California Microwave Announces SMPTE 310M Interface Option for the EFData SDM-2020 Satellite Modem.SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 19, 1999--
California Microwave, Inc. (Nasdaq/NMS:CMIC CMIC CPU Management Interface Controller
CMIC Caucasus Media Investigations Center (Baku, Azerbaijan)
CMIC Combined Military Interrogation Center (Vietnam)
CMIC Configuration Management Information Center ) announced today a major expansion of its EFData SDM-2020 satellite modem product line to include the new SMPTE (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers, White Plains, NY, www.smpte.org) A professional society for motion picture and TV engineers with more than 9,000 members worldwide. It prepares standards and documentation for TV production. 310M interface.
Developed as a recognized standard by the Society of Motion Pictures and Television Engineers (SMPTE), the SMPTE 310M interface is a preferred electrical connection standard for delivering the Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC (Advanced Television Systems Committee) An international digital television (DTV) standard adopted by the U.S., Canada, South Korea, Taiwan and Argentina. ) digital video transport streams at 19.39 Mbps.
The EFData SDM-2020 modem has been adopted by two major US television broadcast networks for their new digital program delivery. With the addition of the SMPTE 310M interface, the EFData SDM-2020 Modulator and SDM-2020 Demodulator See demodulate.
A device used to recover the original modulating signal from a modulated wave. A demodulator is also known as a detector. now will connect directly to industry standard ATSC encoders, multiplexers and switches as well as to fiber and microwave radio modulators and broadcast transmitters.
California Microwave is featuring the new EFData SDM-2020 at the Las Vegas Convention Center The Las Vegas Convention Center is owned and operated by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and is located in Clark County, Nevada. It is one of the largest Convention centers in the world. At the end of 2004, the center had 3. , Booth No. L21142, during the National Association of Broadcasters' Convention, April 19-22, 1999.
Interface Slides into Modem, No Disassembly Required
Like other connection options for the SDM-2020, the SMPTE 310M interface simply slides into the rear of the modem, eliminating chassis disassembly and removal of the modem from the rack. The SMPTE 310 Interface also operates with the SDM-2020 in either standard QPSK (Quadrature Phase Shift Keying) A phase modulation technique that transmits two bits in four modulation states. See PSK and phase modulation. or optional 8PSK (1) See preshared keys.
(2) (Phase Shift Keying) A simple digital modulation technique that uses two different phase angles for 0 and 1. Quadrature PSK (QPSK) uses four phase shifts for each two bits of input. See phase modulation and DPSK. modes; both are ATSC and Digital Video Broadcast (DVB (Digital Video Broadcasting) An international digital television (DTV) standard that is the European and Far Eastern counterpart of the North American ATSC standard. ) compliant. The SMPTE 310M interface can be ordered initially with the SDM-2020, or later as a spare for field swap out.
California Microwave is taking orders for the SDM-2020 modulators and demodulators with typical deliveries 30 days after receipt of order.
