Around the world, television stations are making – or have already made – the transition to all-digital terrestrial transmission, often racing tight deadlines imposed by regulators. But inevitably, the analog-to-digital transition is incomplete. In the race to digital transmission, most stations have chosen to convert their transmission gear to provide digital broadcasting but left the rest of their plant in analog mode. The result is another set of conversions that degrade signal quality, increase complexity and raise costs.
With years of experience in the analog-to-digital conversion, Globecomm assists stations and station groups to retrofit analog plant to IP-based digital systems with lower cost-of-ownership and simplified operation and maintenance. Robust, field-proven systems ingest digital and analog input from any source, convert it once to IP-based digital format, and manage it through the broadcast chain to the terrestrial transmitter.
