Prairie Public Broadcasting in Fargo, ND, is using Controlware Communications Systems network adapters as part of its migration from analog microwave transmission to digital microwave transmission.
Controlware ATM adapters allow the broadcaster to make efficient use of available bandwidth and provide a simple, reliable interface between its digital microwave and digital MPEG encoding equipment.
Controlware equipment offers two-way audio and video transmission capability, making it easy for the public broadcaster to monitor its remote transmitters, distribute content and get return feeds back from remote studios.
Controlware's network adapters support various digital interfaces to video codecs, including SDI, DVB/ASI, DVB/SPI, E3, DS3, E1 and T1. They bridge the gap between professional video applications and the demands of error-free, high-speed transmission with delivery at variable bit rates depending on the quality of the picture and the bandwidth required for a given output.
