Newtec at CabSat 2011
DualFlow is a new technology that allows broadcasters to migrate cost-effectively from traditional ASI to IP-based satellite operation, with efficient investment during the transition period. Aimed at the contribution, DSNG and distribution markets, DualFlow enables two-way IP interactivity over satellite and allows operators to choose when they make the switch to IP by simultaneously supporting both ASI and IP. Operators can therefore continue to service clients using ASI and cater to clients already converted to IP operation. DualFlow is available as part of Newtec's Azimuth satellite broadcasting modulation equipment.
Release 8 of Newtec's Azimuth and Elevation professional equipment products for broadcast and IP over satellite applications adds AES encryption for full protection of the satellite link, a new full C-band upconverter, a completely new Graphical User Interface (GUI), Generic Stream Encapsulation (GSE) for Elevation IP products, extended Layer 1 and Layer 2 shaping functionality and more. A full broadcast uplink and downlink set-up will be available at CABSAT 2011.
Newtec is also launching a new low-rate LDPC satellite modem, the Zenith ZN461 at CABSAT 2011.
FlexACM is a unique end-to-end solution — combining a range of cutting-edge technologies — for implementing ACM technology, IP shaping, compression, and acceleration in a very efficient way for IP trunking and IP backbone satellite links. The implementation of FlexACM can result in a doubling of the data throughput in a given satellite segment while also guaranteeing 100-percent link availability and reducing OPEX by up to 50 percent. With FlexACM, it is also possible to benefit from the advantage of ACM without the inconvenience of varying throughputs. FlexACM is available as part of Newtec's Elevation product family, which consists of DVB-S2 IP satellite modulators, demodulators, modems and satellite IP appliances.
Multimedia Exchange Network over Satellite (MENOS) is a revolutionary award-winning networking system used to exchange multimedia content over satellite. Aimed at professional broadcast applications, MENOS allows operators to share video and audio material among several sites scattered across a large geographical area. Proven in operation by ASBU/Arabsat, MENOS incorporates the fastest and most cost-effective technologies for media exchange, with a complete range of tools to facilitate coordination and communication among personnel across the network. Investment costs in DSNGs can be shared through use of the OpenDSNG platform, which allows broadcasters to equip and use a DSNG on both the MENOS network and existing legacy TV contribution networks.
Sat3Play is an affordable two-way satellite broadband system designed for IP-based service providers such as ISPs wanting to offer competitive voice, data and television services in areas where insufficient terrestrial broadband connectivity is available. Offering significant cost-of-ownership reductions through consumer self-installation, DVB-S2 ACM and adaptive return terminals, and a flexible migration path from Ku to Ka band, Sat3Play is a highly effective end-to-end solution.
At CABSAT 2011 Newtec is launching a brand new 800 mW terminal for the Sat3Play broadband system, bringing increased return speeds and higher efficiency, as well as an additional 1m antenna for Sat3Play terminals. These two additions extend the capabilities of Sat3Play for B2B applications.
