Point-To-Point Perfection For ABS Via Newtec

Newtec AZ110 satellite modulator Newtec has announced that Asia Broadcast Satellite (ABS) is working with the Company to optimize their point-to-point transmissions services via satellite.

In addition to the existing IP platforms, already using Newtec’s DVB-S2 technology, ABS chose to deal again for their broadcast platform. Using Newtec’s DVB-S2 modulator and demodulator technology, Asia Broadcast Satellite’s customers can transport live video content from their studios and live events directly to ABS gateway teleports efficiently and reliably. These live video contribution feeds are then multiplexed, encrypted and uplinked to full transponder MCPC platforms on ABS-1 for payTV distribution and DTH broadcasting. Customers benefit from lower bandwidth and power requirements, flexible transmission options and significant cost savings over international fiber — as well as getting access to the extensive coverage of the ABS-1 satellite. Newtec’s integrated high-order DVB-S2 modulation solution consists of Newtec’s Azimuth Broadcast satellite modulator, the AZ110, and a demodulator, the AZ910, in full compliance with the DVB standards for guaranteed interoperability.
