All-New Capability Enables Head-End Operators to Simultaneously Feed DTH Receivers and DVB-T2 Transmitters With a Single Multiplex.
Easily activated through a simple reconfiguration of the NetProcessor 9030/40 or RD1100, Thomson Video Networks’ SingleFeed solution offers a flexible solution for regionalization of DVB-T2 multiplexes. SingleFeed enables head-end operators to preserve resources and bandwidth for distributing bouquets of services to both DTH satellite and terrestrial transmitters. The function’s unique system architecture provides significant cost savings by enabling operators to send a multiplex only once to feed both the DTH receiver and the DVB-T2 transmitters — without requiring additional equipment at DVB-T2 transmission sites or extra devices for each transmitter in areas that require regionalization.
“There are similar solutions on the market, but SingleFeed actually represents a first for the industry because it is directly implemented in the DVB-T2 gateway for both the multiplexer and the receiver/descrambler,” Cloirec added. “The solution reinforces Thomson Video Networks’ leadership in the terrestrial head-end market and shows our commitment to supporting our customers as new DVB standards emerge.”
