Thailand’s IEC, America’s Telairity, and China’s CBC combine forces to implement new network; system will use CMMB (China Mobile Media Broadcast) technology Installation of an advanced mobile digital video network throughout Thailand is moving ahead with the signing of a strategic partnership announced in Beijing. Thailand’s International Engineering Public Company Limited (IEC), the China Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), and the United States’ Telairity, Inc. (http://www.telairity.com) will work together to deploy a digital video mobile broadcasting network throughout Thailand.
The project starts in Bangkok next month (3/2011) and will be based on CMMB (China Mobile Media Broadcast) wireless technology.
The announcement was made in China by Ben Silva, Telairity Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Business Development. Telairity was responsible for developing the three-way strategic partnership and will be the systems integrator for the project.
According to Silva, the agreement brings together the resources of IEC, one of Thailand’s premier engineering and mobile deployment firms; CBC, currently operating the world’s largest mobile broadcasting network; and Telairity, America’s most respected designer, manufacturer and global system integrator of video encoding/head end solutions.
Telairity’s expertise covers the full spectrum of digital video broadcast system design and deployment including DVB-S/S2, DVB-H, DVB-C, DVB-T/T2, DTH, IPTV, mobile broadcasting and enterprise video applications.
Thailand’s new network will use China’s CMMB technical standard: similar in concept but more advanced and cost-effective than the European Union’s DVB-H protocol. Over 5,000 multipoint, terminal, and mobile phone models worldwide are compatible with the CMMB mobile broadcasting signal.
In 2010, IEC received government permission to implement Thailand’s first mobile digital broadcasting television system together with Mass Communication Organization (MCOT), a Thai state national broadcaster enterprise.
With Telairity’s assistance, supported by CBC, IEC selected CMMB technology, Telairity as the prime systems integrator and head-end provider, and Digital Horizon, the world’s leading DVB deployment specialist to implement the nationwide mobile broadcast system.
The Thai network is the latest in Telairity’s extensive portfolio of Far East projects. Other accomplishments include providing encoders for China’s national weather bureau; supplying encoders for an advanced digital consumer services network throughout China; and developing dual-format encoders based on both Chinese and western H.264 encoding standards.
