Newtec's Multistream Technology Selected by Flo TV for Mobile TV Distribution network IRD upgrade

(PresseBox) ( Berlin, )
Newtec announced today that FLO TV(TM) Incorporated (, a wholly owned subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, has selected Newtec's Multistream technology and products for an IRD upgrade of its Mobile TV content distribution network. Newtec is the main supplier for Multistream Satellite Receivers to be installed in all terrestrial UHF transmitter towers.

Newtec has begun delivery of the Multistream Satellite Receivers with multiple ASI and GbE interfaces. The GbE interface provides true IP connectivity to the transmitter sites for future applications, such as the distribution of IP services and IP networking applications. Next to robust coding and modulation, the receiver offers the operator the flexibility to match the QoS to the type of content being delivered through the VCM (Variable Coding and Modulation) functionality.

Newtec is the first in the market to fully implement Multistream technology into its product range, and has a proven track record through multiple deployments worldwide. Multistream, a concept introduced by the DVB-S2 standard, allows broadcasters to aggregate (combine) a number of ASI transport streams and/or IP streams into one satellite carrier. Unlike a traditional DVB multiplexer, this new technology does not modify the original transport streams, maintaining the integrity of the original content. This makes Newtec's Multistream implementation particularly suited for Mobile TV networks in Single Frequency Network (SFN) mode. The system provides broadcasters with a fully transparent and efficient way to carry the content over satellite towards the transmitter towers.

Newtec receivers provide true VCM multi-streaming capability coupled with high performance and solid, ready-to-deploy reliability. The flexibility offered by the receiver allows carriers such as FLO TV to fully optimize their data rate, antenna size and link availability on a per stream basis.

Serge van Herck, CEO of Newtec Cy, said: "Newtec is pleased that FLO TV selected the Newtec Multistream Satellite Receivers for their network. It confirms our product's high performance capabilities in mobile TV content distribution networks, where quality and reliability are critical.".

Newtec's new products and technologies will be demonstrated at IBC2009 (, 11th until 15th of September in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. For more information visit the following link:
