The ATSC Master II FD includes several important features necessary to fit into modern video servers.
At IBC2005 in Amsterdam next month, DVEO will show the ATSC Master II FD, a PCI card designed to import and export transport streams via the SMPTE 310M standard. The ATSC Master II FD is designed to replace the DVEO ATSC Master FD.
The new card includes several important features necessary to fit into modern video servers, such as the mechanical bypass on power failure, secondary input and watchdog timer.
In North America, television head-end equipment uses the SMPTE 310M interface to carry MPEG-2 transport streams between video servers and back end equipment such as transport stream multiplexers, ad inserters, electronic program guides, and of course ATSC (COFDM) modulators.
