Teleste introduces its new generation digital headend platform at ANGA COM 2019

Luminato 4X4 takes broadcast video from traditional to distributed access networks

Turku, Finland – 29 May 2019 – Teleste is thrilled to announce its new headend platform at ANGA COM 2019. The brand-new Luminato 4X4 has been designed with a built-in video engine to support operators when they make the shift to distributed access architecture. With its powerful and ultra dense edge QAM, the platform allows operators to freely scale up their video services when the need for channels such as high quality 4K increases. This guarantees that operators can run their services smoothly today as well as in the future.

Luminato 4X4 represents our commitment to providing the best-of-breed in video headends for operators today as well as during and after the big step to distributed access networks. All the familiar Luminato features and modules are there and, in addition, we have equipped the platform with technologies that guarantee powerful and uninterrupted delivery of services when both networks and customer demands change and rise to new levels,“ stated Julius Tikkanen, Vice President of Video Service Platforms for Teleste. “ANGA COM 2019 is the best place to introduce this product to our operator customers, so we invite you to visit us at the show to learn more.”

With Luminato 4X4, operators can:

  • Deliver broadcast video over traditional and distributed access networks:
    • Parallel QAM, IP and Remote PHY output interfaces ensure optimal video delivery today as well as in the future
    • Video engine conversion guarantees a smooth shift to distributed access architecture
  • Benefit from the latest, superior headend technology:

    • Line-speed multiplexing and scrambling with 40 Gb throughput
    • 60% lower power consumption
  • Go the extra mile for uninterrupted services:
    • High redundancy with two integrated PSUs and several 10 GbE interfaces

Built on the renowned Teleste Luminato heritage

Luminato 4X4 is built on the proven Teleste Luminato headend platform and is fully compatible with existing Luminato modules. The Luminato platform is deployed in more than 150 countries for content reception and live content processing and is trusted by cable TV operators and telcos as well as hospitality service providers of varying sizes and feature demands. Over the last 10 years, out of all the devices sent out from our factory in Finland, fewer than 0.3% have ever needed any hardware repair, which proves the platform’s long lifetime and high reliability.
