Users of the Vvper satellite modulator from TeamCast can now make use of the newly ratified DVB-S2X standard via a software upgrade.
DVB-S2X, an optional extension of DVB-S2, is said to improve efficiency by between 20 and 30%.
Gerard Faria, the chief technology officer at TeamCast, said: "Vyper is able to provide 64 APSK satellite transmissions with just a software upgrade, a new way for our customers to increase their capacity - or decrease their costs. As promised, Vyper is an [evolving] platform that is covering customers' current and future needs."
A Vyper and 64 APSK demo is being shown on the TeamCast stand.
