Triveni Digital Commits To ATSC 1.0 And 3.0 Support

The transition to ATSC 3.0 is underway and simulcasting the incompatible 1.0 and 3.0 formats will be a requirement for broadcasters to migrate to NEXTGEN TV without shedding viewers.

Triveni Digital recently announced its “Full-fledged support for ATSC 1.0 and ATSC 3.0.” Offering operationally efficient, cost-effective solutions for channel sharing, repack, and dual-standards broadcasting, Triveni Digital is leading the charge for better TV.

Triveni Digital's solutions are designed to help broadcasters to simultaneously deliver ATSC 1.0 and ATSC 3.0 services with a coherent architecture. The company is empowering its customers to deliver innovative service guides, addressable content delivery, interactive program enhancements, and data broadcast applications.

New SaaS Solution For Streaming ATSC 3.0 From The Cloud

Triveni Digital announced a new solution for streaming ATSC 3.0 from the cloud. Using Triveni Digital's software-based ATSC 3.0 Broadcast Gateway scheduler, GuideBuilder XM ATSC 3.0 Transport Encoder, and integration with third-party systems, broadcasters can now launch NEXTGEN TV services faster and more efficiently than ever.

The solution is available with a software-as-a-service (SaaS) business model, lowering the cost to market for new channels and services by eliminating capex costs. The solution includes support for the Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) protocol to ensure a secure broadcast communications path in the cloud.

Dual-Standards Broadcasting

Triveni Digital recently introduced a new StreamScope Enterprise platform. With it, broadcasters can manage a collection of quality assurance elements, view overall system status, and launch problem solving sessions for specific faults detected.

StreamScope Enterprise can connect to StreamScope XM for ATSC 3.0 broadcast streams and StreamScope MT-60 Analyzer for ATSC 1.0 input analysis. From the same dashboard, broadcasters can view status of the ATSC 1.0 and ATSC 3.0 services in real time. Custom dashboards are available to simplify the transition to NEXTGEN TV.

The company also introduced a new modular, software-based architecture for the entire StreamScope product family. With the modular approach, broadcasters can purchase core Analyzer, Monitor, or Dashboard functions, all available on the same base hardware platform and easily add capabilities in the future via software upgrades. It's a simple way to operate and maintain the StreamScope family of applications.

New StreamScope XM Analyzer

The next generation of Triveni Digital's StreamScope XM Analyzer software application for receiving, verifying, and recording ATSC 3.0 broadcast streams has also been upgraded. This upgraded analyzer accepts inputs via ROUTE, MMTP, SLTP protocols, or ATSC 3.0 OFDM. The latest version 1.2 of the StreamScope XM Analyzer for ATSC 3.0 features rules-based monitoring, enterprise integration, advanced transcoding functionality, and a user-friendly dashboard that speeds up quality-assurance operations in the NEXTGEN TV environment. The analyzer is available as a combo unit, with Triveni Digital's popular StreamScope MPEG analyzer loaded on the same hardware platform, creating the ultimate troubleshooting device for the era of dual-standards broadcasting.

SkyScraper XM ATSC 3.0 Datacasting System

Triveni Digital has also introduced its SkyScraper XM content distribution system for ATSC 3.0. Leveraging years of experience supporting sophisticated content distribution applications over ATSC 1.0, Triveni Digital has created the new SkyScraper XM. The solution supports professional content distribution and Non Real Time (NRT) distribution applications over ATSC 3.0, with optimized data delivery features over hybrid over-the-air and broadband delivery systems. Using SkyScraper XM, broadcasters can now perform optimized NRT delivery and support optimized private datacasting applications.

DMA Licensing

Triveni Digital’s Transition Market DMA licensing model for ATSC 3.0 is designed to make the migration to NextGen TV as smooth as possible. When broadcasters purchase Triveni Digital ATSC 3.0 solutions, they also get free licenses for corresponding ATSC 1.0 systems, including the right to reconfigure license instances at will.
