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 presenting TYGER, a high capacity DVB-S2X modulator for demanding broadcast and broadband satellite services at the Satellite 2017 show.
TYGER is a new satellite modulator from TeamCast offering the same high level of performance as the well known DVB-S/S2/S2X VYPER modulators, with the benefit of an unprecedented high throughput.
Tyger offers rates up to 480 Mbaud for DVB-S2 and DVB-S2X standards, meaning up to 2 Gbps useful rates.
For IP transport, TYGER uses the latest GSE adaptation algorithm. This insures lower overhead and maximized capacity and spectrum efficiency.
TYGER is also meeting the requirements of the DVB “Annex M”, making it capable of mixing services (broadcast and broadband) over the same satellite carrier. Specifically, it supports Time-Slicing, a process to split a wideband signal – up to 2 Gbps – into a great number of independent low rates services, in order to keep the receiver ICs complexity and price low, which is a mandatory requirement for a mass market adoption.
“This new modulator opens new possibilities for operators in terms of capacity, spectrum efficiency and flexibility. After the widely recognized VYPER modulator range for broadcast applications, TeamCast is innovating again with unprecedented performances in satellite communication products for HTS broadband and broadcast markets” says Christophe Trolet, Business Unit Manager at TeamCast.
The TYGER can be seen on TeamCast’s booth #1940, with a live demonstration of Unicast TV distribution over a Multicast satellite link, in cooperation with Broadpeak.
