70 years ASTRO – ANGA COM 2017

Cologne – ANGA COM 2017 took place with many news – new fair halls with more room height and natural day light. Also new, the booth from ASTRO Strobel Kommunikationssysteme. The 70 years anniversary was celebrated with a complete new booth concept. Many of the 18.000 ANGA COM visitors came to the ASTRO booth. The open, clear and bright stand-concept with a very interesting mixture of news, system-information and important trade topics as well as review on 7 decades of ASTRO history got numerous positive feedbacks. Focus was set on IP & Broadcast TV, FTTx, Hospitality-TV and DOCSIS 3.1. For the new requirements in multimedia networks, ASTRO introduced a modular, configure-as-you-grow concept for DOCSIS 3.1, 1.2 GHz multimedia amplifiers. In co-operation with Panasonic, ASTRO offers an easy to install and easy to maintain linear IPTV system, ideal for the operation in hotels, hospitals and similar networks. Also a new generation of IP streamers has been presented for the U 100 head end platform with multiplexing option. Additionally to the existing products in the Optical Transmission Portfolio, there are now dual pump optical Amplifiers (EDFAS) for highest reliability available. A new highly integrated Multiport Optical Amplifier was introduced, equipped with 64 optical ports, capable to combine 64 OLT lines with the broadcasting signal (WDM Technology). Visitors from the ASTRO booth have been strengthened with ASTRO-smoothies – as healthy source of vitamin. ASTRO cares for you.

IBC Amsterdam 2017 - new generation of IP streamers

Amsterdam – IBC 2017 took place on 15th until 19th of September with participation of 1,700 exhibitors and with more than 50,000 visitors. Main topics also in 2017 media-creation, administration and broadcasting.

On IBC, ASTRO shows a new generation of IP streamers for the U 100 head end platform with multiplexing option. The devices U 144-X / U 148-X for DVB-S2 in IP and U 164-X / U 168-X for DVB-T /-T2/-C to IP will replace the successful predecessor. In addition to the familiar features for the processing of SPTS and MPTS with RTP and FEC, the new developed frontends offer the option to multiplex four input streams to four output streams. This licensable feature allows an even more efficient alignment of MPTS. The signal density did not change with 24 transponders (FTA) and 12 transponders (with CI) per 19” rack unit.

ASTRO extents continuously its product portfolio in the segment of optical transmission for broadcasting in the FTTH/FTTB and Cable Operator market. Additionally to the existing products, there are now dual pump optical Amplifiers (EDFAS) for highest reliability available. Also new is an optical switch, usable for link redundancy or device redundancy. This is required to keep the downtime in the network to zero, in case of some fiber damage in the field or device failures. Not only with these new products from IP to  Optical Networks, ASTRO shows again the competence as a complete Systemprovider.
