciter receives the STL data stream and generates the corresponding RF signal. Vortex II also integrates all key features to drive the RF power part of the transmitter, such as Digital Adaptive Pre-correction, power measurements and Automatic Gain Control. It guarantees a high level of efficiency and flexibility for the transmission operator.
“This latest state-of-the-art turnkey solution meets Broadcaster’s expectation in term of ease of installation and operating for their early SFN network in ATSC 3.0” says Eric PINSON, Head of Business Unit at TeamCast.
The solution is highlighted at IBC 2017 on TeamCast’s stand #2.B51.
TeamCast has been shortlisted for the IBC 2017 Innovation Awards in the Content Distribution category, for its contribution to the Next Generation Broadcast Architecture Project deployed in the USA by Sinclair Broadcast Group, with support from ONE Media.
