LOW COST PROFESSIONAL DVB HEADEND
The XDS-Headend DVB system is designed to enable networks to
provide enhanced capability without a large investment in hardware. The XDS-Headend has standard interfaces to support integration with third party equipment such as encoders and satellite modulators.
The XDS-Headend supports live channels for broadcast media. Live streams can be added in two ways. The XDS Encoder module can be inserted into the same VME chassis as the XDS-MUX module allowing direct multiplexing via VME backplane. A second option is to use a third party audio encoder with an ASI interface.
COPY SPLIT – SPOT INSERTION
This feature allows regionalized and localized ad campaigns. Specific advertising spots can be sent to regions or specific receivers. Audio files stored in the receiver can be inserted into live or recorded
The XDS-PRO receiver is capable of recording and playing back any broadcast channel. This enables the network/station to time shift content to the proper air-time. Content can be recorded into its local or networked storage.
STORE & FORWARD AND FILE DELIVERY
The XDS-Headend seamlessly interfaces to the XDS-Courier store and forward sub-system. Media files can be transmitted to clients via
satellite or internet links.
The XDS-MUX module is programmable to output virtual channels as a “live assist” device. The play list includes media and channel format specifications. This permits the network operation to automatically schedule content to air at a specific time or on a specific event.
Each XDS-PRO receiver is uniquely addressable via physical ID, Logical ID and Group ID which allows for maximum flexibility in configuring a network.
