Newtec to supply DVB-S2 technology for NTT Electronics
Newtec announced tlast week that it has been selected by NTT Electronics to be the DVB-S2 technology partner for the development of the new HVD6100 IRD - the world’s first professional IRD (Integrated Receiver Decoder) to combine decoder functionality, with a DVB-S2 demodulator and AVC/H.264 4:2:2 HDTV support. The project is using the Newtec NTC/7044 high end DVB-S2 demodulator board.
The NTC/7044 demodulator board from Newtec was chosen for the project as it is able to process data rates up to 155 Mbit/s and operate in 16 APSK and 32 APSK high-order demodulation schemes. It has also been specifically designed for the type of contribution and distribution applications that the HVD6100 IRD will provide to satellite, broadcast and telecoms operators.
