TeamCast—Technology Showcase @ IBC2014 (Event—SatBroadcasting™)

[SatNews] The DVB-S2X compliant, 64 APSK modulation with Vyper satellite modulators will be demonstrated at IBC2014—new capabilities of the recently released extensions to DVB-S2 will be demonstrated live on the TeamCast stand 2B51.

The Vyper satellite modulator is continuing on its road towards higher efficiency. The modulator's high RF quality enables customers to use the world's first 32 APSK transmissions. Vyper is now able to provide 64 APSK satellite transmissions with just a software upgrade, a new way for customers to increase their capacity or decrease their satellite transmission costs. Vyper already includes DVB-S2X features like low roll off.

One of TeamCast’s newest products on the radar, OEM DVB-S/S2/S2X and DVB-DSNG modulator, will also be showcased. This brand new OEM satellite modulator is offering unprecedented features and high performances in IF and L-band frequency bands on the same platform. Using a new hardware design with high capacity, VYP is introduced on the market with traditional satellite standards such as DVB-S, DVB-DSNG, DVB-S2 as well as DVB-S2X (the latest extensions of DVB-S2) and will thrive over the next 10 years evolutions.
