Founded in 2004, Enensys Technologies designs and manufactures innovative professional hardware and software solutions enabling efficient video delivery over broadcast and telecoms networks. The company’s Broadcast Networks division develops equipment for digital terrestrial TV, targeted content insertion and switches and IP transport. Products are designed for use in the distribution network between encoding/multiplexing and transmission, facilitating signal distribution over a wide variety of networks.
(NEW) OneBeam V2 — This system provides the ability to use a standard satellite DTH network to also distribute services to DVB-T/T2 or ISDB-T transmitter sites, saving operator costs. V2 allows customers to benefit from two important upgrades: it’s a unified version that supports both DVB-T and DVB-T2 networks; it also provides the ability to create a terrestrial mux from multiple rather than a single satellite.
The first upgrade is important for networks moving from DVB-T to T2 where there’s simulcasting using the two standards, as migration occurs from one to the other. Using OneBeam V2 allows both DVB-T and DVB-T2 terrestrial services to be created from the satellite feeds.
Operators can now also create the terrestrial mux from multiple satellites. Content can be taken from different transponders to create the terrestrial service. It’s often the case that national services are delivered from one satellite to the transmitter site and regional services from another and OneBeam V2 is designed to handle that.
(NEW) Campaign Manager for AdsEdge — AdsEdge solution, which provides targeted local content insertion in DTT and cable networks — typically ads, news, weather — has been upgraded and now includes Campaign Manager. AdsEdge is a combination of server and splicer and is placed at the edge of networks (Tx sites, cable POP) to be able to provide dedicated targeted content insertion based on geographical location. Campaign Manager is a central server application that interfaces with the automation system (receiving playlists), with the content and advertising providers (ad agencies), and with AdsEgde to ensure that the right content is received correctly and is supplied to the splicer in the correct timeframe. It makes the necessary links between all the elements in the delivery chain. It also provides complete reporting capabilities to clearly and precisely show what has been broadcast and when.
IPGuard V2 — Enensys is highlighting significant upgrades to its IPGuardV2. This is a transparent IP switch that provides complete network and equipment redundancy of any digital TV standard product and delivery network. It works across standards and formats and is vital in maintaining service. It benefits from dedicated features and switching criteria for TS (DVB-T, ATSC), BTS (ISDB-T) and T2-MI (DVB-T2).
IPGuard V2 is now using SMPTE 2022-7 to expand its capabilities beyond analysis of the video transport stream inside the overall UDP stream. It can view and check the RTP header and synchronise and switch according to that. This allows additional switching capabilities, analyzing any service that’s delivered over RTP. For example, this could be OTT or SDI-over-IP services/technology, which are likely to be the two main applications.
It is scalable from one to six modules in 1 RU with daisy chaining options and it’s capable of managing 396 IP Streams in 1RU.
