ORS (Austrian Broadcasting Services) is deploying DVB-T2 Gateways from T-VIPS for the distribution of DVB-T2 programming as part of a new nationwide Austrian terrestrial service. In addition to the deployment of the T-VIPS CP560 T2 Gateways at its DVB-T2 playout centre in Vienna, ORS will deploy the T-VIPS TNS541 Seamless TS Monitoring Switch and TNS547 DTT Monitor. The T-VIPS solutions were delivered by T-VIPS’ Austrian business partner, TV-Connect.
The CP560 DVB-T2 Gateway provides a central point of control for DVB-T2 networks. It adapts the transport stream to the DVB-T2 Modulator Interface format and enables the DVB-T2 Modulator Interface to control the modulator parameters and provides the accurate timing and rate control required for SFN operation. The CP560 provides flexible interfacing with ASI or IP inputs and DVB-T2 MI outputs over ASI and IP. The TNS541 and TNS547 monitor critical points in the transmission chain, enabling operators to detect issues and take corrective actions before viewers experience problems.
“Not only does T-VIPS have great depth of DVB-T2 experience, it also has the broadest portfolio of gateway, monitoring and switching solutions designed specifically for DTT, making it the ideal partner to power the DVB-T2 part of our innovative hybrid project,” says Peter Knorr, Head of DVB Systems Planning at ORS. “I look forward to the T-VIPS solutions ensuring that the DTT element of our new hybrid service provides Austria’s consumers with the best possible terrestrial video offering.”
