DVB-H IP ENCAPSULATOR T6100 and S6000 Series

IP EncapsulatorDVB-H IPE enables Mobile TV broadcast services to mobile handsets with limited computing power and limited battery resources. Mobile reception (130 - 500 km) is improved by 5-9 dB thanks to MPE-FEC (forward error correction) mechanism. Over 90 % battery savings are achieved by Time Slicing. MPE FEC and Time Slicing are performed by MD DVB-H IPE. DVB-H standard incorporates IPDC concept (Internet protocol data casting) what means video and audio are transmitted via IP (UDP/RTP) layer. DVB-H can be transmitted via DVB-T transmitters. MD DVB-H IPE T6100 and S6000 Series include also new features suited for easy DVB-H Laboratory and Field Trials such as TS Recording & Play, Video Streaming etc (see details bellow).

DVB-H Specific features:

Time Slicing is a core DVB-H feature. Purpose of Time Slicing is to save mobile handsets battery life for longer operation time. DVB-H IP Encapsulator organizes transmission of DVB-H services into "time slices" enabling mobile handset to "sleep" between the bursts. In case of e.g. 10 TV channels 90% of energy savings can be achieved. During "Off-time" mobile phone can monitor other cells transmission for easy handover.
