Ukraine's Zeonbud Rolls Out DVB-T2

News Image
Harris Corporation's Selenio media convergence platform is helping Zeonbud launch its national DVB-T2 broadcast network in the Ukraine.
Harris' Selenio is a turnkey DVB-T2 video headend solution for Zeonbud, which was awarded four DVB-T2 multiplex licenses to deliver 32 channels on a national or local basis. The licenses will allow Zeonbud to operate digital terrestrial television (DTT) services to 95 percent of the country.
Featuring the Harris Selenio media convergence platform at its core, the national video headend system will facilitate broadcast content distribution via satellite from the city of Kiev to 167 transmitters across the country. Selenio provides Zeonbud with a complete, compact and centralized video headend solution for DVB-T2 video processing and networking, as opposed to a traditional headend solution that uses multiple boxes for different functions.
Launched in 2011, Selenio utilizes an ultra-compact, energy-efficient 3RU modular chassis with 14 hot-swappable slots that is useful for combining multiple workflow functions in a broadcast or new media environment. In a mission-critical national video headend environment, Selenio is ideal for combining specialized cards for encoders, multiplexers, DVB-T2 over-the-air broadcast adaptation, and embedded control and supervision — making DVB-T2 rollouts significantly easier to implement.
"Harris has succeeded in distilling an enormous amount of technical expertise into a single compact platform," said Vladimir Prokopenko, head of network operations center, Zeonbud. "This is a complete solution for our VHE requirements, allowing Zeonbud to construct a highly efficient, effective and resilient distribution infrastructure within a very short timescale."
Harris is also supplying its Videotek MSA multi-stream analyzer to provide confidence monitoring with full testing of compressed video conformance, audio levels and data services. Zeonbud engineers can monitor any incoming or outgoing streams from the video headend in real-time.
