Rohde & Schwarz enhances data inserter for DVB-H

November 3, 2005

Rohde & Schwarz now offers playout technology for transporting multimedia data for DVB-H with the DTV IP inserter and generator R&S DIP010.

The R&S DIP-H option implements the characteristic parameters of the DVB-H standard including multiprotocol encapsulation, time slicing and additional Reed-Solomon error correction (MPE-FEC). The new option makes it possible to insert more than 100 multimedia services into DVB-H channels.

The R&S DIP010 data inserter provides a maximum of eight parallel time slicing structures (sub-channeling) due to the horizontal and vertical time slicing configuration. The accuracy of the time slicing settings is 1ms. The hardware implementation of the Reed-Solomon coder allows dynamic FEC frames with variable code rates and adaptive puncturing to be generated. The time required for generation is constant and does not depend on the number of multimedia services.

The R&S DIP010 can be operated in the MPEG-2 inserter or generator mode, which allows device cascading and ensures scalability of the playout systems. The ALC/FLUTE carousel on the R&S DIP010 in the WebCarousel platform enables playout of electronic program guides or other data structures.
