Bridge Technologies Launches VB262 Dual QAM 8VSB Monitoring Interface

Date: 07/04/2010
Bridge Technologies Launches VB262 Dual QAM 8VSB Monitoring Interface Bridge Technologies has announced the new VB262, a dual QAM/8VSB input module option for its VideoBRIDGE monitoring probes. Providing a powerful real-time monitoring and alarm solution ideal for RF, cable, terrestrial, and PBS operators, the VB262 in combination with the VB220 or the VB120 controller is perfect for hybrid networks where IP is used as a carrier from head-end to the regional edge-multiplexer/modulator/transmitter. The combination provides Gigabit Ethernet connectivity together with advanced RF parameter monitoring in addition to full ETSI TR 101 290 analysis for IP, ASI, and RF in parallel.
 
The VB262's built-in round-robin functionality allows sequential analysis of multiple QAM or 8VSB multiplexes, making it possible to monitor the total broadcast contents of a cable transmission system using a single VB262. By specifying two VB262 modules in a single probe chassis, broadcasters can achieve high-density monitoring in a single 1-inch rack unit. 
 
"The VB262 interface option is an important addition to the VideoBRIDGE monitoring system, delivering a combination of capabilities that is very well suited to the cable industry," said Simen Frostad, chairman, Bridge Technologies. "VB120 or VB220 probes fitted with the VB262 module can be used as part of a VideoBRIDGE system to create a complete end-to-end monitoring tool that gives operators a more comprehensive and effective fault prediction, location, and analysis capability than they've ever had before."
 
The VB262 Dual QAM/8VSB input option card is the solution for complete monitoring in DVB-C or hybrid DVB-C/IP networks. One VB262 module is capable of demodulating a multiplex for ETSI TR 101 290 fault detection and alarm generation in the full frequency band (44 – 855 MHz). By running in an optional sweep mode, the VB262 module is further capable of measuring analog signal levels, in effect offering the operator a basic frequency analyzer function at the deployment location.
 
The award-winning VideoBRIDGE series of probes offer an innovative approach to monitoring and analysis of converging services employing stream-based IP packets. Compatible with all major stream-based industrial standards such as MPEG-2, H.264/AVC, and DVB/ATSC - ETSI TR 101 290, the VideoBRIDGE series offers a complete end-to-end system for the continuous quality assurance of a network. With full support of the innovative MediaWindow™ (patented), the VideoBRIDGE series is at the forefront of IPTV measurement and monitoring technologies.

Vitec Production Solutions at the BSC Expo
Making its official debut at the BSC Expo will be the all-new dual-battery bracket, which enables users to power a Gemini panel with two industry-standard 14.4V broadcast camera batteries mounted directly to the yoke or light stand. With its extremely lightweight and on-board, ballast-free power supply, Gemini has always been easy to transport and rig at on-location shoots. Now it's even more practical in situations where portable power is preferred over mains power, including a broad range of ENG and ENP applications. Unlike competing LED panels, which can only generate 50 percent of their maximum output when battery-powered, Gemini can operate at up to 100 percent intensity running from mains and battery power alike.
