Softel has a highly respected heritage in the interactive television space, and is also a world leading provider of ancillary data headend components. Softel has combined decades of know-how to provide an expanded line of key headend equipment.
While operators continue to reclaim bandwidth from hungry analog systems using in-home digital converter boxes also known as digital TV converters or DTA devices, MediaSphere™ DTA is a transport stream generator that provides a neatly packaged solution for streaming various digital TV data (such as Service Information/SI, Electronic Program Guide/EPG and Video on Demand/VOD) to these devices as is required.
Similarly, in the connected TV space, it is important to provide the signaling information that such devices rely on. So, MediaSphere Signal offers a neat solution for the emerging Connected TV space.
MediaSphere Bitmax brings a wide variety of transport stream processing capabilities to the headend, in a single product. As a framework-based solution, MediaSphere Bitmax can perform a very wide array of tasks, such as:
- Taking multiple disparate inputs and multiplexing (or “muxing”) them in to one deliverable coherent transport stream
- Re-timing and “re-stamping” operations
- Providing a complete dynamic headend signaling system.
