2wcom’s FlexDSR02+ Powers Satellite Distribution for Algerian National Radio
Télédiffusion d’Algérie (TDA) has placed a second order for 2wcom’s FlexDSR technology to extend its new infrastructure for audio distribution via satellite.
Providing improved coverage for Algeria’s widely-dispersed audience the new distribution structure will use 2wcom FlexDSR02+ units to achieve high quality transmission with efficient bandwidth consumption.
2wcom’s FlexDSR02+ and FlexDSR04+ digital satellite receivers offer an exceptionally comprehensive feature set, with support for all major audio formats, automatic program switching, full regionalization capabilities, SIRC remote control through satellite, fail-safe dedicated hardware, and many more functions that allow broadcasters greater operational flexibility and cost savings.
FlexDSR02+/04+ accepts input from satellite (DVB-S/S2), internet (IP), and synchronous transmission lines (STL with ASI). SD card-based internal memory capacity facilitates additional backup solutions and transmission scenarios. Automatic weight balancing of quality parameters and failover switching to alternative input sources (satellite, IP-line, ASI, SD card) is complemented by seamless audio fading between sources and optional μs-accurate synchronization for FM SFN networks from each of these input sources.
“Together with other recently-announced national and trans-national infrastructure projects, this contract represents another big confirmation that FlexDSR+ product range is now the technology of choice for audio distribution via satellite,” said Werner Drews, managing director of 2wcom.
