DTT monitoring Royal Thai Army Radio and Television is using Bridge Technologies monitoring systems to provide real-time analysis and monitoring of the multiplexes transmitted from its TV5 headquarters in Sanampao, Bangkok. The signals are being sent over third-party contribution links to a regional uplink site. “To encourage customers away from analogue to an all-digital terrestrial service we have to guarantee a better quality of service,” said Colonel Yosapon Meeprom, director of technical and broadcasting Dept, Thai TV5. “Because our multiplexes are carried over commercial links that we don’t directly control, we need enforceable SLAs, and for these we use technical metrics that the Bridgetech system precisely measures in real-time.” DTT transmission ENENSYS Technologies has revealed that Mexico’s Televisa is using its switcher technology as part of a wider DTT (ATSC) network rollout. ENENSYS delivered a large volume of its ASIGuard II switchers for installation at transmitter sites across the country, as well as its new ASIIPSwitch and HDc chassis platform, for secure microwave links in seamless switching mode. Sergio Len, DTT compression systems manager at Televisa said” “It will provide a highly reliable ASI stream that is delivered onward to DTT transmission systems. We are confi dent in the stream analysis capabilities of ENENSYS equipment, and we can let the switch decide which stream is on air.” File Transfer Metus has announced the integration of its media workfl ow system with FileCatalyst Direct, an accelerated fi le transfer solution, created by Ottawa, Canada based Unlimi-Tech Software Inc., an Emmy® Award winning pioneer in managed fi le transfers.
