Enables digital broadcasters to modulate SD and HD streams simultaneously and
increase bandwidth efficiency by 30-50 percent.
Oslo, Norway & Amsterdam, The Netherlands – September 11, 2010
Appear TV, a global provider of next-generation head-ends for broadcast and IP
television, today launches a DVB-T/T2 modulator for SD and HD terrestrial
streams. Appear TV’s full frequency agile and high density modulator module is
capable of producing up to 4 DVB-T or 2 DVB-T2 modulated channels. Several of
these modules can be fitted into a chassis. The product provides broadcasters
with the flexibility to transmit SD and HD services on different PLPs (Physical
Layer Pipes) as well as varying the Forward Error Correction (FEC) and bit rate
parameters for each PLP.
Terrestrial High Definition TV services using DVB-T2 modulation are being trialed
in many countries around the world. More and more cable operators are looking
for ways to distribute terrestrial bouquet via the cable infrastructure to television
viewers. One of the challenges that all sides face is the bandwidth limitations.
DVB-T2 modulation has been shown to offer a 30-50% increase in bandwidth
efficiency compared to traditional DVB-T modulation.
“Appear TV has developed significant modulation knowledge since its inception in
2004,” says Carl-Walter Holst, CEO, Appear TV. “We are therefore pleased to
launch yet another high quality modulation product. We took the decision to
develop a T2 modulator that fits well with our platforms and other modules, to
further advance our leadership in providing high density, feature rich and very
high quality broadcast products. Together with all the other modules in our
platform this must be a perfect solution for anyone wishing to broadcast TV
channels over a terrestrial network”.
