2wcom’s FlexDSR Facilitates Transport Technologies
Particularly suited for dual-stream applications, FlexDSR is a satellite receiver that also serves as a complete AoIP system. The multi-faceted solution, ideal for mixed environments, automatically detects and switches to the best quality source — satellite or IP. The system, which cleverly combines transport technologies, facilitates the reception of transport streams or elementary audio streams via IP with Pro-MPEG FEC and DualStreaming protection against IP packet losses.
FlexDSR can receive and decode audio from a wide range of sources. It is capable of transporting streams via satellite (DVB-S/S2), ASI input and IP, while it can also manage elementary audio streams and Icecast streams via IP.
Able to support audio codecs such as MPEG 1 Layer 2, MP3, AAC LC, HE-AACv1 and HE-AACv2 and Enhanced aptX®, FlexDSR also offers quality uncompressed audio PCM at 48kHz/24bit.
The FlexDSR system allows operators to benefit from a wide range of audio quality and offers a complete, efficient solution able to meet the rigorous needs of broadcasters, allowing them to quickly adapt to various transport scenarios.
“With FlexDSR, we take transport technology one step further by letting broadcasters easily integrate AoIP and satellite and switch from one stream to another, depending on their immediate needs,” said Werner Drews, managing director of 2wcom.
