Rohde and Schwarz supports AsiaSat 4

Published: ASIA

ASIA: Rohde & Schwarz has partnered with Asia Satellite Telecommunications Co Ltd (AsiaSat) to support the implementation of the first free-to-air UHD channel on AsiaSat 4. The high-power coverage provided by AsiaSat 4 will reportedly enable broadcasters and pay TV platforms with an AsiaSat 4 C-band antenna from New Zealand to Pakistan and part of the Middle East to receive the UHD channel directly.

‘We are very excited to work with Rohde & Schwarz in this new and evolving technology that will drive the future consumer viewing experience of video content,’ stated Sabrina Cubbon, vice president of marketing and global accounts. ‘Rohde & Schwarz has shown exemplary commitment to quality and support in helping us through the evaluation phase. We look forward to launching our first UHD channel and promoting this new technology together.’

AsiaSat has implemented the manufacturer’s Clipster mastering station for editing, handling and playing out UHD data in real time. Furthermore, the manufacturer’s AVHE100 headend will be used for live encoding with 10-bit colour depth.

‘Rohde & Schwarz is the leading supplier for digital TV transmission networks in Asia and the world,’ said Heino Gregorek, vice president for sales and marketing, Asia Middle. ‘We are happy to support AsiaSat in establishing their first UHD channel and look forward to a very successful implementation.’
