The multi-purpose XC Platform addresses the broadcast distribution market with its modular high-density chassis design. It allows for an entire broadcast system to be designed specifically to meet operator’s individual needs. Our philosophy greatly reduces the cost of ownership and ensures that operators can simultaneously handle legacy challenges and evolve through the introduction of new technology.
The XC Platform proposes a width range of modules which provides all functionality required in a broadcast distribution head-end and can be customized according to market segments. There is a wide range of input modules making it the most effective content aggregation solution on the market (e.g. ASI, IP, DVB-S/S2, DVB-S/S2X, DVB-C, DVB-T/T2, ISDB-T, QAM and 8VSB). Other modules for switching, compression, statmux, processing, output and decoding are available. All modules are hot-pluggable and can be combined freely to provide the desired functionality, including the possibility to deliver and convert both analogue and digital broadcast services, from point to point, or from point to multipoint and in any format to any screen.
As a carrier grade platform, both the XC5000 (4RU) and XC5100 (1RU) feature uprated dual-redundant and hot swappable power supplies, increasing cooling and enhancing redundancy.
