Triveni Digital Celebrates 20 Years at NAB

At the 2017 NAB Show, Triveni Digital will celebrate its 20-year anniversary. Key Highlights at 2017 NAB Show will include:

ATSC 3.0 Starter Kit

At the 2017 NAB Show, Triveni Digital will introduce a series of ATSC 3.0 starter kits designed to bring broadcasters up to speed with the new broadcast television standard in a real-world environment.

The starter kits encompass everything from file-based monitoring to live encoding and over-the-air transmission, leveraging Triveni Digital’s GuideBuilder XM signalling and announcement generator and StreamScope XM MT quality assurance system for ATSC 1.0/ATSC 3.0, along with third-party technology from trusted ecosystem partners.

Triveni Digital will integrate the starter kits into broadcasters’ facilities to ensure a smooth ATSC 3.0 deployment and testing process.

ATSC 3.0 Product Enhancements

New SkyScraper XM ATSC 3.0 Datacasting System
A key highlight at the 2017 NAB Show will be Triveni Digital’s SkyScraper XM datacasting system for hybrid content distribution. SkyScraper XM enables the delivery of content over heterogeneous (i.e., broadcast and broadband) infrastructure, supporting leased bandwidth for CDNs and numerous vertical applications. During the show, Triveni Digital will demonstrate NRT delivery capabilities for SkyScraper XM, which will enable broadcasters operating in the ATSC 3.0 era to deliver data and applications via broadband or broadcast, including:

  • sVoD and free-per-view models for premium content distribution and viewing.
  • Efficient distribution of digital content to consumers (e.g., video magazines and enhanced digital newspapers).
  • Car information systems.
  • Digital signage distribution network.
  • Education content distribution.

GuideBuilder XM ATSC 3.0 Signaling and Announcement Generator

An enhanced version of Triveni Digital’s GuideBuilder XM signaling and announcement generator with support for ATSC 3.0 MMTP and ROUTE encoding protocols will be on display at the 2017 NAB Show.

The GuideBuilder XM offers unified functionality per ATSC 3.0 candidate standard, along with support for legacy standards such as ATSC 1.0 PSIP and DVB-SI, expanding upon Triveni Digital’s market-leading GuideBuilder metadata platform and providing support for the widest range of third-party interfaces and deployment architectures available. Using GuideBuilder XM, broadcasters can automatically ingest schedule updates from all popular listing services, apply them to any number of services, and output program and service guide data to third-party multiplexers. In addition, broadcasters can manage metadata across multiple stations while maintaining a seamless workflow during the transition to ATSC 3.0. Using the system for channel sharing, broadcasters can unify the generation and management of metadata via centralised, distributed, or cloud workflows. By allowing broadcasters to deliver advanced electronic programming/service guides (EPGs/ESGs) and localised emergency alerts in the ATSC 3.0 era, GuideBuilder XM improves the television viewing experience.

StreamScope XM MT Monitoring and Analysis System Supports ROUTE and MMTP

Triveni Digital will also demonstrate StreamScope XM MT. Using StreamScope XM MT, broadcasters can perform detailed analysis of ATSC 3.0 streams and data structures. By enabling broadcasters to analyse ATSC 3.0 services, and quickly detect, isolate, and resolve issues, StreamScope XM MT makes it practical for broadcasters to launch early deployments and trials of ATSC 3.0.

StreamScope XM RF Monitoring System

Triveni Digital’s StreamScope XM RF is capable of monitoring all major digital broadcasting standards including proprietary modulation schemes (e.g., ATSC 3.0 and ATSC 1.0). The system provides broadcasters with the ideal solution for monitoring digital transmitter system performance. Using the StreamScope XM RF in conjunction with Triveni Digital’s award-winning StreamScope XM MT quality assurance and StreamScope EM-50 enterprise manager systems, broadcasters can proactively detect, isolate, and resolve problems that degrade broadcast services across any transmission layer, including RF, MPEG, and IP, in ATSC 1.0 and ATSC 3.0 architectures.
