Mark Roseberry will be teaching two short courses on Telemetry over IP

Mark Roseberry will be teaching two short courses on Telemetry over IP at this year’s ITC (International Telemetering Conference). The conference will be October 21-24th in Las Vegas, at Bally’s Hotel and Convention Center.

The full day course will be Monday, October 21st. This course covers current approaches and capabilities for transporting PCM telemetry over an IP network (TMoIP), including discussion of the benefits and limitations of this technology. An introduction and review of essential network and PCM telemetry topics including the OSI network model, practical implementation considerations and topologies, and associated TMoIP PCM formats and network protocols is included.

The three key RCC IRIG standards for TMoIP are described: IRIG 218 and IRIG 106 Chapter 10 over UDP, and iNET. Interactive and scripted setup, configuration, status, and dia


NetAcquire Corporation Announces New Real-Time Media Transcoder Option

Now with the Media Transcoder Option you can configure a NetAcquire server for real-time streaming video processing, archiving, and distribution.

The NetAcquire Media Transcoder Option allows a NetAcquire server to process incoming still images and motion video. This option supports transcoding (decoding and re-encoding) images and video to different formats.

Media transcoding leverages the data processing capabilities of the Data Flow Engine and is seamlessly integrated with other Data Flow Engine components, including the decommutator and CCSDS demultiplexer. In fact, transcoding can be added to any data flow instance using the Media Transcoder component.

Video output can then be viewed simultaneously by multiple video clients using MissionView™ application software, a web browser or standal

NetAcquire Announces Mission Critical TMOIP Over Impossible Networks

NetAcquire® Corporation announced today that it has extended the capabilities of their lineup of market leading real-time mission-critical TMoIP systems. This is now possible with the addition of advanced support for communication over “impossible” networks, those where guaranteed delivery of IP multicast data to multiple nodes in the network, reliable multicast, is a particular challenge.

This new NetAcquire Telemetry over IP capability offers a powerful forward error correction option that can recover lost packets even on very poor networks.

The system has been successfully tested on simulated poor quality networks that randomly dropped as many as one out of every three packets – until now, a truly impossible network condition. A system that can operate without data loss under such extreme conditions is ideal for mission-critical applications that must cope with challeng

NetAcquire® Corporation Announces a New Collection of Universal I/O Interface Options

NetAcquire® Corporation announced today a new collection of universal I/O interface options for serial signal connections. These new I/O interfaces offer configurable signal levels and connectors, and enhance NetAcquire’s “connect anything to anything” interface approach. The flexibility to reduce the rack space needed to a bare minimum is now available. Chassis back panels can now be configured to match exact signaling needs, even in 2U form factors.

The TTL-compatible, BNC I/O interface version includes highly optimized signal conditioning with tuned transmission line impedances. Input hysteresis retains signal integrity at edge frequencies in excess of 10 GHz.

Faster system integration is achievable using newly available software-programmable line termination. Each channel can be individually set to quickly match a site’s existing cabling impedance, eliminating the signal integrity problems associated with fixed single value termination typical with some equipment.
