2wcom Preparing SatBroadcasting™ Products For Perusal @ SMPTE 2015 Conference & Exhibition

[SatNews] At SMPTE 2015, 2wcom is highlighting FlexDSR+, the company's highly versatile solution for audio via satellite and IP.

2wcom's FlexDSR02+ satellite receiver.

FlexDSR02+ and FlexDSR04+ offer an unprecedented combination of capabilities in a compact 1U IRD for professional audio contribution via satellite and IP. Far more versatile, powerful and effectively integrated than the previous generation of satellite receivers, the FlexDSR02+ and FlexDSR04+ feature versatile inputs for up to four different programs with analog or digital output, a full regional insert solution, SIRC for inband control via satellite, and automatic weight balancing of quality parameters and program source switching (satellite, IP-line, ASI, SD card) in case of failure. With support for the latest codecs, inbuilt monitoring of operational parameters, and superfast reliable hardware easily upgradeable with software options, the FlexDSR02+ and FlexDSR04+ is the most innovative IRD available.

2wcom's FM2TS MPEG Encoding Gateway.

FM2TS Professional MPEG Encoding Gateway: The FM2TS is an 8-channel FM to MPEG Transport Stream IP gateway that can be used to provide FM audio to cable broadcasters, or to stream 8 FM channels to a quality assurance institution as part of an FM monitoring solution. The FM2TS can also be deployed as a solution for transmission to gap fillers or rebroadcasting. Reducing CAPEX and OPEX by concentrating 8 channels into a single device, the FM2TS also features 2wcom’s future-ready new hardware platform, with support for leading-edge TS and IP functionalities such as multiple MPTS and SPTS generation, IPv6, HTTPS, and SNMPv3.
Hardware Platform: SMPTE 2015 sees the introduction of 2wcom’s new advanced hardware/software platform, designed for high-performance support of forthcoming technical developments including IPV6, IP security HTPS, SNMPV3 and many more. The basis of 2wcom’s new MM01 and FM2TS, the new platform combines 2wcom’s professional satellite receiver functionality with the company’s market-leading IP codec in an architecture readily adaptable for future enhancements.
FM02 FM All-in-one FM Receiver Solution: The FM02 combines 2wcom’s expertise in FM and RDS Monitoring into a single unit that combines the functionality for the multiple roles of demodulation, source-switching for FM backup, and FM/RDS parameter monitoring. As a demodulator, the FM02’s dual inputs can receive one FM signal for rebroadcasting and another for monitoring, or the same signal on both channels for a backup solution.
Single Frequency Network System Solution: Assured SFN synchronization with flexible modular configuration 2wcom will debut a new solution for SFN FM networks at SMPTE 2015 that provides assured μs-accurate synchronization for implementing FM SFN networks with existing analogue transmission infrastructure. Distribution can be by E1, IP or satellite, and any one of the feeds can be selected for backup purposes without affecting the synchronization. Adjustment of runtime differences, jitter etc. is automatic.

2wcom's FlexNsert.

FlexNsert/FlexXtract: DAB+ distribution via satellite The 2wcom FlexNsert DAB+ Distribution Inserter receives a DAB ETI data stream (according to EN 300799), converts the stream into a standard MPEG2-TS-signal and outputs it via ASI or Ethernet transport stream interfaces. The FlexXtract+ DAB+ Distribution Extractor demodulates a data stream (2048 kbps) from a DVB-S or DVB-S2 signal and converts the data into a standard ETI-signal according to EN 300799 or EDI-signal according to TS 102 693 to feed DAB or DAB+ transmitters. Both units offer optional advanced bandwidth saving technology for up to 45% greater efficiency, together with a multi-program regionalization management option.
