TeamCast, the world-renowned leader in digital modulation technologies for Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) and Satellite Applications, is introducing VYPER 3000, a new, third generation modulator designed to meet the high availability requirements of modern up-link systems.
Its two power supplies allow having redundant mains feeds.
Its four IP inputs can be used as two data inputs (one main, one back-up) and two control ports (one main, one back-up).
Its four ASI inputs can be used as one main and two back-ups or as four inputs for multi-stream operation. For instance, four different multiplexes can be carried on a single carrier to feed four different terrestrial channels in Direct-to-Tower applications. Similarly up to four independent signals can be carried over a single carrier in DSNG applications. The IP inputs allow the same multi-stream operation as well.
The operational redundancy is easily configured using the embedded web server. Furthermore IP inputs can be the back-up for ASI inputs and vice-versa.
VYPER 3000 is inheriting the recognized benefits of previous VYPER generations: high quality output signal, full support of DVB-S/S2/S2X and DVBDSNG modes and codes including 64 APSK modes and 5% Roll-Off values for a maximized useful payload, IF and RF outputs, insertion of CID data, easy control through front panel and web-browser.
"With this new solution optimized to facilitate the design of critical up-link systems embedding a complete redundancy in signal and energy distribution, this new VYPER 3000 satellite modulator developed by TeamCast is again paving the way towards rich and flexible operational capabilities, resulting in a higher level of system reliability for our customers" says Christophe Trolet, Business Unit Manager at TeamCast.
