Enensys Technologies, a provider of media delivery solutions, has announced that the latest release of Enensys’ OneBeam solution brings it into compliance with the DVB-SIS standard. With this modification, Enensys has become the first provider capable in delivering a complete DVB-SIS system.
Enensys has a long history with the OneBeam solution; the first OneBeam system was deployed in 2012 with the aim of optimising the satellite bandwidth required to distribute video streams to terrestrial transmission sites drastically reducing the deployment costs of DTT services. Following OneBeam’s initial launch, Enensys has implemented this solution for several network broadcast operators. With each deployment, the solution has been updated, keeping ahead of market changes and needs.
Enensys’ OneBeam DVB-SIS solution allows Network Broadcast Operators to optimise their TV delivery services using a single satellite feed for DTH and DTT in a Single Frequency Network (SFN). One satellite distribution serves both DTT transmission sites and DTH consumers. At the DTT transmission site, the Enensys TxEdge OneBeam creates the DVB-T or DVB-T2 SFN bouquet based on the services carried over DTH satellite. TV viewers who cannot receive DTT signals receive the DTT services over the same DTH feed. This brings Network Broadcast Operators a step closer to attaining their goal of 100 per cent TV delivery coverage.
“The OneBeam DVB-SIS gives the Network Broadcast Operators a way to simplify and mutualize head-end equipment, as well as generate significant savings on the distribution network OPEX – allowing to deploy Digital Terrestrial services at the lower cost.” said Eric Pinson, Terrestrial Market Director. “It also offers additional applications such as regional content insertion, smooth transition from DVB-T to DVB-T2 an can be used as a backup of main distribution.”
