Newtec Supplies Cutting Edge DVB-S2 Technology for NTT Electronics IRD World First

(PresseBox) (St-Niklaas, ) Newtec announced today that it has been selected by NTT Electronics to be the DVB-S2 technology partner for the development of the new HVD6100 IRD - the world's first professional IRD (Integrated Receiver Decoder) to combine decoder functionality, with a DVB-S2 demodulator and AVC/H.264 4:2:2 HDTV support. The project is using the Newtec NTC/7044 high end DVB-S2 demodulator board.

The NTC/7044 demodulator board from Newtec was chosen for the project as it is able to process data rates up to 155 Mbit/s and operate in 16 APSK and 32 APSK high-order demodulation schemes. It has also been specifically designed for the type of contribution and distribution applications that the HVD6100 IRD will provide to satellite, broadcast and telecoms operators.

Mr. Koichi Masaki, General Manager of the Multimedia Systems Division at NTT Electronics, said: "We are extremely proud of the breakthroughs we have made during the development of the HVD6100 IRD, and we greatly appreciate the fast response and dedicated support we have received from Newtec. The company is recognised as an industry leader in the development of DVB-S2 technology, and their NTC/7044 demodulator board met all of our requirements, performing to a consistently high standard."

Max d'Oreye, VP Professional Equipment of Newtec said: "NTT Electronics is a leader in the broadcasting market and we are delighted to be working with them on this project. The extended capabilities of our DVB-S2 demodulator boards fit perfectly with the very high performance IRD product of NTT Electronics and we look forward to seeing the HVD6100 being used by broadcasters in the very near future."
