IBC 2007 (Stand 3.311i & Mobile Zone 383)
TeamCast is introducing at the IBC 2007 convention, several new OEM product families for the deployment of DVB-SH (Satellite services to Handhelds) compliant Mobile TV networks, as well as several extensions to its successful ModulCast range of OEM modules for all forms of DVB transmissions.
The MSH-2000 Modulator family, a range of high performance modulators for building the terrestrial repeaters in urban and dense areas which will reinforce the signals coming from the satellites.
The RSH-1000 Demodulator family, a range of professional receivers / demodulators for monitoring DVB-SH transmissions in the field.
The SSH-2000 Signal Generator family, a range of signal generators for testing DVB-SH chips and receivers, either at the development stage or in the manufacturing process.
All these families offer a number of models ready to be used in different frequency bands, such as Intermediate Frequency (IF), UHF and S-Band.
“We are delighted to be the first in the world to introduce OEM DVB-SH technology into the Mobile TV marketplace”, says Jean-Luc Pavy, CEO of TeamCast. “Starting from our recognised and deep expertise in Mobile TV technology – DVB-H, FLO, T-DMB – we have been contributing significantly to the DVB-SH standardisation process and to the first field trials, in order to be able to introduce so early a completely validated DVB-SH product family”.
These products are shipping from June 2007, and are used in the first trials being implemented during summer 2007 in several parts of the world.
TeamCast is introducing at the IBC 2007 convention, several extensions to its successful ModulCast range of OEM modules.
The RXS-1000 demodulator is a DVB-S / DVB-S2 demodulator to be used in conjunction with a DVB-T / DVB-H, FLO or DVB-SH modulator, to provide a broadcast transmitter or repeater with a satellite input feed.
The internal GPS receiver option for DVB-T / DVB-H, FLO, ATSC or DVB-SH modulators allows the synchronising of the modulators, both in the time and frequency domains, for perfect transmitter synchronisation, including for the demanding “Single Frequency Network” mode of operation.
“These two extensions are ideal for our customers wishing to build optimized transmitters and repeaters, whenever a satellite feed or perfect synchronisation is a requirement”, says Eric Pinson, Broadcast Product Line Manager at TeamCast. “In comparison with using additional “black boxes” offering satellite demodulation and GPS signal reception, these function extensions are definitely a most cost effective option for our customers. This is particularly valuable at a time when the network coverage extensions will require large quantities of lower power transmitters, fed by satellite, and synchronised for SFN operation”.
These products will start shipping in Q4 2007.
