Adtec Digital To Show New Encoder/Modulator at BVE 2013

Adtec Digital will showcase a new high definition DSNG/contribution encoder/modulator in the M&J Communications stand, H-39, at BVE 2013, Feb. 26-28 in London. Targeting DSNG, SD, HD and 3D contribution, distribution and fixed
circuit trunking applications, the ultra-low delay EN-91P DSNG contribution encoder/modulator combines high-efficiency AVC 4:2:2 compression with lightning-fast processing for flexible delivery of video for time-sensitive and bandwidth-limited applications.

“Paired with our RD-70 IRD, the EN-91P can deliver full frame 1080P HD video and 16 channels of phase aligned audio with an end-to-end latency of 3 frames; when passing PCM or Dolby E audio the latency can be reduced to 1 frame,”,” said Kevin Ancelin, senior vice president of sales for Adtec Digital. “So now, in the blink of a human eye, you can now send contribution quality HD video around the globe using IP-based networks, ASI fiber or DVBS/S2 satellite delivery.”

The EN-91P allows concurrent encoding and streaming to IP, ASI and L-Band or IF DVBS/S2. The DVBS/S2 modulator modes support QPSK up to 32APSK based on software licenses. The EN-91P supports high definition and standard definition MPEG 4 AVC/H.264 video with 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 Chroma sampling, and up to eight pairs of audio, with pass-through support for PCM, 16-bit and 20-bit DolbyE and Dolby AC3 2.0 and 5.1.

Standard features include time code, captions, Teletext, AFD, and redundant power supplies. Control and monitoring options include SNMP, web, and push-button front panel interfaces. Both the EN-91P and RD-70 are fully interoperable with leading third-party receivers and encoders.

“The EN-91P’s AVC 4:2:2 codec is far more efficient than JPEG-based codecs, whether your platform is DSNG satellite, ASI fiber or IP delivery,” Ancelin added. “That’s why Adtec products have become the compression and decoding solutions of choice for broadcast professionals globally.”

“For price, performance and operator ease of use you will not find a better solution,” said Michael Armstrong, key account manager – UK – EU North at Adtec Digital.
