Newtec Wins Award for Outstanding Achievement

13/11/2013

Satellite communications specialist wins ASBU BroadcastPRO Award for its pivotal role in developing new DVB-S2 extensions technology

DUBAI, UAE, and SINT-NIKLAAS, Belgium, 13 November 2013. Newtec has been awarded the prestigious accolade of Outstanding Achievement' at the ASBU BroadcastPRO Awards for the company's pivotal role developing new S2 Extensions technologies. The winners were announced on Tuesday 12 November at the ASBU Broadcast Pro Summit gala dinner in Dubai.

Newtec's positive leadership in ensuring the on-going health of the satellite communications sector impressed the judges despite it being a closely contested category. Newtec was recognized for setting a new benchmark for success through its DVB-S2 technology upgrades, which boosts the satellite link efficiency up to 20% in Direct-To-Home networks and 37% in other professional applications compared to DVB-S2 - even up to 64% with wideband.

The Newtec S2 Extensions include smaller Roll-Offs, advanced filter technologies, higher efficient MODCODs, more MODCODs fine-tuned for linear and non-linear operation, higher modulation (64APSK) and wideband (72 Mbaud). These extensions have been contributed to the new evolution of the DVB-S2 standard.

Newtec's S2 Extension technologies have already been implemented on Newtec's modulators, modems and hubs. On top of these extensions, Newtec has developed and added technologies such as Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM), bandwidth cancellation, pre-distortion, network and cross-layer optimization, all of which further increase transmission efficiency.

These gains allow more people to connect all over the world giving them better access to education, to entertainment, to (welfare) services and to economic, political and social involvement.

Newtec's CEO, Serge Van Herck, said: We are delighted to be recognized with an Outstanding Achievement award. By continuous innovation to increase efficiency of communications over satellite, and therefore lowering both CAPEX and OPEX, satellite operators, service providers and broadcasters are now able to launch new services in a profitable manner. This benefits the entire satellite ecosystem and extension end users around the world.
