VideoPropulsion expands its line of digital television (DTV) headend appliances by integrating DVB-S/S2 satellite receiver technology.

FloodGate FG-4000 Series Headend Appliance with integrated DVB-S/S2 tuners

With integrated DVB-S2 tuner frontends in our products we are now better positioned to capture additional market share for International DTV equipment

VideoPropulsion® (OTC:VPTV) announces it has added DVB-S/S2 satellite receiver technology into its line of digital television (DTV) headend turnaround appliances. The new DVB-S2 frontend option enables the reception of multiple MPEG digital television programs delivered via satellite for subsequent processing and play out on digital cable QAM or IPTV networks. The DVB-S2 frontend technology can be integrated with the company’s transcoding, transcyrpting, multiplexing, and modulating applications.

Digital Video Broadcast (DVB) is a well-established set of International standards for the delivery and reception of MPEG-based digital television programming. The company’s new DVB-S/S2 tuner frontends support both Free-To-Air (FTA) unencrypted programming as well as encrypted services that require the use of a Conditional Access Module (CAM).

Now in its 40th year of continuous operation, VideoPropulsion offers various appliance models with integrated DVB-S2 receivers. For example, the company’s flagship FloodGate® FG-4000 can now receive multiple MPEG programs via DVB-S2 satellite, decrypt the programs using the onboard CAM, re-encrypt the programs using AES-128 encryption, multiplex, then modulate output on QAM. The QAM output supports DVB-C standards for Annex A, B, or C. Outputs can also support IP multicast streams for delivery on IPTV networks. Virtually any standard AES-128 based encryption is supported, and the company supports several flavors including: Pro:Idiom®, SamsungLYNK®, Verimatrix®, VSecure®, and other custom proprietary encryptions.

“For the past decade, we have been very successful in the North American DTV equipment markets with our FloodGate® turnaround appliances”, said Carl Pick, Founder/Chairman & Chief Scientist at VideoPropulsion. "With integrated DVB-S2 tuner frontends in our products we are now better positioned to capture additional market share for International DTV equipment”.

FloodGate® appliances with integrated DVB-S/S2 satellite reception technology are available directly from VideoPropulsion.
