Bridge Technologies has launched its new VB252 RF interface, a complete RF monitoring and analysis solution for DVB-T/T2 broadcasters.
With its extensive RF capabilities, ETR290 analysis via the VB120 and VB220 probes, and comprehensive support for DVB-T, DVB-T2, and DVB-T2 MI protocols, the VB252 solution is the only product on the market to offer everything the DVB-T broadcaster needs in one compact chassis.
The Bridge Technologies modular design allows mixing of inputs to suit a variety of network configurations. Where satellite distribution to transmission sites is combined with IP distribution, DVB-T and DVB-T2 monitoring can be coupled with satellite monitoring in the same chassis using a VB270 module. High-density ASI monitoring can be combined with DVB-T/T2 monitoring by adding a VB242 module to the chassis. The combination of the VB252 with VideoBRIDGE probes such as the VB120 or VB220 lets broadcasters easily monitor the entire signal chain end-to-end, with the VB220/VB252 pairing capable of monitoring up to 260 IP multicasts for complete analysis of the IP network as well as the DVB-T/T2 transmissions.
The VB220/VB252 combination is also the industry's first monitoring tool to offer full support for DVB-T2 MI protocol with full analysis, and has been designed to provide powerful capabilities in a convenient, easy-to-deploy package. The package will be invaluable to broadcasters as they develop new DVB-T and DVB-T2 infrastructure against a backdrop of greater competition, reduced staffing levels, and deskilling.
