Triveni, Harmonic show IP-based ATSC headend solution

Triveni Digital and Harmonic displayed an IP-based ATSC headend solution incorporating Triveni Digital’s GuideBuilder program and system information protocol (PSIP) generation system at Harmonic’s NAB2007 booth.

GuideBuilder is integrated with Harmonic’s ATSC headend, which includes the DiviCom MV 500 HD MPEG-2 encoder, Electra 5000 SD MPEG-2 encoder and ProStream 1000 stream processing platform with DiviTrackIP statistical multiplexing.

The solution provides broadcasters with an IP-based infrastructure that enhances their service offering by supporting multiple HD and SD channels in the allocated spectrum.

The GuideBuilder system generates accurate PSIP data, which forms the foundation for ATSC digital television transport streams and supports digital cable carriage of over-the-air broadcasts.
