Latest technology focuses on efficiency, resilience and sustainability
Emphasizing that terrestrial transmission still has a vital role to play in broadcasting, Rohde & Schwarz will discuss the new TH1 software-defined transmitter. This provides agile support across the range of formats, including the rapidly emerging 5G Broadcast, while providing a reduction in power consumption of more than 40%, transforming the sustainability of terrestrial television. Each morning at 11.00 there will be a special presentation on TH1. This will focus on the core values of the transmitter platform which is designed with efficiency in mind. The presentation will describe how the TH1 delivers higher performance, a new flexibility across all frequencies, and lower energy consumption for improved consumer satisfaction, reduced power consumption and greatly increased sustainability. Adopting the theme “the future of broadcasting” for its Cabsat presence, Rohde & Schwarz will show how highly functional, highly efficient systems are built using standard IT industry hardware and core software, onto which specialist media applications are built. Typical of this approach is the new R&S®SpycerNode2, a radical re-architecting of the popular storage appliance, which draws on the IBM Spectrum Scale and High Performance Computing platform to create a video server with huge capacity, very high bandwidth to support large numbers of concurrent users, and zero downtime for unparalleled reliability. The stand will also focus on new functionality for R&S®Clipster 6 Mark 2 is the industry standard for creating deliverables which now sees a 100% speed boost, and R&S®Venice, the ingest to playout content store, also has powerful new functionality, including simplifying the ingest of threatened VT libraries. Rich multi-channel automated playout infrastructures can be created, on premises or in the cloud, using Pixel Power Gallium automation management and StreamMaster video processing. “The Middle East and North Africa market has always shown a keen determination to employ the most creative, efficient and dynamic technologies to support its media creativity,” said James Gilbert, Director of Product and Solution Management at Rohde & Schwarz. “We see Cabsat as the ideal opportunity to talk to all the leaders in the region, to share our thoughts on developing a sustainable future for broadcasting, and to understand the key issues that affect them, so that together as partners we can meet the challenges going forward.” Rohde & Schwarz technical and sales staff will be on hand to discuss the complete range of products on stand S1-I20 at Cabsat 2023, or go to www.rohde-schwarz.com for more information.
