New QAM output module helps operators address growing consumer demand for video services
Oslo and Cologne, 3rd May 2010
Appear TV, a global provider of nextgeneration head-ends for broadcast and IP television, will launch a new QAM
output module in response to cable operators’ demands for increased
transmission bandwidth. Consumers’ growing appetite for video is putting
pressure on operators’ transport networks, which now need to handle services in
both analogue and digital services – and increasing volumes of HD video.
Thomas Lind, Technical Director at Appear TV explains: “Bandwidth is an ongoing
challenge for cable operators – as consumers want an increasing volume and
diversity of services, operators need to increase the capacity of their transport
networks. For some operators this means something as simple as adding another
service or channel is both a technically complex and costly process.
“Our QAM output module enables operators to tackle this challenge head-on, by
enabling them to output 16 MPTS streams per module.”
Appear TV’s new QAM output module can transport up to 16 individual MPTSs and
supports a range of frequencies, from 47 to 862 MHz. The QAM output module
supports multiplexing with PCR and PSI/SI regeneration, as well as transparent
pass-through removing the complexity and workflow from manual regeneration
and ensures that all tables are automatically updated if changes occur on thee
input. Modulation is full digital modulation and up-conversion.
