Topic: Next Generation Broadcast Solutions
As evidenced by Newtec’s recent industry survey, called “Next Generation Video Networks”, gathering responses from 270 participants, Broadcasters operating today face numerous challenges which include more complex workflows, introduction of new services, increased user expectations for always-on connectivity and pressure on efficiency in both the space and ground segments. All of these result in the need for one thing – OPEX savings.
Newtec Dialog is a single scalable, flexible multiservice IP based platform assisting Broadcast operators to address increasing OPEX and CAPEX challenges, while remaining agile to enable new satellite services in an ever changing world. Automatization of broadcast workflows and efficient usage of available resources (including DVB-S2X & Mx-DMA™ including HighResCoding (HRC™)) are key differentiators of the solution.
With the rapid roll-out of fiber and increasingly cheaper terrestrial services, there is an undeniable threat to the traditional satellite business model. Newtec’s solution, not only faces these challenges head on, but turns them in to opportunities by enabling workflows end-to-end over hybrid satellite/terrestrial networks.
Newtec Dialog‘s target markets are Video Contribution and Exchange, including SNG and FNG, for live or file based content; Primary Distribution and Direct-To-Home, especially towards extension of the services to triple or quadruple play.
