Global association of TV broadcasters ENEX chooses IP contribution solution R&S RelayCaster from Rohde & Schwarz

For its new global contribution and distribution network, the global association for TV broadcasters ENEX chose R&S RelayCaster, the IP contribution solution from Rohde & Schwarz. R&S RelayCaster delivers reliable contribution and distribution of live content over unmanaged IP networks. System integrator EuroMedia Services helped integrate the solution.

Many master control rooms of the ENEX partners located worldwide have to be connected.

The ENEX association, with local partners in more than 50 countries, shares their news content and new production resources with their members. ENEX holds permanent satellite capacity for their use. Looking for an alternative to satellites as an exchange platform for live content, ENEX has specific requirements for the new equipment. First, the many master control rooms of the partners located worldwide have to be connected as best as possible using the current infrastructure. And high stability and reliability with low latency has to be achieved while keeping the investment as low as possible.

R&S RelayCaster achieves high transmission reliability by reducing packet losses to a minimum, providing the necessary quality of service (QoS) conditions for uninterrupted transmission. Optional encryption based on the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) provides end-to-end protection of the transmitted data streams. The only challenge was to link the typical broadcast environment to the IP world. This meant bridging both worlds to acquire the necessary competence and to meet and adapt various security challenges.

Adrian Wells, Managing Director of ENEX, said: “We want to take advantage of the increased performance of IP technologies and networks. R&S RelayCaster is an excellent fit for our global network.’’
