Sencore, a leading provider of signal quality and video delivery solutions, today announced that its SMD 989 DVB-S/S2 modulator is being used to supply broadcast video contribution and distribution feeds for this week’s Group of 20 (G20) world economic forum scheduled for June 18-20 in Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, Mexico. The SMD 989 was supplied and installed by International Media Services Inc., which holds the contract from the Mexican government for broadcast services for the G20 Mexico Summit.
“We have worked with Sencore on several projects, so we’re well-acquainted with the superior quality and reliability that is built into every Sencore product. When it came time to source broadcast equipment for the G20 Mexico Summit, Sencore’s SMD 989 was an easy choice,” said Don Hughes, vice president, International Media Services Inc. “The SMD 989 is a reliable product that we know we can always count on. It’s extremely easy to install and bring online; you just set it once and leave it alone. And its support of advanced DVB-S2 modulation modes helps reduce transponder costs in any installation.”
The SMD 989 offers unprecedented efficiency, flexibility, and reliability for all types of satellite digital video delivery applications. The modulator's intuitive user and remote interfaces, and out-of-box support for ASI and IP inputs ensure fast set up and effortless system integration. At the G20 Mexico Summit, the SMD 989 is being used to modulate signals from NTT encoders for distribution to international broadcasters.
“The G20 Mexico Summit is a significant milestone for the SMD 989, which has been steadily gaining market share as global broadcasters and service providers recognize the system’s reliability and versatility in large-scale contribution environments,” said Jeff Briden, vice president of product management at Sencore. “We look forward to building on our partnership with International Media Services Inc. to supply signal transmission solutions for some of the world’s most high-profile, world-class media events.”
