WORK Microwave To Showcase At CommunicAsia

News Image
WORK Microwave is to showcase the latest upgrades to its DVB-S2 Broadcast Modulator, Video ACM System, and Fifth-Generation Frequency Converter Series at this year's CommunicAsia show.

DVB-S2 Broadcast Modulator
WORK Microwave's DVB-S2 Broadcast Modulator provides operators with a solution for IP network links and TV contribution. The DVB-S2 Broadcast Modulator has been enhanced with Carrier Identification (CID) support, according to the industry standard ETSI TS 103 129, enabling satellite operators to identify and eliminate interference between satellite signals.
Powered by a combination of video and IP technologies, the DVB-S2 Broadcast Modulator offers a feature set that helps operators get the most out of expensive satellite bandwidth, optimise data transport, and dramatically improve satellite signal quality. Innovative features include DVB-S2 multistream, TSoIP, and wideband (up to 80Mbaud). In addition, the DVB-S2 Broadcast Modulator platform supports next-generation DVB-S2 extensions, providing operators with a future-proof solution.
In addition to being on display at the WORK Microwave booth, the DVB-S2 modulators and modems with the DVB-CID technology will be showcased during the Satellite Interference Reduction Group's (IRG) Carrier ID Tour at CommunicAsia, June 17-18. The tour will highlight all aspects of the Carrier ID process, from transmission to detection and resolution.

Video ACM System
WORK Microwave will also showcase its Video ACM System at CommunicAsia2014. Aimed at video contribution applications, the integrated data/video (DaVid) modem and encoding solution improves an operator's satellite link budget, enhancing video quality and reducing operational expenses. The integrated solution includes WORK Microwave's DVB-S2 Modem SK-DV and the EN-91 MPEG-4 HD ultra-low delay encoder from Adtec Digital.
Utilising the Video ACM solution, operators can transport multiple MPEG transport streams – up to six – and IP data into a DVB-S2 multistream, enabling simultaneous transportation of data (network connection) and live broadcasting (video content) over a single satellite carrier.
Multichannel ACM functionality reduces the margin traditionally required for rain fade. Satellite link performance is optimised in real time as link and weather conditions change, resulting in increased link availability. Transport stream null packet deletion and re-insertion further optimise satellite capacity, enabling operators to reuse bandwidth for IP data. As the MODCOD changes, WORK Microwave's DVB-S2 Modem SK-DV seamlessly communicates with Adtec Digital's EN-91 encoder and automatically changes the video rate.
During a live, interactive demonstration at the booth, visitors can see interoperability between the DVB-S2 Modem SK-DV and Adtec Digital's EN-91 encoder. The demonstration will highlight the following key features and benefits: reuse of clear sky margin for improved video quality, automatic scaling to the maximum MODCOD for optimal video quality, improved link availability resulting in reduced operational costs, and optimized Ka-band usage for video contribution.

Fixed Frequency Block Converters
At CommunicAsia2014, WORK Microwave will unveil a new Ethernet port for its Fixed Frequency Block Converters that simplifies remote configuration and monitoring of the device. Other improvements on display will include Ka-band support for uplink and downlink services, superior phase noise, and adjustable slope compensation.
