Televisa Powered by Newtec Technology
Newtec – a specialist in designing, developing and manufacturing equipment and technologies for satellite communications – today announced its DVB-S2X broadcast technologies are being used in Televisa’s nationwide end-to-end primary distribution system, with its MCX7000 Multi-Carrier Satellite Gateways playing a key role.
The latest Satcom transmission standard, DVB-S2X, enables Televisa to offer six HD channels and improved picture quality using a 36 MHz transponder.
"The deployment of the MCX7000s featuring the DVB-S2X standard in Televisa’s network ensures our customer is achieving the highest possible performance," said Ramon Ertze, Regional Sales Director at Newtec. "Additionally, I would like to thank our Mexican certified business partner, Siselectron, for the system integration and support it provided for this project and we look forward to the same cooperation on future opportunities."
The MXC7000 can be used for efficient distribution to towers and headends, or in back-up for dense Direct-to-Home (DTH) HUB stations, resulting in OpEx and CapEx savings. The 133 Mbaud modem is also suitable for broadcast contribution applications on standard and High Throughput Satellite (HTS) spotbeam transponders.
Up to 51% additional bandwidth can be generated by the modem, which features multistream, as well as Newtec’s Clean Channel Technology® and its linear and non-linear pre-distortion technology Equalink® 3, which is designed to compensate for the effects of imperfections in the filters and amplifiers of the satellite.
Newtec’s CEO Thomas Van den Driessche said: "As Mexico’s leading broadcaster and content provider, Televisa is an important customer and we are pleased to be playing a key part in its nationwide network. The project shows the growing popularity and relevance of the DVB-S2X standard which is available on all Newtec equipment, offering broadcasters a future-proof solution which is available today."
Newtec is participating at LatSat, the Latin America satellite communications show which will feature high-level debates on local and global market issues. To arrange a meeting with a Newtec representative, please visit: www.newtec.eu/event/latsat-2017.
