TeamCast, a specialist in digital modulation technologies for DTT Wireless Transmission and Satellite Applications, and COMPU-CONSULT, an expert in network monitoring solutions, announce they have had a long collaboration for supplying nationwide DTV monitoring solutions to the National Media and Infocommunications Authority (NMHH) in Hungary.
The work on transition from Analogue to Digital Terrestrial TV in Hungary started in 2011 and was completed by 2014. By that time, nationwide DTTV network was using the DVB-T system. After a rigorous evaluation process, the National Media and Infocommunications Authority selected TeamCast’s RXH DVB-T professional demodulators and COMPU-CONSULT’s TELE-OPERATOR UTS v.16 monitoring racks to build the first DTV monitoring network in Hungary.
Now Hungary is preparing the transition from DVB-T to DVB-T2 (to happen around 2018-2019) and is upgrading its monitoring system. The National Media and Infocommunications Authority again selected TeamCast’s RQX DVB-T2 demodulators and COMPU-CONSULT’s TELE-OPERATOR UTS v.16 DVB-T/T2 monitoring racks to build a future-proof system.
RXH and RQX demodulators were selected because they offer an accurate and reliable monitoring of the Radio Frequency signal characteristics, even when the receiving conditions go out of the nominal range. Furthermore they offer the requested software control flexibility for integration in a global system and deliver the Transport Stream content needed for monitoring or logging.
COMPU-CONSULT was selected for its long term expertise in building QoS and QoE monitoring instruments (IP and telecommunications) and its ability to design a customized system relying on TeamCast’s probes.
“We are pleased of this long and successful partnership with COMPU-CONSULT, first in DVB-T and now in DVB-T2” says Eric Pinson, Business Unit and Sales Manager at TeamCast. “The selection process by the final customer was very rigorous and we are proud to be selected, thanks to the unique characteristics of our monitoring demodulators” he adds.
“TeamCast brought to us the right technology, with the level of performance and reliability that the customer was expecting and the right level of technical support we needed to do the integration” says dr. Zoltán Darabos, CEO of COMPU-CONSULT.
