LYNX Technik & Stream Engineering Co-Develop Teletext APP

New Teletext Viewer APP is designed specifically for the LYNX greenMachine platform.

LYNX Technik, a provider of modular interfaces for broadcast and professional AV signal processing applications, announced teaming up with Stream Engineering to launch a Teletext Viewer APP for its greenMachine platform. Visitors to LYNX Technik’s IBC stand saw a demonstration of the new APP.

Launched with teletext standards for Europe and Australia, the new Teletext Viewer APP provides broadcasters with a tool to remotely monitor any page or sub-page of teletext data contained within a video stream. It also provides features to control real-time data such as subtitles.

This Teletext solution will enable broadcasters to handle transmission and monitoring of World System Teletext (WST), the standard for teletext throughout Europe, S2031 WST for DVB/SCTE VBI data and OP-47 subtitles for Free TV in Australia. The APP supports teletext up to Level 1.5.

The APP was designed by J. Albrecht of Stream Engineering. Additional APPs are under development between LYNX Technik and Stream Engineering, including a metadata handling APP.
