Viewers of this year’s Indianapolis 500 were treated to 12 unique drivers-seat views using Adtec Digital’s MPEG 4 compression and multiplexing, along with Newtec’s Clean Channel Technology (CCT) DVBS2 technology, under the professional operation of Alabama-based Mobile Satellite Connection. “The system worked, and worked perfectly,” said Adtec Digital SVP of Sales and Co-Founder Kevin Ancelin. “We handled the local 12 in-car feeds and back-hauled them on one 36 MHz transponder delivering 138.2Mbs using 32APSK CCT modulation. The 12 in-car pre-compressed camera feeds sourced Adtec’s award winning MPEG4 compression which was in turn multiplexed and transmitted employing Newtec’s 32APSK (CCT) DVBS2 modulation. At the downlink, Adtec’s RD-60 32APSK capable IRD demodulated and decoded the services for delivery to the leading sports network’s HLS encoder farm.” The RD-60 supports MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 platforms with 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 HD and SD decoding. It features 16 channels of audio. "Mobile Satellite was excited to play a part in implementing this ground breaking contribution configuration. With Adtec's compression, and Newtec's Clean Channel Technology, we are able to create high throughput, high quality, reliable solutions that can increase workflow and improve quality of service," stated Eric W. Kludt, technical manager Mobile Satellite Connection. www.adtecinc.com
