Satisfying robust timing and synchronization needs demanded by digital broadcasting
Digital video is coming. Will broadcasters be ready? Come February 2009, United States broadcasters will join their European counterparts and transition to digital broadcasting. Pervasively distributed synchronization — that is both highly precise and highly reliable — is a key operational requirement for the Digital Video Broadcast-Terrestrial (DVB-T) and Digital Video Broadcast-Handheld (DVB-H) standards. Symmetricom broadcast infrastructure solutions meet the robust timing and monitoring requirements that ensure Single Frequency Network broadcasters the highest Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE) for their high definition, IPTV and mobile broadcasts.
Symmetricom’s DVB/DAB GPS time source solutions ensure highly reliable and precise synchronization for the single frequency network.
Deployed on bus level integrated systems, Symmetricom’s time and frequency processor modules deliver precise, versatile, and dependable timing solutions.
Time Code Generators and Translators operate automatically and provide the ultimate in performance when translating time codes that are contaminated by noise and distortion. Our Time Displays provide highly visible time to remote areas and can be mounted in instrumentation racks, consoles, on ceilings/walls or desktop areas.
The atomic clock accuracy of our Network Time Protocol (NTP) time servers provide incredibly precise, reliable, and secure time synchronization to computer networks.
Ideal for measurement purposes, Symmetricom’s ultra-precise, GPS referenced IEEE 1588 Grandmaster Clocks reduce network related latency and characterizes the latency and jitter characteristics of network elements.
