New DVEO Channel-in-a-Box solution is a flexible, easy to use play out server for TV, Satellite, or Cable Channel operations.
The DVEO Channel Manager ASI 4ch is a complete Channel in a Box with support for four ASI channels. It will be on display at the DVEO exhibit along with Channel Manager IP/IP 4ch, supporting four individual IP channel streams. Each is a complete system tailored for the North American Broadcast and Cable markets where sub-channels are often transmitted along with a primary channel.
Channel Manager ASI offers scheduled play out for live and stored content, channel branding, and EAS interface support for systems such as Trilithic, Sage, and Monroe Digital Alert Systems. It also supports SCTE 35 based ad insertion, interfaces to most traffic systems and provides “As Run” reports. It is ready to feed your favorite TS mux which inserts PSIP information and grooms your programs for 19.38 Mbps. The device can also be used as an ad inserter.

The CRC (cyclic redundancy check) was primarily an error detector, but it did allow some early error correction systems to be implemented. There are many different CRCs but they all work in much the same way, which is that the…
The mathematics of finite fields and sequences seems to be a long way from everyday life, but it happens in the background every time we use a computer and without it, an explanation of modern error correction cannot be given.
Here we look at one of the first practical error-correcting codes to find wide usage. Richard Hamming worked with early computers and became frustrated when errors made them crash. The rest is history.
Error correction is fascinating not least because it involves concepts that are not much used elsewhere, along with some idiomatic terminology that needs careful definition.
Errors are handled in real channels by a combination of techniques and it is the overall result that matters. This means that different media and channels can have completely different approaches to the problem, yet still deliver reliable data.
