Successful Carrier ID management interoperability test

Experts in digital modulation technologies for Digital Terrestrial Television TeamCast, and Rohde & Schwarz have successfully completed a DVB-CID interoperability test session between the DVB-CID generator embedded in the R&S BTC Broadcast Test Center and the TeamCast DVB-CID Receiver.

As for every new standard introduced on the market, different interpretations of the mathematical specification can be made. As no interoperability test session was organised so far by the DVB group, the two companies decided to run such tests on their own.

“So far, we made several interoperability test sessions with different modulator manufacturers and different satellite monitoring equipment providers with a full success. However as the R&S BTC is one of the first reference test tool on the market, it was important for us to organize this test session. Now we can claim that TeamCast’s satellite transmission products (the VYPER Modulator and the DVB-CID Receiver Demodulator) are fully compliant with the ETSI 103 129 DVB-CID standard”, says Philippe Hostiou, Satellite Product Line Manager at TeamCast.

As a leading supplier of broadcast T&M solutions, Rohde & Schwarz attaches great importance to the quality of its products and therefore strives to perform interoperability tests together with its customers, partners and industry. “The R&S BTC Broadcast Test Center provides latest transmission standards like DVB-S2X and performs transmission simulations for terrestrial, cable and satellite applications in addition. This includes testing capabilities for DVB-CID in combination with DVB-S/S2 and DSNG,“ says Ralph Kirchhoff, Product Manager Broadcast Signal Generators at Rohde & Schwarz.
