Madrid (22 de mayo de 2012)
SAPEC, Spanish company specialized in solutions for transmission of video and audio signals, has signed an agreement to distribute the range of products of the American company SENCORE in Spain in the last NAB2012. SENCORE is an American company with over 60 years of experience in the broadcast industry and has products and solutions for video transport, monitoring systems, signal analysis and measurement equipment. SENCORE is headquartered in Sioux Falls (South Dakota) and has 200 employees (of whom more than 75 are engineers). SENCORE video transport solutions are designed for complex environments with a variety of signals, interfaces, formats and standards and offer the highest level of quality to the operators.
Encoders-Decoders (IRD), devices that allow a wide variety of combinations of inputs and outputs: IP, DVB-S/S2, Composite Video, HD-SDI, SDI; systems of decoding MPEG-2 / H.264 SD; support of Simulcrypt decryption via its DVB-CI interface, and ability to decode up to 2 channels in 1RU. Transcoders, with processing capacity of up to 16 channels SD/HD and flexibility to perform conversions, H.264, MPEG-2, MPEG-2 to H.264, H.264-H.264 and MPEG-2 to MPEG-2. The computer has inputs and outputs IP and ASI.
Modulators, with ASI and IP inputs and outputs in L band, IF and according to the standard DVB-S/S2 modulation.
Products for monitoring SENCORE digital video systems ensure a distribution of content with the highest quality, thanks to the logs and tracking of signals. In this way it is possible to remotely identify and resolve incidents service failures occur. The SENCORE products portfolio include: equipment of portable monitoring for IP flows and/or signals 8VSB/QAM, equipment modular 1 RU chassis with capacity for three monitoring cards (one of them must be of type IP). Cards are capable of monitoring: or so (until 13 flows), or DVB-S/S2 (up to 2 inputs RF QPSK/8PSK, along with 10 flows IP and ASI input 1) or DVB-T/T2 (up to 4 RF inputs, along with 50 flows IP multicast) or 8VSB/QAM (up to 4 signals RF, along with 10 flows IP multicast and 1 ASI input) or IP (multiple flows)
The monitoring system can be controlled from a central server that controls the cards and is even able to get thumbnails and metadata of the video. On the other hand, SENCORE offers a complete range of solutions for the analysis of quality of video and MPEG, IP, RF signal error detection. This family includes platforms for MPEG/IPTV analysis and hand signals at RF equipment. Products can accept a variety of physical inputs – including ASI, QAM and Ethernet-. Finally, SENCORE has a variety of solutions for video and supplies signal for streaming video intake delayed playout, as well as equipment to generate MPEG streams, and RF test signals and patterns for calibration of video. “With this agreement SENCORE complements the range of products offered by SAPEC customers, allowing a more complete solution to their transportation needs of video,” said Miguel Angel Cristóbal, CEO of SAPEC.
