Professional Broadband Solutions

The accelerating merger of TV and IP and the delivery of high resolution content to various fixed and mobile end devices are more and more challenging network operators. At this year’s IBC (September 13 – 17, 2013) WISI Communications GmbH & Co. KG (WISI) will demonstrate how these challenges can be managed in a very efficient way in Hall 4 at its booth B50. The leading system provider and pioneer of reception and distribution solutions will show under the motto “Professional Broadband Solutions” its next generation Headend systems Chameleon and Tangram. Another highlight is the new end device combining HbbTV with classical IPTV in one Set-top box. The new optical platform Optopus and WISI’s fibre node and amplifier portfolio completes the innovative product offering.


WISI’s future-proof software based headend system is the ideal solution for network operators, broadcasters and IPTV platform operators. Utilizing a single hardware all Chameleon modules are configured and programmed by software only. The conception behind offers an extreme flexibility in transforming different input signals into all relevant current output formats to the operator and reduces total cost of ownership of his network headend. Among others available software modules for Chameleon are DVB modulators for different inputs, transmodulators, IP- and ASI streamer as well as re-multiplexer. Chameleon also has been awarded by the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) in London with the international prestigious SCTE Award 2013 for Technical Innovation in the category „Best digital processing solution“.

New modules for Tangram

WISI has extended its Tangram product family by new modules. The new DVB-IP Gateway IP streamer GT 31, the switch extension board GT 12, the decryption module GT 42, the Edge-COFDM module GT 24, the ASI Input/Output module GT32. Tangram is a high-density platform for extremely cost efficient „Edge“ applications (IP-Gateway, Edge-QAM, Edge-COFDM, Edge-PAL and Edge-FM) and the perfect answer to the ongoing digitalization of networks and the fact, that more and more video signals are transported via IP transmission. For feeding these IP encapsulated video signals into the analogue access networks like RF Overlay or HFC, these signals need to be converted in QAM, COFDM, PAL and FM. Tangram offers all required features to be used in professional networks like redundant power supplies, 1+1 and n+1 redundancy, time sharing, SNMP management, hot plug replacement of modules, fans and power supplies and many more.

Optopus and the new high performance amplifier LX 35

The access platform Optopus ideally fits into every optical network such as FTTx with RF Overlay, RF over Glass architectures as well as HFC applications. This modular system provides the operator with high flexibility, reliability and a very high density. At IBC 2013 WISI presents the new optical high performance amplifier (EDFA) LX 35 that has a very high packing density. This device offers the performance of two conventional amplifiers. This reduces cost for the operator and reduces the overall power consumption of the network. LX35 is part of WISI’s RF Overlay portfolio that consists of a comprehensive range of optical 1550nm transmitters and amplifiers. These in particular meet the necessary requirements of blast and split architectures used in Point-to-Point or PON networks

Set-top box combines HbbTV with classical IPTV

At IBC WISI will show a Set-top box working with the ETSI DVB-IP standard that is able to process and display HbbTV functionalities and content (multicast TV channels) via a IP net.
