REACH is extending its HD satellite capabilities with a comprehensive Contribution & Distribution solution from TANDBERG Television
that includes encoding, multiplexing, modulation and professional receivers. The equipment is being used at Asia’s largest commercial teleport in Hong Kong and at satellite earth stations in Sydney and Perth. Using the TANDBERG Television C&D equipment, REACH provides video contribution circuits for TV networks and Pay TV operators covering SD, HD and DVB-S2 capabilities.
REACH is using TANDBERG Television E5720 MPEG-2 SD encoders, E5782 MPEG-2 HD encoders and the MX8400 multiplexer (which includes statistical and re-multiplexing capabilities). The company has also installed TANDBERG Television’s widely deployed SM6620 modulators, which support DVB-S, DVB-DSNG and DVB-S2 modulation modes, and RX1290 Integrated Receiver Decoders, which are multi-format decoders with ASI interfaces as standard.
