Rohde & Schwarz Enhance DTV IP Data InserterProvides a maximum of eight parallel time slicing structures (November 14, 2005)
Rohde & Schwarz has added powerful new options to its DTV IP Data Inserter that move the Company past its traditional broadcasting technology to the required playout technology for transporting multimedia data for DVB-H. The Generator R&S DIP010 option makes it possible to insert more than 100 multimedia services into DVB-H channels; and the R&S DIP-H implements the characteristic parameters of the DVB-H standard such as multiprotocol encapsulation, time slicing and additional Reed-Solomon error correction (MPE-FEC).
The R&S DIP010 data inserters horizontal and vertical time slicing configuration, accurate to 1 ms, provides a maximum of eight parallel time slicing structures (sub channeling). The hardware implementation of the Reed-Solomon coder allows dynamic FEC frames with variable code rates and adaptive puncturing to be generated. The time required for generation is constant and does not depend on the number of multimedia services.
The R&S DIP010 can be operated in the MPEG-2 inserter or generator mode, which allows device cascading and ensures scalability of the playout systems. The ALC/FLUTE carousel on the R&S DIP010 in the Web Carousel platform enables playout of electronic program guides (EPG) or other data structures.
The DTV IP Inserter and Generator R&S DIP010 are fully compatible with EN 302304, EN 301192 and EN 300468. Rohde & Schwarz is now shipping the new R&S DIP-H option.
