Vancouver, CANADA, June 26th, 2023 – WISI, a global leader in carrier-grade video technologies, is thrilled to announce the immediate release of its advanced ATSC 3.0 receiver. The new video application is available through the launch of the VMA-AT3 receiver module for the Inca IP Video Platform.  

WISI’s new receiver supports the reception of ATSC 1.0 (8VSB) and ATSC 3.0 source signals — empowering video operators to future-proof their networks, enhance services, and maintain a competitive edge in the evolving landscape of over-the-air TV.  

Key advantages of WISI’s new ATSC 3.0 receiver for the Inca IP Video Platform include: 

  • Smooth Transition and Future-Proofing: WISI’s new module enables video operators to receive ATSC 1.0 broadcast signals today and seamlessly upgrade to ATSC 3.0 when ready. With the ability to mix ATSC 1.0 and ATSC 3.0 reception in a single module, operators can smoothly transition as broadcasters migrate to the new standard, ensuring continuity of service and minimizing disruptions. 
  • Network Infrastructure Revitalization: The Inca IP Video Platform allows operators to receive ATSC 3.0 signals and convert them to IP transport stream for network delivery, enabling operators to extend the lifespan of existing infrastructure and avoid costly overhauls. 
  • Modular Platform Flexibility: WISI’s Inca IP Video Platform offers a modular approach, allowing video operators to customize the chassis based on their specific requirements. Operators can add modules to transcode High-Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) video to MPEG-2/MPEG-4 within the same chassis, providing flexibility and adaptability as technology evolves. 
  • Remote Upgrades for Operational Efficiency: WISI’s ATSC 3.0 receiver enables operators to upgrade to the new standard remotely, with only a software upgrade and no additional hardware, eliminating the need for physical visits and costly truck rolls. Operators can seamlessly implement ATSC 3.0 functionality and take advantage of its advanced features without disrupting their operations. 

The Inca IP Video Platform is a live linear and ABR solution that specializes in bridging the gap between current and future video technologies and can replace racks of headend equipment with one sophisticated platform. Included in the platform is VidiOS™, an award-winning video monitoring solution. VidiOS™ enables easy monitoring of every stream in a video network for expedited troubleshooting and analysis. Essential features include inbound and outbound video thumbnails, stream capture and download, extensive statistical analysis, and rapid stream configuration. 

“We are excited to introduce our highly anticipated ATSC 3.0 receiver for the Inca IP Video Platform,” said Sharen Sandhu, VP of Product at WISI America. “We are working with many operators that require a replacement ATSC 1.0 receiver that can also receive ATSC 3.0 signals. Operators want to maximize their capital expenditure and invest in a future-proof over-the-air solution that prepares them for the future of television. WISI remains committed to empowering video operators with easy to use and easy to deploy solutions, that maximize operational efficiency.”
