Agilent's digital video test solutions at IBC2010

MUMBAI: Agilent Technologies will demonstrate its solutions for DVB-T2, DAB/Dab+ and ATSC-M/H for broadcasting transmitters and receivers research, development and manufacturing at IBC2010.

The event takes place from 10-14 September 2010 in Amsterdam.
Agilent’s Europe, Middle East, Africa market development manager Renaud Duverne says, "IBC is the ideal venue for demonstrating our test solutions and showing how they support the broadcast ecosystem".

Said Agilent China video operation manager Hai-Tao Zhang, "As a DVB Consortium and WorldDMB Forum member, we have gained valuable insight into the evolving needs of the broadcast industry. This insight, coupled with our in-depth customer knowledge, allows us to deliver the leading-edge digital broadcast test solutions that today’s engineers demand."

Agilent will demonstrate the following solutions at the IBC2010 exhibition:

* DVB-T/H/T2 Test Solution -- this solution is based on Agilent’s Signal Studio and its X-Series measurement applications. DVB-T2 (Digital Video Terrestrial Broadcasting -- Second Generation) is an extension of the television standard DVB-T and is issued by the DVB consortium.

* Dab/Dab+/DMB-Audio Test Solution -- Agilent’s Signal Studio for broadcast radio simplifies the creation of standard-based waveforms for FM stereo/ RDS/RBDS, DAB, DAB+, T-DMB and DMB-Audio components and receivers test. The test solution supports Dab/DMB and makes it easier to support the WorldDMB library for receiver profiles (1/2/3).  
* ATSC-M/H Test Solution -- Agilent’s Signal Studio generates the ATSC-M/H signals for receiver test. ATSC-M/H is a standard for mobile digital TV that allows TV broadcasts to be received by mobile devices written in the A/153 standard.

* Agilent MXG N5182A RF vector signal generator -- The N5182A is optimised for component design and production verification with ACPR performance, power, switching, and scalable baseband and RF performance. Frequency range can be chosen from 100 kHz to 3 GHz or 6 GHz, and output power is up to +23 dBm.

* Agilent PXB N5106A baseband signal generator and channel emulator -- the N5106A is designed for use across the R&D lifecycle (design to performance test) and offers multichannel baseband generation (BBG), real-time fading, and signal capture in a single, multi-purpose instrument. The PXB’s capabilities make it ideal for engineers working on product development and conducting advanced research.

* Agilent N9020A MXA X-Series spectrum analyzer -- the N9020A, when used in combination with one of the X-Series advanced measurement applications, delivers an excellent performance test solution set for digital video/audio standards such as DVB-T/H/T2, ISDB-T, ATSC, CMMB, DTMB (CTTB) and DAB.

* Agilent N9342C handheld spectrum analyzer -- the N9342C frequency range is from 100 kHz to 7 GHz (tunable to 9 kHz) with a built-in tracking generator and GPS receiver. The analyzer supports powerful measurement features including power suite, spectrum monitor and USB power sensor support.
