New IP streamers with multiplexing
On Communic Asia, ASTRO shows new features for the IP streamers for the U - head end platform. Besides the multiplexing option, the frontend for the reception of multistream-transponders has been further developed. Therefore the possible field of application for the DVB-S2 to IP-Streamer has been successfully increased. The devices U 144-X / U 148-X for DVB-S2 in IP and U 164-X / U 168-X for DVB-T/-T2/-C to IP will replace the successful predecessor. In addition to the familiar features for the processing of SPTS and MPTS with RTP and FEC, the new developed frontends offer the option to multiplex four input streams to four output streams. This licensable feature allows an even more efficient alignment of MPTS. The signal density did not change with 24 transponders (FTA) and 12 transponders (with CI) per 19” rack unit.
The ASTRO streamers are plug-in modules for the U 100 base unit. They can convert DVB-S2 / -T2 and -C input signals into IP MPTS and SPTS. The very high signal density of 24 MPTS and up to 1512 SPTS per rack unit saves rack space, energy and combined with the sophisticated redundancy concept, the ASTRO streamers offer highest signal availibility for broadcast applications.
