Of SatBroadcasting™ Interest: @ NAB... ENENSYS Will Demo How LATAM Providers Can Lower CAPEX + OPEX

[SatNews] ENENSYS has announced that its flagship OneBeam solution is now compatible with the ISDB-T/Tb standard used across Latin America.
In an ISDB-Tb environment, OneBeam-Tb eliminates the problem of having to send a proprietary stream over the satellite delivery network to transmitters. Instead, the same MPEG-2 transport stream can be delivered over satellite as over the DTT network, allowing the centralized management of regional content. This means that services can easily be monitored across the delivery network because of the standardized signal. It also means that operators have one delivery network with multiple services.
OneBeam-Tb enables operators to re-use existing network equipment and optimizes bandwidth usage for greater cost-efficiency. It enables one or more optimized and clear ISDB-Tb/SBTVD multiplexes over a single satellite feed. ENENSYS’ unique solution allows the building on each transmission site of a new ISDB-T/Tb multiplex, selecting the relevant feed from the main DTH signal. At each transmission site they can easily select the services they require, thereby using one delivery network across multiple regions, yet still offering regionalization.
Already deployed in multiple DVB-T/T2 markets worldwide, OneBeam has been designed from the ground up to solve the problem of being unable to use the same satellite capacity to deliver services for both DTH and DTT networks. Before OneBeam, two separate networks have been required to deliver a content bouquet to DTH and DTT (ISDB-Tb) viewers because receivers for one could not use signals from the other. A solution was an economic imperative for DTT markets, especially in single frequency network (SFN) environments.
Richard Lhermitte, VP of Sales and Marketing, ENENSYS, said, “With the latest update to OneBeam we’ve drawn on our engineering expertise to make the multiple headend and regional transmitter technologies that form OneBeam compatible with the ISDB-Tb standard used across Latin America. It is a key solution in our DTT regionalization and optimization portfolio, providing operators in Latin America with opex and capex savings, vital in such competitive markets.”
OneBeam-Tb will be demonstrated on booth SU6824 at NAB 2015.
