TBC Integration delivers DVB-S2 system for Florida satellite network

TBC Integration has delivered a new-generation DVB-S2 satellite broadcast system to the Florida Department of Education that increases usable capacity on the state of Florida's satellite network by up to 20 percent.

Installed by TBC Integration at WFSU-TV, the PBS affiliate in Tallahassee operated by Florida State University, the satellite uplink system is used to broadcast The Florida Channel, The Florida Knowledge Network and other television broadcast services throughout the state of Florida.

The new DVB-S2 technology allows Florida to add satellite channels — for public broadcast, educational services, and commercial enterprises — without increasing its satellite bandwidth costs. It also enables the state to pass on savings to its satellite transponder users.

The integrated, turnkey solution includes Harmonic encoders, Radyne DVB-S2 modulators, an array of Evertz equipment, a Miranda multi-image display, and a Crystal Computer uplink control system. TBC Integration is also supplying Sencore DVB-S2 satellite receive equipment to more than 30 PBS TV stations and Coship DVB-S2 set-top boxes to more than 100 educational sites.
