Mobile TV equipment is ready from GV
Thomson Grass Valley (SL106) is demonstrating a complete broadcasting solution – which can be implemented today giving broadcasters and service providers a one-stop shop for test and evaluation solutions which can go on to provide a full commercial offering.
The system is fully integrated and provides all the equipment necessary to take a broadcast feed and transmit it in M/H format. The solution is based on a new ATSC-M/H software module for the ADAPT-IV digital exciter, which is incorporated in the Elite, DCX Paragon, and DCX Millennium transmitter families. Adding this software module to proven and highly popular transmitter lines makes it easy for stations to try out mobile television delivery.
At the headend, a new version of the Grass Valley ViBE mobile TV encoding platform provides compression and, together with the NetProcessor 9030 multiplexer, creates a fully ATSC-M/H compatible transport stream .These can be used in conjunction with the Grass Valley Jade electronic service guide generator, and the entire system can be managed centrally using the XMS service management platform.
