France-based broadcast monitoring and measurement tools provider, Audemat, has inked a deal with South African network infrastructure provider, Sentech, to provide 45 Goldeneagle DVB-T2 monitoring platforms to monitor its DVB-T2 transmissions at 30 high power sites throughout the network and to conduct off-air monitoring from Control Centres located at various locations throughout the country.
“It is Sentech’s experience that the Goldeneagle DVB-T2 units were easy to install and configure. In service, we find that measured results are recorded and presented in a clear, intuitive and logical manner,” said Marius Sheepers, Manager of Transmitter Systems within Sentech.
Each Goldeneagle DVB-T2 provides RF monitoring of two MUXes and analysis of an MPEG 2TS stream. The NMS software of the Goldeneagle also interfaces via SNMP so that all information can be incorporated into Sentech’s entire monitoring infrastructure.
