HDTVASIA firmly believes that satellite private networks will play a growing and indispensable role in meeting the increasing demands for multimedia services and electronic connectivity around the world. The rapid globalization of the telecommunications industry and the exponential growth of the Internet are placing severe demands on global telecommunications network capabilities. This demand is further increased by the convergence of computing and communications and by the increasing new applications such as Web casting, desktop and video conferencing. Satisfying customer network requirements is one of the industries greatest challenges. With its advanced satellite communication networks, HDTVASIA Network Teleports is poised to be an integral part of the newly emerging national and global information infrastructures. Satellite communication offers a number of advantages over traditional terrestrial point-to-point Networks. These include:
1.Wide geographic coverage including interconnection of remote terrestrial networks.
2. Bandwidth on demand, or Demand Assignment Multiple Access (DAMA) capabilities.
3.An alternative to damaged fiber-optic networks for disaster Recovery options.
4. Multipoint to multipoint communications facilitated, in many cases, by interoperability with the Internet.
5. Network Quality Broadcast Video.
Satellite HDTVASIA Network offers universal connectivity to domestic and international Transmission markets, while retaining the key HDTVASIA Teleports Network benefits that are so crucial in today’s Competitive Economic Environment.
HDTVASIA Telecommunications offers direct-to-home satellite TV and radio
North America, Central America and the Caribbean via satellite. The service is available to home viewers at no cost and requires only an inexpensive satellite antenna and receiver in order to watch or listen to free over the air broadcasts. Fiber and internet connectivity to European, Middle Eastern and Asian gateways allows HDTV distribute programming worldwide.
Broadcasters wishing to establish a satellite TV channel must first purchase capacity on one of our transponders which are basically satellite television channels that are subdivided into unique frequencies. Order is based upon Megabits bandwidth (Mbps) and generally, 4 to 6 Mhz up equates to better picture quality. A typical, standard definition channel has an average bandwidth of between 4.0 Mbps and 6.0 Mbps.
After determining the total satellite bandwidth required, the broadcast signal must then be delivered from the television studio to HDTVASIA teleport in order to be transmitted to the satellite. This type of signal delivery is known as “backhaul” and is usually accomplished through either fiber or internet connections. Generally, fiber has been the preferred method for broadcasters needing reliable, 24x7service but delivery of live, real-time signals via internet and HD MPEG4 compression is becoming an accepted practice as technology improves. Customers are responsible for all costs associated with establishing the backhaul connection but HDTVASIA Telecommunications work with you to determine the most cost-effective solution for your needs
The next step in the transmission line up requires encoding the broadcast signal. The encoding process takes the audio and video broadcast signal and compresses it into an MPEG2/4 file format that is necessary in order to deliver a backhaul signal regardless of whether fiber or internet connections are used.New client or TV station satellite channel will require responsibility of ordering or leasing from HDTVASIA Corp. of both an Encoder to send the signal from the broadcast facility and a Decoder to receive the signal at the Teleport.HDTV staff is always ready to assist with equipment recommendations and technical support to Make the Encoding process as faster as possible.
With the backhaul connection in place and the Encoding process complete, the broadcast signal is then ready to be transmitted or “uplinked” from HDTV Teleport’s Earth station to the satellite. All HDTVASIA Telecommunications’s uplinks are Delivered at Constant Bit Rate as compared to many other satellite operators offering only Variable Bit Rate.Simply put, Constant Bit Rate produces constant output Data to the satellite with no variance in bit rate allocation resulting in optimum picture quality.To maintain quality, the program is monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from our Technical Operations Center.
