IZT to present latest broadcast equipment at IBC 2016

August 22, 2016 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
IZT GmbH will showcase its latest equipment for broadcast, including the DAB/DRM ContentServer and high-performance test and measurement products, including the S1000 signal generator with expanded DVB-T/DAB support

The company will show a cost-effective system to test digital TV receivers for DVB-T, DVB-T2, ISDB-T, based on its S1000 signal generator. In addition,  the efficient testing of DAB receivers using the S1000 and the EDI/ETI interface will be demonstrated. The S1000 signal generator platform combines 31 virtual signal generators into one compact, flexible RF test source. It is a popular test equipment for the development and verification of receiving devices and is for example fully supported in HD radio and XM type approval setups.

The R3000 receiver family allows engineers to analyze and demodulate analog and digital wideband signals. At IBC, IZT will showcase the digital wideband receiver R3301, as the preferred means for recording RF signals in the field. Four Terabytes of storage space can record up to 20.5 MHz bandwidth over twelve hours with 16 Bit resolution. In particular, IZT will demonstrate DAB/DAB+ demodulation and analysis on the R3301.

The IZT SignalSuite CSM, a Communication Satellite Monitoring system, enables automatic carrier detection, carrier and interferer analysis of all typical satellite carriers including GSM and other TDMA standards.

For an instantaneous bandwidth of 120 MHz and frequency/time-selective recording of up to 18 GHz, the immensely powerful IZT R4000 is available.

The IZT DAB ContentServer provides professional multiplexer systems for digital radio networks. It combines audio encoding, data service management and multiplex generation for Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) - including DAB Classic, DAB+ and DMB. As part of its portfolio for digital radio, IZT also offers the DRM ContentServer, a multiplexer system for short and medium wave digital radio.

A further option is the DAB ContentServer Embedded Edition to provide an entry-level system for DAB receiver testing. It is directly available on the S1000 signal generator Memory Extension. Consequently, it becomes even easier to generate DAB test sequences and to test DAB receivers in real-time with the S1000.
