The Group of 20 (G20) world economic forum held June 18-20 inLos Cabos,Mexicoused the SMD 989 DVB-S/S2 satellite modulator by Sencore—a provider of signal quality and video delivery solutions—to broadcast video contribution and distribution feeds.
The SMD 989 was supplied and installed by International Media Services Inc., which holds the contract from the Mexican government for broadcast services for the G20 Mexico Summit, Sencore says.

“We have worked with Sencore on several projects, so we’re well-acquainted with the superior quality and reliability that is built into every Sencore product,” said Don Hughes, International Media Services’s vice president. “The SMD 989 is a reliable product that we know we can always count on,” he said. “Its support of advanced DVB-S2 modulation modes helps reduce transponder costs in any installation,” he added.

The SMD 989 offers efficient, flexible and reliable application for all types of satellite digital video delivery, Sencore says. The modulator’s intuitive user and remote interfaces, and out-of-box support for ASI and IP inputs ensures fast set up and system integration. At the G20 Mexico Summit, the SMD 989 was used to modulate signals from NTT encoders for distribution to international broadcasters.

“The G20 Mexico Summit is a significant milestone for the SMD 989, which has been steadily gaining market share as global broadcasters and service providers recognize the system’s reliability and versatility in large-scale contribution environments,” said Jeff Briden, Sencore’s vice president of product management.
