Nevion’s new DTT capabilities2 September 2013
New digital terrestrial solutions, encompassing new SFN capabilities, improved spectrum utilisation, and DAB/FM distribution to transmitters are the focus for Nevion at IBC.
Now backed by the complete T-VIPS portfolio, Nevion’s DVB-T/T2 solutions are claimed to simplify day-to-day operations, reduce costs, and help the world’s leading service providers and broadcasters take advantage of new revenue streams.
“To remain competitive in the new media landscape, the high efficiency, improved robustness and increased flexibility of digital solutions are essential,” said Helge Stephansen, senior solution architect at Nevion. “We’ve applied smart engineering to make the most of these benefits, maximising efficient use of valuable broadcast frequency spectrum for audio, video and data delivery.”
New at IBC, Nevion’s SFN capabilities include redundancy changeover solutions to maintain SFN operation, centralised and distributed local programme insertion, and multiple solutions to build reliable SFN networks over varying network types – IP, satellite or wireless. Nevion’s enhanced DVB-T2 solutions feature EPG insertion that is said to provide up to 5% increase in spectrum efficiency. Contribution via visually lossless, extremely low latency JPEG2000 compression is claimed to provide enhanced quality for final DTT broadcasts, as well as the ability to offer additional services.
Nevion says that new DAB/FM distribution to transmitters enables cost-effective migration from microwave to terrestrial IP-based infrastructure for DAB+ broadcasting, with bitrate-efficient FM radio distribution by APTX audio compression over IP.
Nevion’s DVB-T/T2 solutions include the cProcessor line of transport stream processing solutions, the DVB-T2 Gateway suite providing full-featured HD content delivery, seamless switching and monitoring solutions, and Connect remote monitoring and management solution.
