DTC Broadcast sells 16 4K transmitters to CCTV

DTC Broadcast's Aeon TX 4K transmitter

The Chinese broadcaster CCTV, through its Hong-Kong partner Ideal Systems, has decided to buy 16 complete AEON-TX 4K transmitters, PRORXD-AEON receivers, antennas and ancillaries from DTC Broadcast.

The AEON 4K encoder makes efficient use of the HEVC algorithm. It’s capable of taking a 12G signal and compresses it to a bitrate that can be managed over an RF link. Additionally, they enable 32 megabits of data to be sent over a 16-QAM channel, ensuring the picture quality of the transmission. According to DTC Broadcast, they will be used in high profile events.

DTC Regional Sales Manager- APAC, Gareth James, talks about the agreement: “This landmark sale is a major entrée into this vast market, and what better way to enter than with the AEON-TX. It further illustrates the value of having a strong partner in the region, and we’re proud to partner with Ideal Systems.”

Ideal systems will deliver the first devices on behalf of CCTV during the second quarter of 2019.
