Newtec demonstrates DualFlow™ at
NAB Show 2011 in
Las Vegas 


Leading satellite communications company enables broadcasters to migrate to IP progressively, efficiently and cost effectively



LAS VEGAS, NV and SINT-NIKLAAS, Belgium, 6 April 2011. Newtec, a global industry leader shaping the future of satellite communications, will demonstrate to broadcasters, integrators, SNG operators and network operators at NAB 2011 that there no longer needs to be a choice between traditional Asynchronous Serial Interface (ASI) and IP-based workflows.


The company will be exhibiting its DualFlowtechnology, which is available on Newtec’s Azimuth satellite broadcast equipment. It guarantees future-proof flexibility allowing broadcasters to easily migrate to satellite-based IP operations through interfacing with both ASI and IP networks.


Serge Van Herck, CEO of Newtec, said: “Regardless of where you are with IP migration, Newtec’s equipment with DualFlow assures a flexible, cost efficient and future-proof solution. The migration towards IP is only a matter of time. The good news is: with DualFlow, the timing is completely up to you.”


DualFlow accomplishes the evolution from traditional broadcast contribution to complete IP interactivity over satellite by supporting both ASI and IP connectivity, enabling the transmission of both IP and TV content in DVB-S2, as well as making two-way communication possible. These increase productivity and potential business, and improve cost efficiency and flexibility. 


Newtec VP Worldwide Sales Jean-Pierre De Muyt will also be speaking on the first day of the conference at 10am in Room SU10502.


De Muyt said: “I will be discussing IP-based interaction on the television set, and how it promises an expanding range of on-demand, transactional and multi-screen experiences for viewers. I’ll also be looking at the technology and supply-chain innovations that enable this to happen.


Newtec will also be exhibiting a range of its other products at the show, including its recently updated reliable and state-of-the-art high-end OEM modulator and demodulator boards as well as generic satellite equipment like frequency converters/combiners, redundancy switches and data converters.
