Serge Van Herck, CEO and chairman, Newtec, will make the welcome address

At the 2012 NAB show, on Monday, 16 April, 2012, 4.30 PM – 6 PM (room S224), a session presented by Steven Soenens, director, product marketing, broadcast, Newtec,  satellite networks will be explored in terms of their growing potential in the broadcast sector.

In addition to the native support of IP protocols in satcom solutions and standards, in this session, you can find out how new technologies and applications are applied to build multiservice satellite networks in a bandwidth-efficient manner.

The amount of HD and 3DTV content, as well as other services transmitted over satellite are growing. From streaming video, file transfers, VOIP, broadband and general purpose IP traffic – satellite networks have become truly multi-service and therefore need to be highly versatile and efficient. In addition to the native support of IP protocols in satcom solutions and standards, in this session, you can find out how new technologies and applications are applied to build multiservice satellite networks in a bandwidth-efficient manner, including Ka-band satellite systems, advanced RF pre-distortion technologies, adaptive coding and modulation, modulation extensions on top of DVB-S2, cross-layer optimisation, internet traffic acceleration and shaping, opportunistic and guaranteed file transfer algorithms, among other aspects.

Panel discussion on satellite interference and Carrier ID
Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) is the largest single issue that impacts quality of service for satellite operators and their customers. Any outage due to RFI inevitably results in revenue losses by the broadcaster, satellite operator, or both.  At NAB, Newtec is hosting a panel discussion in which some influential satellite operators and broadcasters will share their insight and opinions on this topic – the panel discussion will be moderated by Thomas Van den Driessche, director of vertical markets, Newtec.
