Press Release: NEW features for the TDcH

TRIAX headends: NEW features for the compact headend TDcH

Future-proof and flexible solution with multiple upgrade options

Hornsyld, Denmark, 20 October 2022 — The TDcH compact headend is now easily upgraded to support IP-In and SNMP monitoring via a new software licence (2.4.0). The software update also activates LED status displays at the inputs and outputs. The new version is available immediately and can be installed on all current and previous models.

The TRIAX compact headend was successfully launched 2 years ago. A highly future-proof platform, it offers great flexibility, with a range of features that can be individually upgraded (via software licences) to meet changing requirements. As experts in headend technology, TRIAX customers can be assured each and every TRIAX headend guarantees the same quality TRIAX experience.

“With the latest IP-In function, IPTV signals can now also be fed in and distributed via coaxial or ethernet networks. A typical application in the hospitality environment is the integration of IPTV services, which can be offered to guests as a programme expansion. In-house programmes with local offers can also be realised in this way and simply fed into the headend.”
– Diemar Rauch, Group Product Manager

The optional SNMP (Single Network Management Protocol) monitoring activates the function in the compact head- end and sends status changes via SNMP traps to SNMP-supporting monitoring software. This enables continuous monitoring, status queries and signalling even via remote networks.

The TDcH has been built on TRIAX advanced Next Generation Headend Platform which offers the full range of signal modulation options from satellite, terrestrial, cable, and now includes IP signals into QAM, COFDM or IP. For subscription TV projects a version with 8 CI slots is also available.

With its compact design, the TDcH can be installed in any 19” rack or wall mounted. Each headend is tested according to strict specifications and is delivered to the customer ready for configuration. Each TRIAX headend system can be set up and monitored via the browser-based management tool. To help deliver the best customer experience, TRIAX skilled team of support engineers are available to provide outstanding service for any installation requests. Regular updates and enhancements are planned for the flexible platform on-going.

Tyrstrup Kro

TRIAX

TV just like home

Now guests control their own entertainment with TRIAX Cast

Charming Tyrstrup Kro in Southern Jutland are proud to offer a complete guest experience. However, they wanted to improve the in-room entertainment they offered, as many guests watched content on their own devices.

Therefore, Tyrstrup Kro chose to look for a Cast solution. With a reliable TRIAX headend installed for many years, it was natural to choose TRIAX Cast.

TRIAX Cast offers guests a true home-from-home experience by letting them watch their favourite content on the in-room TV’s.

The hotel attracts a wide variety of age groups and it was important that the system is easy and intuitive.

”We need something that works. It must work every single time, and it must be so that different age groups can also use it themselves. We shouldn’t constantly have to go to the room and instruct – and the guests can do it on their own with TRIAX Cast. We are very pleased with that”
Torben Schulz, Owner, Tyrstrup Kro.

Buchwald Radio installed the Cast solution in spring 2022 in all 27 rooms.

The cast solution is installed discreetly behind the TV’s in all rooms, and TRIAX CastLock protects hardware from theft and tampering. And it is important that protection of the components is part of the solution.

”It’s a problem when guests tampers with something. It doesn’t have to be children, children comes in all ages. Then we have the problem when the next guests have to stay and things don’t work. But this is secured in the best possible way”
Torben Schulz, Owner, Tyrstrup Kro.

 

"We have always used TRIAX. The support has been amazing, the cooperation is amazing. There is always help – always."

—Torben Buchwald, Installer, Buchwald Radio

Better WiFi – no new cables
TRIAX EoC also upgraded the WiFi coverage at the hotel to a Gigabit connection. This supports the TRIAX Cast solution with strong, reliable WiFi in all rooms, and it also makes the new Gigabit bandwidth connection at the hotel come to full use.

The hotel is always busy with an occupancy rate above 90% and it was important that guest services were not affected, while installing WiFi.

A major benefit of TRIAX EoC is that no new cables had to be installed. With EoC, the installation of the 14 WiFi Endpoints was easy and discreet, without rooms being out of service during installation.

Guests have welcomed the upgrade of the connection.

“The guests now praise our WiFi and it always receives top marks in our reviews, which didn’t happen previously”
Torben Schulz, Owner, Tyrstrup Kro.

"We shouldn’t constantly have to go to the room and instruct – and the guests can do it on their own with TRIAX Cast. We are very pleased with that."

New Barns Caravan Park

TRIAX

Reliable WiFi & TV for all

The outstanding natural environment has long attracted visitors to New Barns, a caravan park near Arnside, Cumbria, nestled in abundant woodland overlooking an estuary.

Yet it was just this environment that caused the park owners many technical challenges in providing park members satisfactory TV reception and WiFi connectivity.

Some holiday homeowners had installed their own TV reception equipment, resulting in safety concerns around the site. TRIAX IRS equipment standardised TV reception site-wide, while removing the self-installed equipment resolved the safety issues and improved park aesthetics.

Today’s park members expect good WiFi no longer as a luxury but an essential amenity, and this was not provided by the existing installation.

The TRIAX EoC (Ethernet over Coax) installation provided the reliable WiFi connectivity needed, resulting in:

  • Quick, cost-saving installation: no new cables needed
  • Maximum WiFi coverage: dedicated access point in each holiday home
  • Increased saleability of holiday homes due to improved infrastructure

“For the first time in our history we can firmly say we have a reliably fast service that works extremely well for all. The TRIAX equipment is second to none and certainly worth the investment.”

— Robert & Darren Barber
Owners, New Barns Caravan Park

“Good and stable… fast and reliable.”

“Without doubt far superior… we are delighted with the improvements afforded by the TRIAX solution.”

“The new high-speed internet is excellent. We currently have our TV and 4 iPads connected at any one time; the system does not lag or affect our usage.”

— A selection of quotes from satisfied holiday homeowners

New Barns Caravan Park, family run since the 1940s, is located just outside the village of Arnside, Cumbria, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The TOFsat advantage

Fibre cabling has some significant advantages compared to coax cabling in general:
  • Higher bandwidth — a 3mm fibre cable substitutes 5x7mm coax drop cables for transmission of the full bandwidth for one Sat position and the terrestrial signals
  • Allows enlarged cabling distances because of the low attenuation of a fibre cable – about 0.35dB per 1 km
  • Prevention of electromagnetic ingress noise from LTE mobile services, for example, and disturbance from DC potential and transient currents because of the natural galvanic isolation of fibre cables
High flexibility
  • Reception of the vertical and horizontal polarised frequency ranges of a satellite position, plus terrestrial FM, DAB and DTT bands over one mutual fibre line
  • Optional use of different LNBs: Standard wideband LNB, K-band LNB or dCSS LNBs for operator-specific satellite programme bouquets
  • Enlargement of the FO networks by active FO Repeaters or EDFAs
Cost saving
  •  TOFsat is highly competitive because it uses frequency stacking and de-stacking for the Sat-IF-High, -Low and TER bands using specific ASIC chips. Thus only one laser transmitter and one optical receiver is sufficient for one entire Sat position and terrestrial transmission. (Comparing frequently-used wavelengths multiplexing in alternative systems needs 3 laser transmitters and 3 optical receivers in the re-converter for the same constellation. This increases the cost on the reception side, especially if large numbers of re-converters are connected.)
  • FO networks require less maintenance effort, and also less power consumption.

TRIAX and Ikusi Multimedia transition into one brand

Two great companies becoming ONE even greater

TRIAX—committed to our customers’ success

Hornsyld Denmark and San Sebastián Spain, 4 January 2022

Today we announce the launch of a single merged entity and brand: TRIAX.

Following the announcement of the merger between Ikusi Multimedia and TRIAX, we are excited about this next step in our journey in transitioning the two entities into a single company that has a deeper solution offering to the market as well as a broader expanding global footprint.

The headquarters for the united organisation will be in Denmark with subsidiaries in 11 countries and partner presence in 60 more.

Group CEO Ken Cordes explains the significance of becoming one company:

“Having one name and one brand is the mark of a new beginning. By becoming one company, it will make it clear to our employees, partners and customers what to expect from us. Also, it will allow us to focus further on developing products and solutions for a rapidly changing market.

“Though the company retains the TRIAX brand, we retain the deep product and solutions knowledge that the Ikusi team brings. It is an exciting time for the business, providing our customers with broader offerings and support. It is a new, revitalised company, with shared values and individual strengths combined into one.”

Becoming one company

The rebrand of the company is an ongoing progress. The consolidated product offering will be made available in early 2022.

Chief Client Solutions Officer Alfredo Juarranz says of the transition:

“Becoming one TRIAX brand resolves uncertainty for our customers, while at the same time bringing them all the benefits of full access to our consolidated range of products and services. The new TRIAX global strengths will enable to us to innovate in new ways while maintaining our dedication to local partners.”

TRIAX Global Executive Management Team

The new Global Executive Management Team consists of Chief Executive Officer Ken Cordes, Chief Financial Officer Carsten Frees, Chief Product Officer Carsten Nielsen, HR Director Itziar Lasagabaster, Chief Supply Chain Officer John Berg and Chief Client Solutions Officer Alfredo Juarranz.

Better TV for Studierendenwerk Mainz halls of residence

Studierendenwerk Mainz

More channel variety and cost savings

Studierendenwerk Mainz offers support to around 39,000 students in Mainz and Bingen. This includes various advisory services as well as the operation of refectories and cafeterias. In 10 residential complexes, there are also around 4,000 places available to local students and students who complete their semester abroad at the University of Mainz.

“TRIAX understands what is important. The expandability combined with the low maintenance costs speak for TRIAX headends.”

— Wolfgang Kerz
Antennen Redmann GmbH, Mainz

Modern satellite TV systems for all residential complexes

Studierendenwerk Mainz had previously been supplied with TV services via cable and satellite. In order to keep costs under control, the Studierendenwerk decided to modernise the existing satellite systems in order to save on cable fees. In addition, satellite reception via Astra 28° was made possible. As a result, a greater variety of programmes can now be offered in English.

In each hall of residence, a satellite system was installed to receive the positions Astra 19.2°E, Hotbird 13°E and Astra 28.2°E. The satellite signals are converted into DVB-C with a TDH 800 headend and fed into the existing cable networks.
Thanks to TDH 800’s pool technology and multiplexing, it is possible to combine TV channels from various satellites efficiently and cost-effectively in a few DVB-C channels, especially for more extensive installations. In addition, the distribution networks were reviewed, partially renewed and re-measured.

Wallstr. Sat-Aufbereitung

Extensive TV offer

With all installations complete, a wide range of German and international TV programmes can now be offered in all halls of residence. Analogue or pixelated television images are a thing of the past. The virtually maintenance-free TDH 800 headends, with their low power consumption, keep the operating costs for the Mainz student plant within limits. In addition, the monthly costs for cable TV could be saved.
