Teledyne Paradise Datacom (News - Alert) recently unveiled its new Q-FlexV broadcast satellite modem/modulator, for ASI and IP DVB video broadcasts, at the CommunicAsia 2014.
Officials said that the Q-FlexV is a flexible, software-defined modem that provides broadcasters a “single-box” modem and modulator solution packed with all the advanced features they need.
The solution does what you want, now and in the future because updates are achieved by convenient software upgrades via Ethernet or memory stick.
Offering an unmatched Performance-to-Price ratio in comparison to competing alternatives on the market, the Q-FlexV solution replaces the award-winning Vision series. It is also considered ideal for Ultra HDTV, DTH, DSNG, ISP backhaul, fiber restoration and video contribution and distribution services.
A version of Paradise’s popular Q-Flex satellite modem, the Q-FlexV supports IP and ASI interfaces and can multiplex the two together, and also supports both the DVB-S2X and the legacy DVB-S/DSNG standards.
“With the Asian region being such an important market for digital television via satellite, it is only fitting that CommunicAsia (News - Alert) 2014 serves as the launching pad for this leading-edge broadcasting modem and modulator,” said Tony Radford, VP of Sales for Paradise, in a press statement.
He further added: “Q-FlexV delivers all the capabilities digital broadcasters want and need, but does so in a single box, eliminating the additional cost and complexity required to obtain those capabilities in multiple boxes from competitors.”
The new DVB-S2X standard offers enhanced bandwidth efficiency with low spectral roll-off factors and additional choices of modulation and FEC rates.
Q-FlexV makes it ideal for handling high-rate video and IP traffic. Furthermore, featuring dual IF/L-band operation, the solution delivers data rates up to 155Mbps.
In March, TMCnet reported that Teledyne Paradise Datacom, a provider of satellite modem and RF products and subsystems to satcom technology users, demonstrated that its Q-Flex satcom modem can pass over 91.8 Mb/x of TCP accelerated IP.
