    NES Communications recently installed two Sencore SMD 989 DVB-S/S2 satellite modulators into their newest HD digital satellite uplink truck. We are happy to share that at this year’s HD World Show NES Comm and Sencore are providing live demonstrations of the vehicle’s full range of capabilities --including the SMD 989’s ability to modulate 8PSK, 16APSK and 32 APSK formats.

    In the last post we reviewed some terminology and configuration parameters that are common when setting up an MPEG/IP delivery network. In that post, we mentioned that IP was originally developed for delivering sporadic burst of data. We also mentioned that in order to deliver video data it must arrive on time and in sequence at the intended destination.  Because timing is everything for optimal video delivery, the ability to accurately monitor points throughout the network helps to ensure the best possible video experience for the viewer.

    IP and Gigabit Ethernet networks provide a flexible, scalable, and cost-effective way to transport video, audio, voice and data. Because of these advantages, the use of IP based infrastructures to move compressed video within and between broadcast facilities is gaining popularity with professional broadcasters and content providers.

    The need for MPEG-2 and H.264 decoding continues to expand for content providers. As the world transitions from analog to digital it becomes more and more challenging to satisfy growing signal transmission and video delivery demand, including the increasing hunger for HD; the result is an ongoing search for fast, flexible and cost-effective solutions for decode applications.

    We are gearing up to join thousands of broadcast and video professionals at this year’s IBC show in Amsterdam. The show will be held from September 9th through the 13th. Part of the preparation for the show means developing new product demonstrations. This year we will showcase new video content delivery products and techniques to improve bandwidth efficiency, isolation network issues and provide the best possible video signal to your customer.

    The increased demand for HD services and channel count has video content delivery providers on the lookout for ways to deliver these services while still reducing costs. These demands create many challenges such as working within bandwidth limitations, archiving materials, and balancing standards and formats like HD, SD, H.264, and MPEG2.

    If you are a broadcast operator, teleport or uplink facility - you are continually faced with evaluating CAPEX expenditures.  One area to gain efficiency and therefore reduce costs is through reduced bandwidth usage. This pertains particularly to video distribution, contribution and newsgathering applications.
