DVB-S2X Is Only a Software Upgrade Away

Technology note

Newtec’s professional series of broadcast satellite modulators, demodulators, modems, OEM boards and hubs are software upgradeable to the new DVB-S2X transmission standard. DVB-S2X reaches efficiency gains over DVB-S2 of up to 51% for high speed professional applications and up to 20% for Direct-to-Home (DTH) applications.

This is much needed as the growing consumption of video and data, and the ever growing consumer demand for higher quality video such as HD and (4K) UHDTV, continue to squeeze bandwidth. Satellite operators and broadcasters using Newtec's equipment cut costs or deliver more and higher quality content within the same capacity.
