Teleport continues matrix for global

Cambridge Electronics Industries supports Belden ’ s 4K cable
Flexibility , scalability and agility are some of the key functions modern teleports are expected to deliver today . As the satellite industry continues to re-invent itself , what are the key roles that teleports can play ? Shawn Liew reports .
Cambridge Electronics Industries has introduced a series of 12G-SDI BNC connectors under the CoaxVision brand . The new connectors , said the company , will maximise the speed and performance of Belden ’ s 4794R 4K co-axial cable for applications in digital camera and 4K / UHD TV . Stephen Smith , managing director , Cambridge Electronic Industries , said : “ Our connectors are built to match the data throughput and reliability of the Belden 4794R cable , and together with the cables , they provide a single channel that will achieve the very high frame rates required for UHD and 4K video productions , over greater distances .”
AsiaSat and Globecast deliver RTR-Planeta
AsiaSat and Globecast have reached an agreement to deliver the RTR-Planeta Asia channel to viewers via the AsiaSat 5 satellite . Vladimir Zhdanov , senior legal advisor , media at RTR-Planeta , explained : “ With the sheer volume of programming we offer , we need technology partners that deliver faultless services , and there is no better choice for this project than Globecast and AsiaSat . Through our partnership with them , we can now deliver our content further across Asia , without hassle or worry .“

Slovenian teleport operator STN was built with an infrastructure that enables it to evolve and integrate new technologies . This approach allows STN to offer current and potential clients premium media solutions and added value options to enhance their services today or into the future .

Live production in the IP domain has been given another shot in the arm by Telstra ’ s launch of its Distributed Production Network ( DPN ), an end-to-end IP network custom-built for the media industry .

Trevor Boal , head of Telstra Broadcast Services , Telstra , tells APB : “ DPN enables professional media customers to produce live broadcasts from a remote venue or event by sending multiple raw camera feeds , audio , graphics , production communications and equipment control signals over our network to centralised production hubs .”
For example , Telstra ’ s DPN is providing the network capability to deliver a new outside broadcast ( OB ) model for Fox Sports by connecting 29 stadiums across regional and metro Australia to remote production hubs located in Syndey and Melbourne .
Complimenting the DPN offering is Telstra ’ s Global Media Network ( GMN ), which provides broadcasters and content creators the ability to take their content global by combining Telstra ’ s global network and infrastructure . Boal adds : “ The GMN hub is a state-of-the-art broadcast operations centre in Sydney that provides simple and efficient global delivery of live , linear and file-based video content across Telstra ’ s high-capacity submarine fibre cable network , four teleports and access to more than 40 satellites covering strategic media hubs across Asia , Europe , the US and Australia .”
He also observes how Telstra customers are now expecting fast , economical and global connectivity “ all the time ”. To meet this demand , Telstra provides uplink and downlink services through its teleports , which are connected to its global terrestrial network . “ Our teleports can support DVB formats and operate in both contribution and distribution ( directto-home ) modes ,” Boal says .
The way in which people consume content has seen a paradigm shift in recent years , observes Tomaz Lovsin , CTO of STN , a Slovenian teleport operator . “ While satellite is associated with linear broadcast , today ’ s viewers expect to be able to watch their favourite shows , movies or events whenever it suits them and not just when the programme airs . The viewer has become the final editor and is no longer bound to linear TV schedules or to traditional TV screens ,” he points out .
This goes a long way to explain why STN was built with an infrastructure that enables it to evolve and integrate new technologies . This approach , says Lovsin , allows STN to offer current and potential clients premium media solutions and added value options to enhance their services today or into the future .
He cites the example where STN is aiming to make it much simpler for its clients to take full advantage of over-the-top ’ s ( OTT ) commercial possibilities by adding it to their service portfolio . As for 4K / Ultra HD ( UHD ), STN has successfully tested and performed a live 4K / UHD transmission encoded in HEVC / H . 265 using a software-based , GPU-accelerated real-time video and audio encoding solution .
“ Although the demand for 4K / UHD has not yet materialised in the mainstream market , this may well soon change , and we are prepared for it when it happens ,” Lovsin explains .
