Sencore Announces Blade for Comprehensive Monitoring of Both DVB-T and DVB-T2 Broadcast Signals

Date: 31/01/2012

Sencore, a leading provider of signal quality and video delivery solutions, today announced the launch of a dual-input DVB-T/T2 interface module that enables monitoring of DVB-T and DVB-T2 broadcast signals directly from an antenna. The latest member of Sencore's VideoBridge(TM) monitoring family, the VB252 is ideal for use by broadcasters to monitor their own transmissions, or by cable, IPTV, and satellite providers to monitor the local broadcasts they receive for distribution.

 
"Our new VB252 gives operators an easy-to-use tool that provides a continuous view of the signal from input to distribution, enabling them to quickly detect and correct transmission errors before they reach viewers," said Jeff Briden, vice president of product management and customer satisfaction at Sencore. "By providing a view of the signal that isn't available just by using a receiver, the VB252 can help reduce operational costs and improve the end-customer experience."
 
With its standard DVB-T and DVB-T2 tuners, the VB252 offers full support for receiving and measuring both types of signals. In fact, the VB252 is the first system monitoring product of its type to support the emerging DVB-T2 standard, which is replacing the existing DVT-T infrastructure in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, parts of Asia, and parts of South America. DVB-T2 allows signal distribution to transmitter sites via IP in addition to synchronous distribution methods like satellite.
 
The VB252 is available as a blade that fits into a Sencore VB200 chassis and is controlled by either the VB220 or VB120 probe. These components, working in tandem with other blades and probes that make up a complete VideoBridge monitoring system, enable operators to gain a unique insight into their video delivery systems from ingest to the end customer.
 
The VB252 and VB120 blade/probe combination enables monitoring of IP network distribution (for up to 50 IP multicasts) together with DVB-T2 and, through a new feature in the VB120, T2-MI signals between broadcast studio and transmitter. (T2-MI is a new standard that defines the communication protocol used between the T2 gateway and the DVB-T2 modulator to carry synchronization information for SFN broadcasting.) Also, by equipping the monitoring chassis with the VB270 satellite interface module, users can gain valuable insight into operations that utilize both IP and satellite for distributing signals to transmitter sites.

Gigcasters Achieves Broadcast Quality Live Streaming with the Zixi OnAir Mobile App

Gigcasters, a live streaming engineering company, has seen mobile production increase during the pandemic and witnessed first-hand the benefits of higher frequency, lower cost productions using Zixi’s OnAir app infrastructure. The company first tried live video delivery remotely using laptops and WebRTC, but found the reliability of the feed was not good, and packet loss and image quality were insufficient. Once the Zixi OnAir app was quickly enabled on local production teams’ mobile phones, getting a broadcast-quality feed was easy.
