Appear’s brand-new X10 DSNG Platform supporting encoding/decoding and satellite uplink/downlink in a single rack system
13 October, Oslo, Norway – Appear, the international leader in media processing and shipment innovation, today revealed it has actually introduced a brand-new custom-made option committed to Digital Satellite News Gathering (DSNG). The X10 DSNG consists of a switch module, with integrated satellite reception and ASI IO ports that supports encoding and satellite uplink in a single, 1 rack system (RU) chassis. With increasing needs for live occasion protection, the X10 DSNG is a compact, effective option that fulfills the extremely particular and tough requirements of DSNG and mobile production.
DSNG vans are typically required in combination with outdoors broadcast (OB) vans to support live production for big occasions. While fiber connection has actually ended up being more extensive, or connected with live occasion broadcast, there are still numerous locations that do not have high capability fiber connection, or need satellite transmission as a backup for fiber– which implies DSNG vans still play an essential function in contribution. For DSNG vans, it is essential to have devices that can provide material through satellite or IP ports to support using satellite and fiber shipment concurrently. DSNG vans are usually little with really minimal area. Devices size and power usage are very important aspects when picking devices for DSNG operators, and an option which uses as much performance as possible is a requirement.
Supporting both fiber and satellite shipment, Appear’s X10 DSNG supplies all the performance DSNG operators require for contribution, consisting of encoding/decoding and satellite uplink/downlink, along with incorporated reception and tracking of uplinked signals. With the power to support 1G to 10 G of traffic, the X10 DSNG functions:
- 1 x switch module with double 1G IP IO ports, satellite demodulator and 2 ASI IO ports
- 1 x encoder module
- 1 x satellite modulator module
- 1 x decoder module
Typically, this level of performance is required in numerous RUs. The compact, power effective X10 DSNG provides:
- Multiple channel assistance: Operators can flexibly specify the variety of channels to be encoded and deciphered, plus the variety of satellite regulated outputs required. It can support encoding of 32 HD or 16 UHD channels with 4 HD or 2 UHD channels of decoding (for tracking), while uplinking to a couple of satellite transponders.
- High-capacity streams: The X10 DSNG can support 250 streams guaranteeing it fulfills contribution requirements.
- Compression requirements support: Common compression innovations and video procedures are supported, that makes the X10 DSNG versatile to all functional requirements within contribution, remote production, video networking and circulation. With the modular nature of the X10 DSNG, extra compression requirements can be supported through including JPEG XS and JPEG2000 functions.
- Built-in redundancy: The X10 DSNG is created to be as dependable and failsafe as possible, even when utilized stand-alone, thanks to its integrated modulator redundancy switch. Needs to an internal failure happen, a variety of redundancy alternatives can work to keep the chassis totally functional.
- IP network security: The X10 DSNG has a high-capacity firewall program function that can keep track of and restore traffic as needed.
- Future evidence video procedures: Not just does the X10 DSNG have the capability to deal with all typically utilized video procedures, however the programmable hardware likewise implies that it can support brand-new requirements as and when they are specified.
” Over the past 18 months we’ve seen more remote productions and massive occasions occur, which has actually thrust OB and DSNG into the spotlight, and put more needs on operators. DSNG has an essential function to play, and we’re happy to bring a brand-new option to market that addresses their particular requirements,” states Thomas Bostrøm Jørgensen, Chief Executive Officer at Appear. “The X10 DSNG not just supports fiber and satellite, however with integrated security, redundancy and assistance for a variety of compression innovations and procedures, it is a service that not just satisfies operators requires today, however will continue to support them for many years to come. It is a thorough, effective service, and we’re delighted to see how it satisfies its big capacity in this market.”
The X10 DSNG is offered for business release instantly.
