CCW 2010: Adtec Digital Rolls Out Three Latest Contribution Products

At the 2010 HD World show at CCW in New York, Oct. 13-14, Adtec Digital (booth 1133) will showcase its latest contribution encoder and receiver products, including the EN-80/81 DSNG contribution encoder/modulator, EN-40 DSNG encoder/modulator, and The RD-60 integrated receiver decoder.

“Our strategy is quite simple. At an amazing value, deliver a product with legendary Adtec reliability for the most demanding contribution applications,” says Kevin Ancelin, President, Adtec Digital.  “Make it easy to use, intuitive, automatic, and guarantee it works,”

The EN-80/81 DSNG contribution encoder/modulator is designed specifically for Tier 1 Satellite, ASI/Fiber and IP Contribution and DSNG applications. Adtec’s fifth generation encoder enters the market with a list of standard features and a wide range of options, allowing minimal initial investment and an upgrade path for future applications. The EN-80 series offers HD and SD, MPEG 2 and MPEG 4 AVC encoding. With temporal and spatial filtering for SD and advanced motion compensated temporal Filtering for HD, the EN-80 Series exhibits high quality video picture. Audio encoding highlights include up to eight pairs of audio encoding and advanced audio mapping capabilities. Designed for mobility and durability, the EN Series sports a new front panel design with an expanded menu system and additional key pad options. Additional methods of control and configuration are available via Adtec’s on-board web-based application and SNMP.

The EN-40 DSNG encoder/modulator supports SD MPEG 2 and MPEG 4 AVC/H.264 with 420 and 422 encoding. The EN-40 encodes both MPEG 2 and MPEG 4 AVC/H.264 video with 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 chroma sampling. It boasts four pairs of stereo audio including MPEG 1 Layer 2 and Dolby AC3 audio encoding. Passthrough support includes PCM, DolbyE/2.0/5.1 and Linear Acoustic Stream Stacker. The EN-40 supports redundant AC or DC dual-power supplies, enhanced control and monitoring via SNMP and browser. The EN-40 allows concurrent encoding and streaming to IP, ASI and L-Band. The optional Newtec DVBS/S2 modulator supports modulation from QPSK up to 32APSK.

The RD-60 integrated receiver decoder (IRD) supports MPEG 2 and MPEG 4 AVC/H.264 platforms with 420 and 422 HD and SD decoding. The RD-60 decodes both MPEG 2 and MPEG 4 AVC/H.264 video with 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 chroma sampling. It boasts four pairs of stereo audio including MPEG 1 Layer 2, Dolby AC3/5.1, HE-AAC, AAC-LC audio decoding. Passthrough support includes PCM, DolbyE/2.0/5.1and Linear Acoustic Stream Stacker. The RD-60 supports redundant AC or DC dual-power supplies, enhanced control and monitoring via SNMP and browser. Standard inputs include IP and ASI with optional dual DVBS/S2 tuner demodulator supporting Q/8PSK. An optional high end Newtec DVBS/S2 tuner demodulator supporting QPSK up to 32APSK is available.

“We are pleased that after just two years of focus on the contribution compression segment, we have delivered thousands of error free contribution feeds for the most demanding clients and events worldwide,” Ancelin says. “With our passion for products, excellence in engineering, mind for value, excellent customer service and a small army of customers supporting our development, Adtec has clearly changed the contribution compression segment globally.”
