dB Broadcast Launches Hawkeye DVB-T2 At IBC

A UK independent system integrator and product manufacturer will introduce a DVB-T2 receiver module at IBC 2010.
dB Broadcast's Hawkeye B104 series module has been designed for continuous off air terrestrial reception of DVB-T and DVB-T2 RF signals. The receiver can be used as part of Re-Broadcast transmitter system or for direct monitoring of a transmitter.
The structure of a DVB-T2 signal is complex and requires detailed monitoring to ensure that the correct format is transmitted. The B104 allows a template to be generated, which is used to compare the received DVB-T2 signal against expected parameters and if they are different an alarm can be generated. Eight fixed templates and eight programmable templates are provided and these are configured using a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or by SNMP.
The template parameters include Modulation Error Ration (MER), Low Density Parity Check codes (LDPC), maximum and minimum Transport Stream bit rates, frequency errors and many others. Frequency error is useful at transposer sites to ensure that the transmitter is outputting the correct frequency.
dB Broadcast have already taken significant orders for the DVB-T2 receiver.
Tom Swan, Sales and Marketing Director at dB Broadcast, said: "The DVB-T2 standard was ratified a couple of years ago and is being adopted in many countries because of its higher bandwidth compared to DVB-T. This allows multiple high definition services to be provided on a single multiplex.
"The Hawkeye modular system provides a simple upgrade path from DVB-T to DVB-T2. The B102 DVB-T receiver is replaced by the B104 DVB-T2 receiver, leaving the system wiring unchanged."
