Established for 10 years, NyeTec is a growing family run company. We believe traditional service and support of our clients is paramount. Terry Nye, as MD of the company, has over 30 years experience in Television, building on a solid foundation at the IBA, and having installed several of worlds first Digital Head Ends. NyeTec will be shortly moving into a new Head Office in Chandlers Ford. As part of our expansion plans we have appointed an additional engineer to provide support to our customers.

NyeTecs impressive range offers comprehensive Test & Measurement solutions from the worlds leading manufacturers of affordable equipment. Its primary representation of DekTec in the UK & Ireland provides a strong, one-stop portfolio covering MPEG Test and Measurement Equipment covering ASI, IP, and all standards of RF interfaces.

DekTec has become a market leader through its innovation and focus on developing Test & Measurement around the ubiquitous computing platforms, now encompassing tablets as well. This has ensured that each and every engineer has an easy to use tool in a highly portable format. Over the past twelve years this has enabled change in the workflow by combining portability, affordability and simplicity, of what were previously complex and expensive pieces of equipment.
Recent new products from DekTec enables NyeTec to provide complete test solutions covering the uncompressed SDI, HD-SDI segment with a highly innovative DTU-351 leading the pack. A USB-3 HD-SDI receiver, with DekTec easy to use applications it can make a tablet into a fully un-compressed HD-SDI hard-disk recorder and Waveform/Vector scope.

This innovation follows its previous market changing product, DTU-245, now an Industry standard! Many have called it the Swiss-Army knife for the broadcast engineer! Capable of recording, playingout, decoding analysing ASI, SDI and IP( through NIC) signals.

To complement the portable trouble-shooting equipment, DekTec has introduced Xpect, a 24/7 monitoring application running on DekTec`s huge range of interface adapters covering all the transmission standards. Xpect V3.0 released recently, brings to the market a highly configurable tool capable of monitoring hundreds of Transport Streams completely and simultaneously for TR-101-290 monitoring. A Template matching facility allows clients to monitor service related measurements and configure the test parameters finely to ensure optimised alarming can be achieved.

Yet the same platform provides a comprehensive Mosaic, for Transport streams. Whilst SNMP is standard, the use of SOAP interface has enabled this platform to be used in a customised way, to suit individual clients requirements. It is in this area Where NyeTec has excelled with its technical competence to understand each clients requirement and provide the correct solution.

Through its thorough understanding of the complete installation of Xpect application, NyeTec has recently entered into the supply of HDMI switching and extension equipment form Satson, This has enabled Xpect Mosaic display to be neatly extended into the MCR.

Fault finding signals in rack rooms, where a mixture of signals types are present has traditionally been a problem, with engineers seeking a single hand held product to trace any of the signals formats present. From Deviser, the S7000 offers the perfect solution at a price point that is difficult to match. Now able to monitor IP signals as well as ASI, DVB-C, DVB-T, DVB-T2, DVB-S, DVB-S2 and DVB-C providing signal metrics such as level, BER and MER. The signal can be decoded, both SD and HD, constellation diagrams and spectrum plots displayed where appropriate. A TS analyser is also included. Copies of all screens can be saved, in addition to the incoming transport streams, to the internal 8 GB hard drive or a USB stick. Report writing has never been easier.
From our partner, VideoFlow, we have an impressive, efficient and cost effective backup solution for Primary Video feeds capable of delivering live, high quality video (SD, HD and above) over standard Internet connections. In a typical system deployment, the VideoFlow solution eliminated 475msec of jitter in a seven-hop network (Eastern Europe).

NyeTec continues to evolve by introducing the innovative and affordable solutions by listening to our client base.
