DTC Broadcast Announces Sale To CCTV

News Image
DTC Broadcast has announced the sale of 16 complete AEON-TX 4K transmitters, PRORXD-AEON receivers, antennas and ancillaries to Chinese broadcaster CCTV.

According to DTC Regional Sales Manager- APAC, Gareth James: "This landmark sale is a major entrée into this vast market, and what better way to enter than with the AEON-TX. It further illustrates the value of having a strong partner in the region, and we're proud to partner with Ideal Systems."

DTC Broadcast's AEON group of products are specifically designed for the 4K market.
The AEON 4K encoder makes more efficient use of the HEVC algorithm, which in this case means it can take a 12G signal and compress it to a bitrate that can be managed over an RF link.

The 16 AEON-TX's are going to be utilised for high profile events. Multiple versions from the AEON transmitter family have become the choice for such events due to their exceptional range, reliability, and robust build quality.

According to James: "Among its many attributes what really caught the eye, and ultimately made the sale, was AEON's dual-pedestal capability, which makes it exceptionally reliable at high resolutions, and future proof."

Picture quality is determined by the number of bits that can be transmitted over RF and still maintain the link. Transmitting fewer bits provides a more reliable link, but results in unacceptable picture quality. AEON-TX, dual pedestal approach gets around this problem by enabling 32 megabits of data to be sent over a 16-QAM channel. For any live broadcast, that’s not just huge in terms of reliability, it’s more than enough to just as reliably transmit 4K – or, if preferred, four channels of HD in any format – over a single link.
