AMT ENGenesis Leverages LTE for Broadcast IP Network Communications

Accelerated Media Technologies (AMT) showcased its ENGenesis bi-directional 2/7GHz BAS band communications solution at NAB New York.

Based on industry standard Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology, ENGenesis incorporates innovative IP architecture to enable high-bandwidth IP bi-directional connectivity of A/V streams, VoIP and Internet traffic with up to 50% greater sensitivity even at low levels in areas with obstructions such as heavy tree coverage.

ENGenesis recently received FCC part 74 type acceptance after extensive field trials and deployments providing documented proof of performance.

AMT’s ENGenesis 2/7GHz BAS band communications solution utilizes a single high-capacity radio channel to support simultaneous bi-directional IP based video/audio/data communications, thus providing broadcast stations with high capacity private networks. The unique bi-directional communications solution enables full remote control of IP devices in the field from a centralized studio. ENGenesis’ innovative LTE Dynamic Bandwidth Allocation also provides improved support for multiple field units with myriad performance benefits while eliminating cellular airtime costs.

With greater than 36dB front end gain versus conventional DVB-T systems (a 50% increase in sensitivity), ENGenesis delivers superior image quality with a transmission range of up to 80 kilometers using simple, small-footprint antennas that do not require elevating masts on vehicles or directional antenna adjustments on towers or buildings. Exceptional Quality of Service (QoS) allows broadcasters to set user and application data priorities to control traffic by field unit, by application within a field unit, or both.
