The newly re-designed DEV booth at stand 1.F50 will showcase the company’s equipment for RF signal transmission, switching, and distribution over coaxial and fibre cable, with a spotlight on the DEV 1996 Distributing Matrix. Selected DEV 1996 models are now shipped with a free iPad for Matrix control as part of a promotion launched for IBC.
The DEV 1996 matrix is an L-band signal switching and distribution system that is modularly expandable from 16 x 32 to 1024 x 1024 channels. Its advantages reportedly include superior RF performance, a robust, proven design with full fan out matrix distribution, hot-swappable modules for interruption-free operation and expansion, and an easy, intuitive, and flexible graphical user interface control system. For control via the web interface option, DEV is providing free iPads to configure, monitor, switch and manage DEV 1996 systems with 32 x 32 or more channels.
Leading broadcast operators worldwide rely, the company claims, on DEV’s highly flexible, modular, and customisable solutions. DEV’s portfolio covers coaxial cable as well as fiber optic infrastructures, all frequency bands, and all common management systems in CATV head-ends and satellite ground stations.
