Germany-based technology provider WISI (Stand E9) will use ANGA Cable to showcase two extended headend systems, Chameleon and Tangram, and the multiscreen content management system AiMS.
WISI has also expanded the product portfolio of its optical access platform Optopus, its compact headend system OH and will show a number of new amplifiers.
The Chameleon headend system can be used in linear TV distribution networks or in multiscreen applications. Utilising a single hardware, all Chameleon modules are configured and programmed by software only. At ANGA Cable WISI is extending Chameleon by a new encoder module. Among others available software modules for Chameleon are all DVB tuners, DVB and analogue modulators for different outputs, transmodulators, descrambling, MPEG-4 decoder, IP- and ASI streamer as well as re-multiplexer.
With the ongoing digitisation of networks more and more video signals are transported via IP. To feed these IP encapsulated video signals into analogue access networks like RF overlay or HFC, they need to be converted in QAM, COFDM, PAL and FM. WISI’s Tangram is a high density platform for these edge applications (Edge QAM, Edge-COFDM, Edge Pal and Edge FM). The system offers redundant power supplies, 1+1 and n+1 redundancy, SNMP management, replacement of modules and fans in operation.
Together with technology partner IP.Netcom, WISI will show its AiMS Multi Screen Content Management Solution to present services in the correct layout and corresponding resolution on flat screens, PCs, smartphones, tablets and set-tops with the highest possible bandwidth. WISI also shows its optical access platform Optopus and the LX9x series of compact nodes, as well as its extended OH compact headend system and new amplifiers.
